I can't wait for this. Sofia Coppola, the genius that brought us The Virgin Suicides, Lost in Translation and Marie Antoinette is flimming a new movie starring Stephen Dorff and Dakota Fanning's little sister Elle. The plot go something like this:
"Johnny Marco (Stephen Dorff) is a bad-boy A-List actor stumbling through a life of excess while living at Hollywood’s legendary Chateau Marmont Hotel. His days are a haze of drinks, girls, fast cars and fawning fans. Cocooned in this celebrity-induced artificial world, Johnny has lost all sense of his true self. Until, that is, his 11-year-old daughter Cleo (Elle Fanning) unexpectedly shows up and unwittingly begins to anchor him. Johnny’s fragile connection to real life slowly revives in her presence. So when the time comes fro Cleo to leave, his sense of loss is palpable, but the gift of hope she has also brought him leads to a beautiful, poetic denouement imbued with all of Coppola’s remarkable powers to conjure mood and atmosphere." - The Playlist
Written and directed by Sofia, its something of a family affiar, with her brother Roman and executive produced by their Francis Ford Coppola (along with Fred Roos and Paul Rassam) through his American Zoetrope studio.
The film will debut at the Venice Film Festival, then everywhere else at the end of the year on 22nd of December. You can watch the trailer here.
