Thanks to The Playlist, the latest scoop on my fav female director Ms. Sophia Coppola is that her next film is on the books and underway with casting!
The film currently titled Somewhere, is set to star none other than disappearing act Stephen Dorff. I have to admit I'm not to familiar with his work apart from Blade... so this should be interesting to say the least. The story will follow a Hollywood bad boy (Dorff) as he rots away within the confines of infamous hotel, the Chateau Marmont. Elle Fanning will play his daughter (whom I can only assume will have issues of her own).
Already there's talk that Dorff will be the next Mickey Rourke when it comes to comebacks... I don't want to go making any big assumptions yet, but I have not been let down by Coppola to date, so my faith in her to make another beautiful film is fairly unwavering at the point. Especially given her description of wanting to make an "intimate" contemporary story set in Los Angeles.
I feel like an impatient kid months away from Christmas (Chanukah for me)!!!
