Sofia Coppola gets Somewhere with Focus

Sofia Coppola gets Somewhere with Focus Image

Director Sofia Coppola is teaming up again with Focus Features, who distributed her break out hit Lost in Translation, to make her new film Somewhere. Set in West Hollywood’s famous Chateau Marmont hotel, Somewhere tells the story of Johnny Marco (Stephen Dorff), an actor living life to its excesses until a visit from his 11-year-old daughter (Elle Fanning) makes him wake up to face himself. The film is going to be a family affair, as Sofia Coppola is producing the film with her brother Roman, and their dad, the great Francis Ford Coppola, will be an executive producer. Production will take place this summer. Focus CEO James Schamus happily commented, “Lost in Translation remains among Focus’ most beloved movies, so we have long looked forward to making another picture with Sofia. Somewhere will have all the witty, moving, and empathetic qualities that characterize all her work.”
