Sofia Coppola's Next Project

Film auteur writer/director Sofia Coppola...

"...will set her next film at the iconic Chateau Marmont in Hollywood.

Stephen Dorff and Elle Fanning will star in the Focus Features dramedy "Somewhere," which Coppola penned.

Story centers on a bad-boy actor stumbling through a life of excess at the Chateau Marmont. With an unexpected visit from his 11-year-old daughter, he is forced to reexamine his life.

The filmmaker, who said she has been looking to make "an intimate story set in contemporary Los Angeles," received permission to shoot at the hotel, which has become notorious in recent years as a popular address for tabloid-friendly celebs. Film will lense in L.A. and Italy in June and July."

Doesn't sound all that interesting, but Coppola has made some good movies.

"Doesn't sound all that interesting"

Neither does, "Washed up actor meets newlywed in a Tokyo hotel"...
