Sofia Coppola Gives Birth!

Sofia Coppola gave birth today to a girl. The father is Coppola's boyfriend, musician Thomas Mars. No official confirmation just yet on the newborn's arrival, but it's told they have named her Romy.

Coppola and Mars met after she used his band Phoenix's song "Too Young" in the soundtrack of her 2004 film Lost in Translation, for which she won a screenwriting Oscar.

Coppola, the daughter of director Francis Ford Coppola, most recently wrote and directed Marie Antoinette, a biopic about the French queen starring Kirsten Dunst.

Coppola To Stage First Ever Opera

Marie Antoinette filmmaker Sofia Coppola will stage her first opera in 2009, after reaching an agreement with France's Montpellier Opera House.. The Oscar-nominated Lost In Translation director's first foray into the operatic world will see her mastermind Puccini romantic tragedy Manon Lescaut during the venue's 2009-2010 season. Controversial tenor Robert Alagna has been lined up to star in the show - he stormed off stage during a performance of Verdi's Aida in Milan, Italy and refused to return.

you are correct in that, except that it may be interpreted as she was Oscar-nominated DIRECTOR, which she is.

She is an Oscar-winning screenwriter :)

Sofia Coppola books Marmont film
Director turns to Hollywood hotel for pic
Source: Variety

Sofia Coppola is checking into a new hotel for her next project.

The writer-director who shot her "Lost in Translation" at the Park Hyatt in Tokyo, practically making a character out of the antiseptic structure, 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.

Project reunites Coppola with the film company with which she made the critical darling and box office hit "Lost in Translation."

"'Lost in Translation' remains among Focus' most beloved movies, so we have long looked forward to making another picture with Sofia," Focus CEO James Schamus said. "'Somewhere' will have all the witty, moving and empathetic qualities that characterize all her work."

"Somewhere" is something of a family affair. Coppola is producing with brother Roman Coppola ("The Darjeeling Limited") and G. Mac Brown ("Australia") through American Zoetrope. Father Francis Ford Coppola, Fred Roos and Paul Rassam are exec producing.

Pathe will have rights to the film in France, Benelux and Switzerland; and Tohokushinsa is taking Japan and select Asian territories. Medusa Film will have rights to "Somewhere" in Italy, while Focus will control rights in all other territories.

Project marks Sofia Coppola's fourth film. She also wrote and directed "The Virgin Suicides" and "Marie Antoinette."

Fanning most recently starred in "Phoebe in Wonderland."

Dorff will next appear in Michael Mann's "Public Enemies" for Universal Pictures.

Chris Pontius going 'Somewhere'
'Jackass' co-star cast in Sofia Coppola film
Source: Hollywood Reporter

Chris Pontius has booked a room in Sofia Coppola's "Somewhere."

The "Jackass" trouper will play Sammy, best friend of the character played by Stephen Dorff, a decadent, bad-boy actor living at the Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood who begins to re-examine his life after a surprise visit from his 11-year-old daughter (Elle Fanning).

Coppola, who wrote, directed and produced "Marie Antoinette" and "Lost in Translation," is doing the same for "Somewhere." Francis Ford Coppola, Fred Roos and Paul Rassam are executive producers on the American Zoetrope/Focus Features production.

Pontius, repped by Gersh and Untitled Entertainment, had roles in "Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle" and "What We Do Is Secret."

Sofia Coppola and Kirsten Dunst To Re-Team On New Project ‘Secret Door’
Source: The Playlist

With the film hitting DVD & Blu-Ray in the last week, the dust has firmly settled on Sofia Coppola‘s fourth directorial effort, “Somewhere.” And we’re sticking with our original view that, while the film wasn’t a failure exactly, with Coppola seemingly achieving exactly what she set out to, what she set out to achieve was a shallow character study of an entirely vacuous shell of a human being, and that the finished project was one of the more painful viewing experiences we had last year (It should be noted, however, that the film has its defenders on staff, with our man in Australia naming it among his favorite films of 2010). But everyone’s allowed a misfire once in a while, and as long time fans of the writer-director, we’ve got our fingers crossed that she’ll bounce back on her next film. And indeed, like the big J.C, Easter Sunday has seen Coppola roll back the stone, step out into the light and announce a new project—and one that’s set to reunite her with her most frequent muse, no less. The twitter account of American Zoetrope, the production company run by Sofia’s father Francis Ford Coppola, which has backed all four of her pictures, announced a few hours ago that Coppola’s got a new film in the works, entitled “Secret Door,” and that Kirsten Dunst, who starred in both “The Virgin Suicides” and “Marie Antoinette” for the director, has signed on to appear in the film. The exact tweet reads: “Happy to announce that Kirsten Dunst has agreed to be in Sofia Coppola‘s new film ‘Secret Door’. Script is still being finished. Stay tuned!” There are no further details on the film at this stage—“Secret Door” doesn’t apply to any obvious existing property that she could be adapting (there’s an Enid Blyton book, and an Arctic Monkeys song, but a link with either is unlikely), and the only unmade Coppola project that we’re aware of was a “European vampire” tale derailed by the success of the “Twilight” series, so this would appear to be something entirely new. It’s probably safe to speculate that the film could be set up at Focus, who’ve been behind Coppola’s last three films, while the title seems to suggest something genre-tinged, which at least promises something different from her ‘celebrity’ trilogy—but again, this is, at least at this stage, educated guesswork. With Coppola still writing away, this isn’t going to be moving forward immediately, even with the usual brevity of her scripts (“Somewhere” came in at a not-exactly-whopping 44 pages), but we’ll report more details as and when they appear.

Updated: Sofia Coppola and Kirsten Dunst Won’t Re-Team On New Project ‘Secret Door’
source: The Playlist

Update: Sorry, Coppola fans, looks like we’ve been had by a hoaxer. When we ran the story yesterday, the account looked genuine enough, but subsequent tweets were more suspicious, in particular 8 pages of script ‘leaked’ onto the account, 8 pages of some of the worst writing we’ve ever seen (Sample: “It was he, I pondered most of”). With the legitimacy looking increasingly fishy, we have now confirmed with Kirsten Dunst’s reps that this project is indeed a hoax. We’re not quite sure who has the goddamn time to write a script pretending to be Sofia Coppola, but there we go. Apologies.
My assholeness knows no bounds.

At this point, I think it's safe to say that any film that isn't aimed at Sofia's target audience (her and her celebrity friends) is a hoax.

Sofia Coppola Getting Married in Great Grandfather's Hometown
She will wed Thomas Mars, the lead singer of French rock band Phoenix.

Filmmaker Sofia Coppola will marry in Italy on Saturday in the remote town of Bernalda where her great grandfather was born, according to the Associated Press.

Coppola, who has directed Lost in Translation and most recently Somewhere, wed lead singer of French rock band Phoenix, Thomas Mars, who is also the father of their two young children. The ceremony took place in the garden of a palazzo that her father, director Francis Ford Coppola, renovated in the town's center, mayor Leonardo Chiruzzi said. The family plans to turn it into a luxury hotel, a 12-room Palazzo Margherita.

Bernalda was home to the elder Coppola's grandfather Agostino; he emigrated to the U.S. in the beginning of the 20th century.

Lost in Translation, the 2003 film starring Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson, brought Sofia Coppola's first Academy Award for an original screenplay. She was also the third woman ever to be nominated for directing.

This marks Coppola's second marriage. She was previously married to director Spike Jonze, with whom she divorced in 2003.
