Sofia Coppola checking into 'Somewhere'
Stephen Dorff and Elle Fanning starring in LA dramedy
After having a Tokyo hotel as the centerpiece of her breakthrough Oscar-winning film "Lost in Translation," Sofia Coppola has found new accommodations for her latest project. Variety reports Coppola's "Somewhere" will be set at the Chateau Marmont on the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood.
Stephen Dorff and Elle Fanning will star in the Coppola penned dramedy that centers on a difficult actor who is living a self-indulgent life at the Marmont. When his 11-year-old daughter makes an unexpected visit, he's forced to put his life in perspective.
Coppola told the trade she was looking to tell "an intimate story set in contemporary Los Angeles" and received permission to shoot at the historic hotel which has unfortunately become a haven for paparazzi-friendly celebrities.
The project should have many in the industry buzzing as to who Dorf's bad boy character could be based on. It's well known that Coppola's "Translation" was inspired by her own famous ex-husband's infidelity.
Fanning recently appeared in "Phoebe in Wonderland" and "The Curious Case of Benjamin." Dorff has Michael Mann's "Public Enemies" set for release this July and "Black Water Transit" later this year.
"Somewhere" will begin shooting in Los Angeles and Italy this June.
