I like what you said about it, Not Plain Jane. It's a bit uncomfortable to watch because it feels like a sadly accurate reflection of a soulless culture. I still think the film should have a more substantial core in terms of character or emotion, but it's effective. I feel like I know several of the characters from school... the "types" were spot on, though the acting wasn't always. I felt that Marc and Rebecca were poorly acted, Nicki and Sam were very good, and Chloe was PERFECT.

I just saw the Bling Ring.

...This movie sucked so bad I was shocked. It's...I'm not even sure I can pinpoint what was wrong with it...It had less emotions than a documentary. It didn't have enough action/plot to keep me engaged with that,so I hoped the characters would "carry" the movie.

They didn't.

Siblings Sofia Coppola and Roman Coppola will produce a movie version of Alysia Abbott’s “Fairyland: A Memoir of My Father” through the American Zoetrope banner.

Sofia Coppola and Andrew Durham will co-write the screenplay for the coming of-age story, published in June by W. W. Norton & Co. Durham is a photographer who collaborates regularly with Coppola.

“Fairyland” is set against the backdrop of San Francisco’s cultural scene in the 1970s and ’80s, before and after the AIDS epidemic — which would later claim the life of Abbott’s father.

“I love the book ‘Fairyland; it’s a sweet and unique love story of a girl and her dad, both growing up together in 1970′s San Francisco,” Coppola said. “I think it will make an engaging and touching movie on a subject I’ve never seen before.”

This is so exciting. Since Coppola herself was a child growing up in SF in this same time period, probably being exposed to the same sort of culture, I think she'll get the tone just right. I really hope she signs on to direct as well.

^Yay! This is fantastic news. I'm hoping that Sofia choses to direct the film as well, it sounds like it could be a great project for her, it's definitely a interesting story. Just the other day I was wondering what if Sofia had any new projects in the works, so glad to hear that she's working on something new. Plus this sounds like an interesting follow up to The Bling Ring. Which by the way, I finally got around to seeing a few weeks ago, I was really impressed with it. I liked the way Sofia captured the culture, it was at times uncomfortable to watch because she was just presenting the scene and holding up the mirror, and no one really wants to see what parts of our culture can be like. But of course these images do need to be shared and I think the way she told the whole story was interesting, that she just laid out all the info and you made up your own thoughts about these teens. It's a clever way of going about things.

I'm such a big Sofia Coppola fan. I really love all her movies, I watch them many times. I think she is very talented. My favorite movie of her is Marie Antoinette.

Sofia Coppola's The Little Mermaid
Quote:
Filmmaker Sofia Coppola will reportedly be directing a dark, live action version of the Hans Christian Andersen novel The Little Mermaid. And according to some sources, this won’t be a Disney movie—the script is being described as “exquisite and painful”, and The Independent says the film may focus on the story’s utter bleakness. Either way, it should be interesting to see how Coppola’s indie aesthetic—she’s known for visually dramatic films like Marie Antoinette and Lost in Translation—jives with a movie that is in large part an underwater romance.
Joe Wright (Pride & Prejudice, Anna Karenina, Atonement, Hanna) was originally going to direct but the studio didn't want to wait for him to finish his new movie to do this, so they went to Sofia. It's written by one of the guys who wrote Shame and the woman who wrote Edward Scissorhands, The Nightmare Before Christmas, and Corpse Bride.

sounds interesting, though lets hope it has substance. Usually her longer films don't have that

I love her style of films, so imaging her directing using breathtaking under water visuals perhaps seems quite intriguing.
Joe Wright would've been an interesting choice, considering how I much I loved 'Hanna'.

The Little Mermaid was my favorite Disney film as a child so I'm very for excited for this to say the least. Do we know who will play Ariel?

Just like I was with The Bling Ring news (which ended up being the right reaction because I watched it and had all the substance of a Lifetime movie), I'm not excited to hear this. Everyone is doing these fairytale reboot movies now.

What happened to Fairyland? Now that sounded amazing.

Maybe she's doing this for the paycheck, so that she can then do Fairyland? I also wasn't a big fan of The Bling Ring, though I'm a little more optimistic about The Little Mermaid. Fairyland is what I'm dying to see, though.
