And it keeps getting better! Kirsten is teaming up again with Sofia Coppola!
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.
I love it when they work together, they're such a perfect fit and I'm so excited for this!
