Sofia Coppola has a new movie in the works--and even better, she's collaborating with her brother! Sofia and Roman Coppola are set to produce (as well as co-write, in her case) Fairyland: A Memoir of My Father, based on the book by Alysia Abbott. The coming-of-age story follows a girl growing up in San Francisco in the midst of the AIDS epidemic, and as Sofia puts it, "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. I think it will make an engaging and touching movie on a subject I've never seen before." Two questions: who should star as Abbott? And also, how soon is too soon to start the countdown? (Deadline)
