Details on the "The Bling Ring" script [Apr. 6th, 2012|01:47 am]
I ♥ Sofia

[Tags|, ]



While most of us on staff were far from fans of Sofia Coppola's last picture "Somewhere" (a film that does have its defenders, nevertheless), the filmmaker is so gifted, and has enough goodwill from her earlier efforts, that we're more than happy to follow her wherever she's going. And in the last few weeks, filming got underway on her latest, "The Bling Ring."

For the first time, Coppola's covering a contemporary true-life story, telling the tale of the so-called Bling Ring, or the Hollywood Hills Burglar Bunch, a group of L.A. teens who stole as much as $3 million worth of jewelery, cash and designer goods from the houses of celebrities like Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom, Audrina Partridge and Rachel Bilson back in 2008 and 2009.

Kirsten Dunst Hits The Set Of Sofia Coppola's 'The Bling Ring' [Mar. 30th, 2012|10:06 pm]
I ♥ Sofia

emmehhh

After Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale was spotted on the set of Sofia Coppola's "The Bling Ring," likely playing a club-promoter cohort of the titular group of teens, set photos today reveal former Coppola muse Kirsten Dunst ("The Virgin Suicides," "Marie Antoinette") on set withEmma Watson and, judging by her attire, we'd say it looks like more than just a simple set visit.

Dunst herself wasn't one of the real-life group's targets in 2008 and 2009 so it remains to be seen what role she could play or whether she'll in fact feature as herself. Either way, we're sure Coppola will have no trouble fitting her into the story of celeb-obsessed teens who stole as much as $3m worth of jewellery, cash and designer goods from a coterie of famous faces of Dunst's generation, including  Paris HiltonOrlando Bloom, Audrina Partridge and Rachel Bilson.

Newcomers Israel Broussard and Katie Chang lead the cast that includes Watson, »

Photos of a Suite Sofia helped design at the Coppola's Palazzo Margherita hotel [Mar. 5th, 2012|01:10 pm]
I ♥ Sofia

jamesinthesky
Jacques Grange designed this suite at the Coppola's Palazzo Margherita hotel with help from Sofia. I guess Francis Ford Coppola wanted family members to influence the style and make it a place they'd like to stay themselves. Roman Coppola helped design one as well. In Vanity Fair, Sofia said this is her favorite hotel in the world.

the room is described thus: "its mood is delicate and feminine, with hand-painted frescos evoking a misty summer garden at dawn. A Juliette balcony off the bedroom overlooks the courtyard and the palatial bathroom has a steam shower with a clawfoot bathtub. French doors from the bathroom and bedroom lead to a fully-furnished private terrace that offers a magical view of the garden and fountain. "

Emma Watson in New SC film.... [Mar. 2nd, 2012|08:38 pm]
I ♥ Sofia

emmehhh
http://www.guardian.co.uk/film/2012/mar/01/emma-watson-sofia-coppola-film

"Harry Potter star Emma Watson has signed up for Sofia Coppola's new film, The Bling Ring, as she attempts to transition away from the kidult-fantasy genre series that made her name.

Coppola, whose last film Somewhere was awarded the Golden Lion at the Venice film festival, is planning to adapt the real-life story of a group of fame-obsessed teen burglars who broke into celebrities' homes in Los Angeles. The film's producers say it will "reveal a sobering view of our modern culture".

Since finishing the Potter films, Watson has been seen in a small role as a costume assistant in My Week With Marilyn, and is currently working on the college-life US indie, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, written and directed by Stephen Chbosky. She is next due to act in Your Voice in My Head, based on the memoir by journalist Emma Forrest, where she will be reunited with by regular Potter director David Yates."

Show us your Medicine Cabinet! [Feb. 21st, 2012|01:12 pm]

I love the photograph of Sofia's Medicine Cabinet she took for French Vogue some years back, it's one of my most treasured magazines and it's falling apart from all the times I've flipped through it. I thought it would be fun to snap a picture of my medicine cabinet to share as a little project - maybe we could all share? No where as nice and extensive as Sofia's but here it is :)

A few of my favorites - Sephora's Cream Lip Stain in 'Really Red', Aveda's Sun Care Hair Spray (it smells like Neroli), My Nars lipsticks and a few of Kate Moss's Rimmel Lip colors are great!, lots of Clinique (classic and dependable), Mario Badescu Pink Drying Lotion, Korres Anti Aging Quercetin and Oak Primer and Bumble and Bumble texture cream :)

For some reason the image can't be seen here, I'm sorry :(
Here is the link just scroll down to center
From a Japanese Magazine called 'Relax for Girls' - thought this was lovely and earthy. via thisisnaive

On another note, I've been a member of this community for years now and still visit often although I don't post as frequently as I used to. I'm glad it's still here and hope that Sofia continues to bring us all back for years and years - I know she has more simple and quiet sensibilities and really keeps to herself ( that's what we all love about her) but I can't help but wonder what her reactions would be if she were to ever stumble upon this humble livejournal of ours. I think she would approve :)

Just a couple videos I felt like sharing. This first one is an interview with Elle Fanning by Eleanor Coppola, talking about Somewhere and her relationship with Stephen Dorff. I hadn't seen this before today, and I think this is very insightful. What I like about Somewhere is the believable relationship between Cleo and her father. Though Sofia's set was somewhat 'relaxed' as Elle always described her, the evidence of a genuine relationship between the actors can be found in the film.



This second video is another interview with Elle Fanning, this time a Lynn Hirschberg Screen Test (her second so far). She talks about Paris, the making of Super 8 and how Somewhere changed her life.

So, Sofia is selling her NY loft:

And has just bought a beautiful townhouse in the West Village, with a huge garden:

Real estate news aside, the most interesting quote was:

"A spokesman for Ms. Coppola confirmed that the sale had taken place but said that she was in Los Angeles working on a new film, and was unavailable for comment."

  • New producer for "The Bling Ring" (gag me at this idea)

http://www.variety.com/article/VR1118050201

Agency booked co-producer Darren Demetre on Sofia Coppola's "The Bling Ring," (For those who didn't see it, this project leaked on TMZ a couple of months ago and a script has yet to be written)
  •  Sofia has been lunching with Robert Pattinson with th hope that he'll work with her on a new comedy/drama:

http://www.hollywoodlife.com/2012/02/10/sophia-coppola-rob-pattinson/

Director Sofia Coppola, 40, thinks Twilight star Rob Pattinson, 25, should lighten his choice of roles with a quirky romance dramedy.

“Sofia has wanted to work with Rob for a long time,” a movie exec tells HollywoodLife.com. “She thinks he would be great in a movie similar to Lost in Translation.”

And apparently, Sofia believes Rob could be her next muse to resurrect her own career. (Um, what?)

“She is actually hoping to make a comeback with Rob. They have met a few times to discuss the project,” continues the source. “Sofia wants to write and direct the film but wants Rob to be involved as much as possible. She thinks Rob has a magnificent sense of humor and wants to show it off. She wants to show everyone his quirky, eccentric self.”

  • What happened to Goldengrove and the young girl that Sofia was casting from Australia, Olivia DeJonge? She auditioned in November (before the Bling Ring script had even been started) and Sofia is supposed to be in LA working on a film now...

sorry about the quality (crappy cell-phone snap), but here's a photo of Sofia Coppola's feature in Vanity Fair's annual Hollywood issue where she talks about her favorite things. I don't have a scanner in my dorm to scan it, but someone will hopefully scan it soon and you can see an HQ version. In the meantime, here's a grainy one, but you should still be able to read the text.

ROBERT MAPPLETHORPE CURATED BY SOFIA COPPOLA [Nov. 26th, 2011|03:01 pm]
I ♥ Sofia

xxcvii


Gallery owner Thaddaeus Ropac on giving the filmmaker free reins to show her perspective on the legendary photographer

Following collaborations with Hedi Slimane and Robert Wilson, gallery owner and curator Thaddaeus Ropac has invited filmmaker Sofia Coppola to be the latest creative visionary to interpret the work of Robert Mapplethorpe. Through this collaboration, a unique re-examining of Mapplethorpe’s photography will bring to light new themes and exciting, undiscovered perspectives. Ropac was one of the first curators to exhibit Mapplethorpe’s underground and controversial photography in the early 1980s and formed a friendship with the cult photographer.

Now the gallery owner, who also helped start the careers of other experimental New York artists such as Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring, is handing over the reins to other artists to present their take on one of the 20th Century’s most iconic artists. The latest in the series of Mapplethorpe takeovers sees the award winning director Sofia Coppola take the helm and present her own perspective, bringing to light some lesser-known images such as his landscape and still life photos. Each artist’s response to Mapplethorpe’s work has brought a fresh new dimension to the artist’s life and photography. We spoke to Thaddaeus Ropac about his latest guest curation and what Mapplethorpe’s legacy means to him.

Dazed Digital: What made you first visit the idea of having one contemporary artist rediscover the body of work of another artist?
Thaddaeus Ropac: Together with the Mapplethorpe Foundation, we decided that one way to look at his work was to ask different personalities from the creative world to curate an exhibition. In 2005, we asked Hedi Slimane to curate a show in our Paris gallery. His own passion for photography brought him close to Mapplethorpe’s aesthetics, allowing him to revisit the work in an intimate manner. In 2006, we asked Robert Wilson to curate an exhibition for the Salzburg gallery; Bob had known Mapplethorpe and shared a close friendship and artistic dialogue. Bob’s show originated from his very unique experience of being photographed by Mapplethorpe, which influenced his selection as it was comprised solely of portraits, offering the viewpoint of someone on the other side of the lens.

DD: What made you choose Sofia Coppola to curate your upcoming exhibition?
Thaddaeus Ropac: When I saw Sofia Coppola’s Lost in Translation, certain images and framing made me think that it could be incredible to bring these two creative universes together.

DD: What aspect of Mapplethorpe’s work is highlighted in this exhibition?

Thaddaeus Ropac: Sofia made her selection of photographs from the Mapplethorpe archives at the Foundation in New York. She has chosen a totally different perspective, one that is probably more contemplative and not so straight on, somehow more intuitive. In fact, the idea of these curated shows is to present Mapplethorpe’s work in a less academic light. She will include many of his still-life flower photographs, but has also selected some lesser-known portraits of children and animals. These will be punctuated by photographs of landscapes, which may recall scenes from a film.

DD: So Sofia brings a cinematic quality to Mapplethorpe’s body of work?
Thaddaeus Ropac: The audience may well read into the selection by seeing a sort of story board develop before them; the work has a narrative quality to it that Sofia emphasizes with her choice of images.

DD: The images chosen are black and white, still lifes, landscapes, and of women, not what Mapplethorpe is most famed for; do you think presenting this side of Mapplethorpe’s work is Coppola’s attempt to show a different side of Mapplethorpe, to mark her own stance on the artist, or simply her own personal vision coming through?
Thaddaeus Ropac: Mapplethorpe’s work implies a certain sexual aesthetic that Sofia Coppola has chosen not to present in this show, so she will definitely show a different side to the artist’s work through her selection, which will go beyond the obvious.

Do you think the images will evoke more of Coppola or Mapplethorpe’s characters?
Thaddaeus Ropac: I believe both personalities will be present in the exhibition. Of course, the selection is very personal and will reveal Sofia's personality through her aesthetic choices.

DD: How do you think the two artists’ work relate to one another?
Thaddaeus Ropac: There is not an obvious relationship between their work, but this is exactly what we are interested in because we believe something more challenging can come out of this project.

DD: It’s a brilliant way to get a fresh perspective on such a well-known artist; are you hoping to change people’s perception of Mapplethorpe’s legacy?
Thaddaeus Ropac: Of course, we expect this. It is a challenge and from the experience of previous shows, curated by Hedi Slimane and Robert Wilson, we can confirm that they were highly successful, surprising the public and even specialized art audiences who know Mapplethorpe’s work very well. We are already getting a lot of good reactions from people, even before the opening!

DD: How do you feel about Mapplethorpe’s legacy nearly 30 years after you first showcased his work?
Thaddaeus Ropac: I was very proud to show his work in Salzburg in the 80s. Mapplethorpe’s career underwent an incredible transformation from the Robert Mapplethorpe I met back then, whose work was very underground, to his first photographs being purchased by an important museum as the Guggenheim, to being considered an artist who largely contributed to positioning photography as an art form in its own right and, ultimately, to becoming one of the major artists of the 20th century.

Robert Mapplethorpe, Curated by Sofia Coppola, Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac, Paris, November 25, 2011 – January 7, 2012
