She made Tokyo's Park Hyatt into a character in "Lost in Translation" and now Sofia Coppola is set to film a movie based in Hollywood's Chateau Marmont. "Somewhere" is about "a bad-boy actor stumbling through a life of excess at the Chateau Marmont," describes Variety.

Coppola said she wanted to make "an intimate story set in contemporary Los Angeles."
