Sofia Coppola's Next Movie Set in Chateau Marmont
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. "With an unexpected visit from his 11-year-old daughter, he is forced to reexamine his life."
Coppola said she wanted to make "an intimate story set in contemporary Los Angeles."
The hotel is know for "tabloid-friendly celebs," notes the trade, but we've known it for its ghost stories.
