The last we heard from Sofia Coppola, she dropped out of the director’s chair for Universal Pictures and Working Title Film’s live-action adaptation of Han Christian Anderson’s fairy tale “The Little Mermaid” due to creative differences.
Now, a new report has emerged online, suggesting that she will reunite with German-American actress Kirsten Dunst for a new untitled film.
According to The Playlist, Town & Country recently had an interview with Dunst, who will be seen next in the 2nd season of FX’s “Fargo“. While there’s no direct quote from the actress, Town & Country noted that the star stated that “there’s also talks of a 3rd film with Sofia Coppola in 2016”.
If the report is true, the movie will mark their 3rd time working together as Dunst previously starred in Coppola’s 1999 film “The Virgin Suicides” and 2006’s “Marie Antoinette”.
The Playlist did some guesswork and stated that Dunst might be talking about the film adaptation of Alysia Abbott’s “Fairyland: A Memoir of My Father”. According to The Playlist, the film tells the true story of a daughter and her bisexual father in San Francisco, their relationship, and the onset of the AIDS crisis. It was revealed that Coppola signed up to co-write the movie with Andrew Durham (who produced Coppola’s debut short “Lick The Star”) back in 2013.
However, there’s no indication on whether she will direct it as well.
Coppola has been staying behind the camera since the release of her 2013 film, “The Bling Ring”. The only project she has coming up is “A Very Murray Christmas”, a Netflix Christmas special starring her “Lost in Translation” lead Bill Murray.
In addition to “Fargo” season 2, Dunst will be seen next on the big screen in Jeff Nichols’s “Midnight Special”, which opens on 18th March 2016.
