Funny Or Die Imagines What Sofia Coppola’s Live-Action “The Little Mermaid” Might Look Like

First of all, Sofia Coppola really is directing a live-action film version of "The Little Mermaid." Secondly, I don't think it's going to be that far off from what this Funny or Die spoof -- starring AnnaSofia Robb and Evan Peters -- presents. A melancholy hipster romance, set to great music with lots of late-afternoon su…

Sofia Coppola May Direct A Live-Action “The Little Mermaid”

Sofia Coppola is in talks to direct a live-action adaption of "The Little Mermaid." It's time to dig out the old mermaid tail costumes from "Splash," I guess. [The Hollywood Reporter] So, Miley Cyrus' tour bus burst into flames. Fortunately, no one was hurt. [Page Six] The toy company GoldieBlox has settled a copyright infringement

Of Course Bling Ring Member Alexis Neiers Has Gotten A Book Deal

When thinking about the list of celebrities to play me in a movie of my own life, Emma Watson is pretty close to the top of my list.  Apparently Alexis Neiers — one of the inspirations behind the new film "The Bling Ring," directed by Sofia Coppola — does not feel the same way. The bratty…

Every Day Is One Day Closer To “The Bling Ring” Premiere

I'm not even a Sofia Coppola superfan, but I'm still anxiously awaiting parking my mall-jean-clad butt in a theater seat to watch "The Bling Ring" about the Hollywood teenagers who broke into celebrities' homes and steal their Acne jean. Maybe it's because Coppola actually filmed inside Paris Hilton's weird home with pictures of herself all…

Check Out The First Promotional Photo Of The Cast Of Sofia Coppola’s “The Bling Ring”

"The Bling Ring" has sounded promising since news first relayed that Sofia Coppola would be adapting the story for the silver screen. It goes something like this: a band of spoiled, fame-obsessed Hollywood teenagers break into the homes of stars like Orlando Bloom and Paris Hilton. It's a startling (and, as you'll recall, true) tale…

Quickies: Michele Bachmann Loves White People UPDATE: It’s A Hoax!

Leave it to Rep. Michele Bachmann to yell "Who loves white people?" at a campaign stop. Fortunately, she was only referring to the White People Soul Band, a group that performed there. She probably shouldn't appear with musicians that sound like White Power bands, though. (Just for the record, they're not.) [BuzzFeed] UPDATE: It ha…

Sofia Coppola’s Purple Wedding Wonder

Over the weekend Sofia Coppola married longtime boyfriend and baby daddy Thomas Mars, frontman of the band Phoenix. But rather than go for the traditional white wedding thing, Coppola said "I do" in a lavender Azzedine Alaïa gown, custom-made by the designer. What do you think of her non-traditional look? Would you -- or did…

Let’s Hope Sofia Coppola’s New Movie Isn’t As Boring As Her Louis Vuitton Line

Sofia Coppola's new film, "Somewhere," is set to debut at the Venice Film Festival next week (sorry if you weren't invited—you'll have to wait for the December release date). We're itching to see it because, no matter the story line, Sofia's work is usually a visual playground of nostalgic places, saccharine candy colors, and compelling…

Sofia Coppola To Direct New Dior Fragrance Commercial?

Rumor has it that Sofia Coppola will be directing another Dior fragrance commercial, this time starring Natalie Portman, Dior Parfum's new ambassador. Those of you who obsessed over Coppola's last Dior commercial (above), like we did, will be a little bit thrilled about this news. Coppola and Portman were both spotted filming in Paris over…

Remember When Sofia Coppola Designed Clothes?

Here's a blast from the past—a 1995 interview with Sofia Coppola, back when she was designing her clothing line, Milk Fed. For those of you who don't remember (or if this was before your time!), Ms. Coppola began Milk Fed in 1994, aiming to design simple, affordable pieces with just enough character. From what we…

“Somewhere”: Trailer For The Next Sofia Coppola Movie To Love

The "Lost In Translation", "Marie Antoinette", and "Virgin Suicides" director/screenwriter Sofia Coppola has polished off another gem: "Somewhere." Stephen Dorff plays a disaffected A-list actor, Elle Fanning is his 11-year-old daughter, and Phoenix did the score. Dang, I would have paid $12 to see the trailer alone! Dec. 22 cannot come soon enough.

The final "Twilight " movie, "Breaking Dawn," is still in the beginning stages.

GOOP Worships Sophia, Err, Sofia Coppola!

Dear Gwyneth Paltrow, Even though I sort of can't stand you and think it's annoying that you think your taste is so amazing and your life is so grand as to warrant informing others how they can better their lives, I must admit I look forward to my weekly dose of GOOP. BUT, a toke…

Sofia Coppola Makes Me Want To Soak Myself In Dior Perfume

Sofia Coppola's a busy lady these days. Not only has she been designing bags for Louis Vuitton, but Coppola also directed a commercial for Dior's Miss Dior Cherie fragrance. It has a jealousy inducing I'm-fabulous-and-live-in-Paris-in-the-'60s vibe to it. If this is the kind of life I'd live if I wore the perfume, I'll buy myself…

The Daily Squeeze: Fertility Treatment Discounts And Living In The Anthropologie Catalog

CVS is doing lots of cool things. Not only are they starting to offer higher-end cosmetics, as we told you yesterday, but they're also giving discounts of about 30 percent on fertility treatments to couples struggling with high medication costs because their insurance doesn't cover it. [Reuters] The ad Sofia Coppola directed for Miss Dior…

Sofia Coppola: Daddy’s Girl

The mark of a good dad is his kids, and when you’re Francis Ford Coppola, director of The Godfather trilogy, Apocalypse Now, and our personal favorite, the Michael Jackson Disney World 3D experience, Captain EO, you’ve already set the bar pretty darn high for your children. But if there’s a woman awesome enough to fill…
