Oscar-winning filmmaker Sofia Coppola is teaming up with her brother Roman to produce a movie version of Alysia Abbott’s ‘Fairyland: A Memoir of My Father’.
The ‘Lost in Translation’ director will co-write the screenplay with frequent collaborator Andrew Durham.
The coming-of-age story is set against the backdrop of San
Francisco’s cultural scene in the 1970s and ’80s,before and after the AIDS epidemic,which would later claim the life of Abbott’s father,reported Variety.
“I love the book ‘Fairyland’; it’s a sweet and unique love story of a girl and her dad,both growing up together in 1970’s San Francisco. I think it will make an engaging and touching movie on a subject I’ve never seen before,” Sofia said.
The director’s most recent work was directing true-story ‘The Bling Ring’.
