Sofia Coppola Heads Up ‘Marie-Antoinette’
LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) – Sofia Coppola is going in for some more translation work.
The Academy Award-winning writer/director of “Lost in Translation” is studying up on her French history for her next project, “Marie-Antoinette,” starring Kirsten Dunst as the ill-fated French queen and Jason Schwartzman as her husband, Louis XVI. Both lost their heads during the French Revolution.
The Columbia Pictures project, which Coppola will write and direct, is described as a stylized account of the enigmatic royal. Production is scheduled to begin in February in France.
“I’ve always loved the story of Marie Antoinette and the decadence of Versailles on the brink of revolution,” Coppola said, “and the fact she was just a teenager when circumstances forced her to play a significant role in history.”
Dunst, who starred in Coppola’s first film, “The Virgin Suicides,” most recently appeared in “Spider-Man 2.” Her upcoming features include “Wimbledon” and Cameron Crowe’s drama “Elizabethtown.”
Schwartzman made his film debut in Wes Anderson’s “Rushmore” and is set to begin filming Columbia’s “Bewitched” with Nicole Kidman and Will Ferrell. He and Coppola are cousins and both appeared in her brother Roman’s drama “CQ.”
