While we were treated to her pitch-perfect holiday special A Very Murray Christmas fairly recently, it’s still been three long years since the last feature film from Sofia Coppola. Thankfully, it looks like we won’t have to wait much longer as her next film has been unveiled.

With the original directed by Don Siegel, it followed a Civil War soldier who gets rescued by a young girl from an all-female boarding school as jealousy and betrayal rise up as he recovers.

Following her backing away from the Chloe Moretz-led live-action "The Little Mermaid," Sofia Coppola has found her next film - she'll write and direct a new take on the 1971 Clint Eastwood-led period drama "The Beguiled".
Based on Thomas P. Cullinan's Southern Gothic novel and set at the end of the U.S. civil war, the original Don Siegel-directed film followed an injured Yankee soldier rescued from death by a young student at an all-girl boarding school in Louisiana.
At first the all-female staff and pupils are scared, but as he starts to recover he charms them one by one and the sexually repressed atmosphere becomes filled with jealousy and deceit. He soon gets his comeuppance in a quite painful way.
