Sofia Coppola to Write, Direct Remake of Clint Eastwood Drama ‘The Beguiled’

29 March 2016 8:46 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sofia Coppola will write and direct a remake of “The Beguiled,” the 1971 drama that starred Clint Eastwood, an individual familiar with the deal told Variety.

Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst and Elle Fanning are in talks to star in the film.

The original story followed an injured Confederate soldier (plated by Eastwood) who found refuge at an all-girls boarding school during the Civil War and conned his way into several lonely women’s hearts.

Youree Henley (“The Bling Ring,” “Somewhere”) is on board to produce.

This would mark a reunion for Coppola and Fanning, who starred in the filmmaker’s drama “Somewhere.” Coppola is also a frequent collaborator with Dunst, who has appeared in a handful of her films, including “Marie Antoinette.”

Coppola is represented as a screenwriter by ICM Partners. Fanning is repped by Wme and Echo Lake Entertainment, Kidman by CAA and Geyer Kosinski’s Media Talent Group, and »

Sofia Coppola to Remake ‘The Beguiled’ With Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, and Elle Fanning

29 March 2016 6:59 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

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. After developing — then ultimately dropping — a big-budget remake of The Little Mermaid for Universal, this one sounds far more compelling.

According to The Wrap, she’s set to write and direct a remake of Clint Eastwood‘s early-70s drama The Beguiled. 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. While the male lead has yet to be cast, Coppola will be reteaming with some familiar faces as Elle Fanning, Nicole Kidman and Kirsten Dunst »

Coppola Remaking Eastwood's "Beguiled"

29 March 2016 1:55 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

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.

Elle Fanning is on board to play a student, Nicole Kidman will play the head mistress, and Kirsten Dunst to play one of the instructors. The key »
