This year Sofia Coppola turned in The Bling Ring, a more upscale version of Spring Breakers, but simply based on real-life events of spoiled, despicable teenagers. Sadly the film wasn't quite as good as the aforementioned film from Harmony Korine, in large part to a performance from James Franco. Now Coppola is going in a completely different direction with an adaptation of Fairyland, an adaptation of Alysia Abbott's memoir of the same name. Coppola will co-write the adaptation with Andrew Durham, a photographer who has frequently worked with Coppola. However, Coppola isn't attached to direct just yet. Here's the official synopsis for the book: After his wife dies in a car accident, bisexual writer and activist Steve Abbott moves with his two-year-old daughter to San Francisco. There they discover a city in the midst of revolution, bustling with gay men in search of liberation—few of whom are raising a child. »
