American screenwriter, director, producer and actress, Sofia Coppola is working on adapting Alysia Abbott’s Fairyland: A Memoir of My Father for the big screen. The filmmaker, who is recently known for Bling Ring, will write the screenplay with Andrew Durham and produce it with brother Roman Coppola. The memoir tells the story of Abbott and her father, Steve Abbott, a poet and gay activist who was diagnosed with AIDS. "I love the book Fairyland - it's a sweet and unique love story of a girl and her dad, both growing up together in 1970s San Francisco. I think it will make an engaging and touching movie on a subject I've never seen before," said Coppola. Even Abbott is thrilled to see her book come to life. "I'm delighted that Sofia Coppola and Zoetrope are going to create the film version of Fairyland,” She said. “Sofia's understanding of the feminine perspective and the artistic vision that she shares with Andrew Durham make them ideal partners to make this movie. I could not be happier." The film has no release date yet. The memoir, however, came out June 2013 and can be purchased wherever books are sold. http://www.Twitter.com/PopWrapped https://pop-wrapped.tumblr.com http://www.SoundCloud.com/PopWrapped http://www.Facebook.com/PopWrapped http://www.Instagram.com/PopWrapped http://www.Pinterest.com/PopWrapped http://www.YouTube.com/PopWrapped https://pop-wrapped.wordpress.com http://www.PopWrapped.com
