The American Dream - Sofia Coppola (2008)


Recommended Posts

Sofia Coppola has already signed on to her next directorial project. The movie is called THE AMERICAN DREAM and it stars Colin Hanks and Bryce Dallas Howard as a young couple who immigrate to the United States from Poland in the late 1800s to persue their dreams of success. Coincidently, the movie is to be produced by a Tom, a Ron, and a Francis Ford, a powerhouse trio that doubles as the fathers of the stars and director. I surely am not accusing anyone of nepotism because I'm a fan of everyone involved and I don't doubt their talent and appropriateness for the project, but it's kind of funny that Hanks and Howard are playing a couple who have a hard time making a living because of Tammany Hall's corrupt system, which rewards friends and relatives of those with power with the most lucrative jobs.


The movie is to be distributed by Universal which, on a related note (pun intended), has also signed a deal with Francis Ford Coppola to direct, Ron Howard to produce, and Tom Hanks to star in NOAH'S ARK, a film to be released in the summer of 2008. Francis also has YOUTH WITHOUT YOUTH on his directing plate and is set to produce THE GOOD SHEPARD and an adaptation of Jack Kerouac's ON THE ROAD.
