The writer-director who shot her "Lost in Translation" at the Park Hyatt in Tokyo, practically making a character out of the antiseptic structure, will set her next film at the iconic Chateau Marmont in Hollywood.

Stephen Dorff and Elle Fanning will star in the Focus Features dramedy "Somewhere," which Coppola penned.

Story centers on a bad-boy actor stumbling through a life of excess at the Chateau Marmont. With an unexpected visit from his 11-year-old daughter, he is forced to reexamine his life.

The filmmaker, who said she has been looking to make "an intimate story set in contemporary Los Angeles," received permission to shoot at the hotel, which has become notorious in recent years as a popular address for tabloid-friendly celebs. Film will lense in L.A. and Italy in June and July. Variety

SAN DIEGO- On April 25th, Invisible Children, a media-based organization dedicated to ending Africa’s longest-running war is going global for their third and largest Awareness Event to date: a 100-city, nine country rally called the RESCUE, to demand attention for the plight of children abducted and forced to fight as soldiers in the Lord’s Resistance Army, terrorizing Central East Africa over the last two decades.

For 23 years, the region has been consumed by conflict. Despite a ceasefire called between the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) and Ugandan government, efforts toward peace were stalled on several occasions by Kony’s refusal to sign the final peace agreement. In early 2009, the Ugandan government and surrounding countries launched a military operation intended to defeat the LRA and capture the rebel leader. The LRA retaliated by murdering and displacing thousands of civilians, while abducting hundreds of children to fight amongst its ranks. A war originally contained within Uganda’s borders has now evolved into a widespread regional crisis, prompting massive international attention.

The RESCUE is a radically unique event, unlike Invisible Children’s previous events ‘Global Night Commute’ and ‘Displace Me’ that had 150 000 collectively sleeping in the streets across the country for the displaced people of northern Uganda. The RESCUE requires participants to ‘abduct themselves for the abducted’. Thousands of people will travel by foot to a location in each city that will become their ‘LRA’ base, where they will refuse to leave until a senator, politician or public figure ‘RESCUES’ them by making a public statement on behalf of child soldiers.
