Sofia Coppola Would Have Liked To Direct The First ‘Twilight


There is no follow up project on Coppola’s agenda after “Somewhere,” but she raised some eyebrows among the hipster set when she put her name in the pool to direct “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn,” a project that eventually went to fellow Academy Award winner Bill Condon. When I asked Coppola if that was the type of Hollywood studio picture she was interested in directing she sort of sidestepped the question, but she did explain her interest in the series.

“When I saw the first one I was really impressed with the performances by Rob and Kristen – that they were so good to take the material seriously. They weren’t treating it lightly as a kid thing. And I like things for young people and my friend’s teenage daughter put me on the book and I’m a big romantic, too. I love the romantic aspect of it,” Coppola says. “So yeah, I like doing things for a young audience and usually things for kids aren’t made in that way. I thought it would have been exciting to do the first one where [their relationship was established].”

“Twilight” directed by a Coppola? Now that would have been something to see.
