Get ready for some dreamy-ass visuals, because Sofia Coppola has started on her first movie since 2013’s The Bling Ring. Focus Features announced today that production is underway on her remake of 1971’s The Beguiled, which starred Clint Eastwood and Geraldine Page. Coppola’s, however, will star Colin Farrell, Nicole Kidman, and two of the director’s previous collaborators: Elle Fanning of The Neon Demon and Kirsten Dunst of nearly everything. The Civil War-set film about a girls’ school and the wounded Union soldier that comes a-calling is set to come out in summer 2017, with a limited release on June 23 that expands June 30. Fanning marked the beginning of filming with an Instagram, via Consequence Of Sound.


Meanwhile, Coppola has also enlisted a bunch of youngster’s Pete’s Dragon’s Oona Laurence, The Nice Guy’s Angourie Rice, Transparent’s Emma Howard, and Addison Reicke of Nickelodeon’s The Thundermans. Coppola’s last project was the Netflix holiday special A Very Murray Christmas. We’re going to bet The Beguiled has less singing, but significantly higher stakes.
