Coppola to immortalise the Chateau Marmont in movie
Steven Dorff has signed to star as a famous actor, living in the hotel, who is forced to raise his 11-year-old daughter when she appears in his life.
Dakota Fanning's sister Elle is in talks to play Dorff's daughter.
According to Daily Variety, Coppola has been given permission to shoot the movie in the Sunset Boulevard hotel.
The Chateau Marmont has been home to a number of Hollywood legends; comedian John Belushi died from a drug overdose during a 1982 stay there, and it was the location of Lindsay Lohan's recent bust-up with ex-girlfriend Samantha Ronson.
