The Lost in Translation director’s seventh feature film stars Bill Murray and Rashida Jones
Sofia Coppola has revealed more details about her upcoming film On The Rocks, which is set to premiere later this year.
The film, which marks the director’s first feature since 2017’s The Beguiled, tells the story of “a young mother (Rashida Jones) who reconnects with her larger-than-life playboy father (Bill Murray) on an adventure through New York”. In an interview with 92Y, Coppola explains that when Jones’ character becomes suspicious of her husband’s beautiful assistant, her dad “gets her paranoid because he’s seeing men through his point of view”.
“It’s the clash between the two generations, and her being a young woman and him a gentleman of another generation,” she said. “It’s the clash of how they look at relationships, and also how your relationship with your parents affects your relationships in your life.”
She added: “We finished a little while ago. It’s the two of them as a father and daughter on a little adventure to spy on her husband. It’s a lot of them talking about life, men, and women over martinis in New York.”
On the Rocks has been picked up by A24, the arthouse production studio behind The Lighthouse, Hereditary, and Uncut Gems. The cast includes Marlon Wayans (White Chicks), Jessica Henwick (Game of Thrones), and comedian Jenny Slate.
