Marie-Antoinette: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sofia Coppola is going in for some more translation work. The director, who received an Academy Award nomination for last year's Lost in Translation, is studying up on her French history for her next project, Marie-Antoinette, which she will write and direct for Columbia Pictures.

Kirsten Dunst, who starred in Coppola's first film, The Virgin Suicides, is attached to play the title role of the French queen, with Jason Schwartzman portraying Louis XVI.

Production is scheduled to begin in February in France.
