Sofia Coppola explored Hollywood's storied Chateau Marmont last year for Somewhere, but her film used the hotel as a setting for glamorous ennui, not as the subject of the movie itself. John Krasinski and Aaron Sorkin hope to change that with a new decades-spanning HBO mini-series about the Chateau that Sorkin will script based on the book Life at the Marmont. "I almost feel [the Chateau is] my extended living room," Krasinski told Deadline. Party at Krasinski's living room, everybody! [Deadline]
