The story follows the life of Alysia and her father, Steve Abbott, a widowed poet and gay activist, who dies from AIDS.
Sofia said: ''I love the book 'Fairyland' - it's a sweet and unique love story of a girl and her dad, both growing up together in 1970s San Francisco. I think it will make an engaging and touching movie on a subject I've never seen before.''
Alysia added: ''I'm delighted that Sofia Coppola and Zoetrope are going to create the film version of 'Fairyland'.
''Sofia's understanding of the feminine perspective and the artistic vision that she shares with Andrew Durham make them ideal partners to make this movie. I could not be happier.''
