The 'Bling Ring' filmmaker will team up with Andrew Durham to pen the script for the film version of Alysia Abbott's memoir, after American Zoetrope acquired the screen rights to the tale.
The 42-year-old screenwriter is set to produce the movie, which is set in the 1970s and 80s San Francisco, before and after the AIDS epidemic, alongside her brother Roman Coppola
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.''
The book was published by W. W. Norton & Co last June.
