Sofia Coppola

Planning a Movie

About The Burglar Bunch

Sofia Coppola is once again casting her lens on Hollywood -- but she's not focusing on movie stars this time, but rather the people who stole from them!

According to our sources, Coppola is developing a film based on the infamous Burglar Bunch. We're told the film, which would be produced by daddy Francis' Zoetrope studio, does not have a start date or even a script yet.

Sources close to the project tell TMZ ... producers approached Burgler Buncher Nick Prugo about being a consultant on the film, but he declined. We're told Tess Taylor, sister of Buncher Alexis Neiers, has now signed on to the project.

Calls to Coppola were not returned.

Lindsay could get a part in this, she was a victim, but then again, she's always a victim if you listen to her or her mom, Orange Oprah!

Truth    

INNERESTING... SOPHIA COPPOLA DID GET 3 OSCAR NOM'S FOR "LOST IN TRANSLATION" BUT ENDED UP WINNING FOR BEST SCREENPLAY ONLY. SHE IS THE YOUNGEST DIRECTOR UP FOR BEST DIRECTING OSCAR. THIS WOULD BE ANOTHER ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY (BASED ON POLICE REPORTS), LOL. YEP, HER WHOLE CAREER IS BASED ON NEPOTISM FROM HER DADDY FRANCIS FORD COPPOLA. EVERY ONE OF HER FLICKS ARE DADDY PRODUCED/CO-PRODUCED. EVERY ONE OF HER TERRIBLE "ACTRESS" ROLES WERE IN DADDY'S FILMS. AS LONG AS SHE IS BEHIND THE CAMERA, SHE'S OK... THIS MIGHT NOT BE THAT LAME AS WE THINK. TRUTH!!

Isn't THAT interesting... Tess Taylor signed on to be the consultant? Tess, the one that did NOT get charged, yet was in almost half the pictures in TMZ's own photo gallery of the "bunch", while Alexis was not?
And I was really hoping if they make this film the people involved would not profit in any way - seems like that's not going to happen though.
SHAME ON SOFIA. Hope it bombs.

Oh and TMZ you can quit calling the piece of trash known as Tess Taylor, Alexis' "SISTER" - they are not related in any way and don't even speak. Tess is the heroin junkie, Alexis has been in rehab for like a year.

Tess is not Alexis's sister, they are full of crap when they say that. Get your facts straight TMZ!

Of course Tess Taylor would sign on to the project.

She has a major heroin addiction . . . needs to fuel that problem.
