Sofia Coppola is a long-term "fan" of Nicole Kidman.
The 46-year-old director - who is the daughter of filmmaking icon Frances Ford Coppola - cast the actress in her new movie 'The Beguiled', and has said she wrote the role of the headmistress with Nicole in mind as she didn't want to work with anyone else.
Sofia Coppola wanted to make Colin Farrell the "thinking-woman's hunk" in 'The Beguiled'.
The Academy Award-winning director made a conscious effort to objectify a man in the new drama movie and Sofia thinks Colin, who stars as Corporal John McBurney, a solider during the American Civil War, is perfectly suited to the role.

Movie review: Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst deliver stories of survival in ‘The Beguiled’
The visual of the Deep South is unmistakable in the opening shot of "The Beguiled," as a long road winds to a large mansion beneath giant oaks with hanging Spanish moss.
We can hear cicadas singing, creating a soundtrack that is natural and peaceful. But that sound proves deceptive.
Another sound is present in the distance, faint but distinctive: It is cannons firing. A Civil War battle is being fought nearby.
