Gia Coppola is set to direct a forthcoming documentary titled superfans: screaming. crying. throwing up., as Deadline reports. The project is based on the 2020 book Larger Than Life: A History of Boy Bands from NKOTB to BTS by journalist and Pitchfork contributor Maria Sherman. Coppola will co-produce the project along with Jason Bateman’s production company Aggregate Films.
Coppola’s last feature-length project was 2020’s Mainstream, a comedy-drama starring Andrew Garfield and Maya Hawke. Prior to that, she’d directed a handful of music videos: Yves Tumor’s “Applaud,” Blood Orange’s “You’re Not Good Enough,” plus Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Cut to the Feeling” and “Your Type.”
