This will be the first production under the partnership of A24 and Apple, which was announced in 2018 as a "multi-year deal" between the two companies. On The Rocks will be the first film produced by the partnership.

According to Variety, Coppola will direct On The Rocks from a script she wrote, and will produce along with Youree Henley.

The outlet goes on to say that film will reportedly follow "a young mother who reconnects with her larger-than-life playboy father on an adventure through New York."

The pair famously worked together previously on 2003's Lost In Translation, garnering 4 Oscar nominations (including best Actor for Murray), and 1 win for Coppola for her original screenplay.
