Sofia Coppola will marry long-term boyfriend Thomas Mars – who is the lead singer of band Phoenix – this summer.

The ‘Somewhere’ director will honour her Italian roots and is planning to tie the knot at father Francis Ford Coppola’s 19th century villa, Palazzo Margherita, in Bernalda, Italy. The ‘Godfather’ director Francis Ford is currently rebuilding and renovating the property for the nuptials.

Sofia, 40, and rocker Thomas, 34, already have two children together, Romy, four, and 12-month-old Cosima.

This will be the second marriage for Sofia as she was once married to fellow director Spike Jonze, who she divorced in 2003.
