Sofia Coppola’s New Movie Is Pissing Off New Yorkers

June 19, 2019 / Posted by:

Sofia Coppola‘s new movie On The Rocks better be worth it because Sofia is messing with something so rare and so precious that people in New York are outraged. Sofia is messing with their parking. And hell hath no fury like a New Yorker looking for parking. Sofia is lucky Alec Baldwin hasn’t thrown fists at her in a parking rage.

After The Post first reported that a Soho florist was waging war against Coppola’s in-production film, “On the Rocks” — because the movie was allegedly diverting customers from the shop’s doors — Page Six has learned that the same film pissed off another neighborhood by posting “No parking” signs for blocks, then never showed up to shoot after residents gave up their prized parking spots.

Taking precious parking spots and then not showing up to film is so rude and so wrong. And I’m actually a little scared for her as I’m pretty sure a Manhattan parking space is worth more than my life.

While neighborhood movie shoots can always make parking a pain, this production found a way to amplify the ire of locals.

“Not a soul showed up [to film],” said a flustered West Village person. “Everyone in the neighborhood was pissed, because people moved their cars.”

“You could hear people on the street asking why they had to move their cars if there was no movie,” said our source. “It’s a busy area on the weekend because of the High Line and Hudson Yards, so finding parking was a nightmare since they roped off so many streets Saturday and Sunday.”

Sofia’s new movie stars Bill Murray and Rashida Jones and there’s no word on why no one showed up to film, but my bet guess is it has something to with diva Bill Murray acting like a diva. Maybe he spotted someone with a camera and went on a smashing spree. Or he was off in Sweden drunk driving a golf cart and forgot about filming.

Either way SoHo florist Julia Testa was not about to be bullied by Mr. Scrooge and his dumb movie making.

Earlier this month, Soho florist Julia Testa claimed that the movie’s set was threatening to disrupt her business. She put up a giant pink sign that read, “Movie shoots kill small business. Come in, we’re open!” plus a message to shoppers who were allegedly diverted around the shoot: “Don’t let them bully you — you’re allowed to walk past.”

Hopefully filming will start soon and end sooner and Sofia can return to Los Angeles and start working on the only thing that really matters, a follow up to Bling Ring called Bling Ring 2: Electric LittleBebeShoesaloo.

I need more Alexis Neiers screaming into a phone and less angry florist in my life.
