Teenage girl cat burglars... Interested yet? That's the set up of 'The Bling Ring,' Sofia Coppola's latest film (which is based on a true story) about a group of girls who decided to rip off celebrities when they know they're not home. Now there's a new clip that features 'Harry Potter' star Emma Watson pole dancing.
Sofia Coppola has a definitive eye for casting memorable leading ladies, from Scarlett Johansson in ‘Lost in Translation’ to Elle Fanning in the meditative ‘Somewhere.’ So while this next bit of casting news gives me pause, I guess we’ll have to trust Coppola’s track record and prepare to be surprised.
Variety reports 'Harry Potter' star Emma Watson has signed on to star in Sofia Coppola's next film, 'The Bling Ring'. Based on the true story of The Burglar Bunch, a group of wealthy and spoiled Hollywood teens who broke into and robbed the homes of celebrities like Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, and Orlando Bloom, presumably as a result of sensory-overload-induced boredom from all that stuff they already owned.
