The Bling Ring
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.
If there will ever be a textbook titled "How to Keep Your Career Alive and Well After Starring in the Harry Potter Series,' Emma Watson will probably be the one to write it. After being a highlight in the wonderful 'The Perks of Being a Wallflower,' the former Hermione Granger will soon be seen in Sofia Coppola's 'The Bling Ring.' You can check out some new photos from the film below.
It may be a little early to start contemplating what some of your most anticipated movies of next year will be, but one of the films you should keep your eyes out for is Sofia Coppola's 'The Bling Ring.' Not only is the imaginative director pushing her limits but an actress from the 'Harry Potter' realm is as well.
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.
