The Bling Ring
Director: Sofia Coppola
Stars: Emma Watson, Leslie Mann, Taissa Farmiga, Erin Daniels, Nina Siemaszko, Gavin Rossdale, Stacy Edwards
Release date: To be determined
From October 2008 through August 2009, a group of crafty teenagers (known as "The Burglar Bunch," the "Hollywood Hills Burglars," and the "Bling Ring") made a name for themselves robbing the homes of celebrities, reportedly accumulating upwards of $3 million in the process. Their victims included Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom, Megan Fox, Lindsay Lohan, and Rachel Bilson.
It's one hell of a news story, and now, thanks to Sofia Coppola (The Virgin Suicides, Lost in Translation), it's a feature film starring Harry Potter-alum Emma Watson in a role that should decimate all of those sweetie-pie Hermione implications. After her nuanced performance in last year's The Perks of Being a Wallflower, there's little doubt about whether she'll be able to do it or not.
