Emma Watson Cast in Sofia Coppola's Bling Ring
02.29.12 by REELZ
Forget the rule-following Hermione Granger. Emma Watson has just been cast to star in Sofia Coppola's upcoming Bling Ring, which tells the true-life story of a group of fashion and fame–obsessed teens who broke into the homes of celebrities. Coppola will be writing and directing the movie, as well as producing with Roman Coppola and Youree Henley. Production is scheduled for this spring in Los Angeles.
While Watson has said she wants to dedicate more time to her studies post Harry Potter, she's been quite busy. Waston's recently made an appearance in My Week with Marilyn and wrapped production on The Perks of Being a Wallflower. She is also in talks for David Yates' Your Voice in My Head.
