As much as I love seeing Emma Watson on screen, I’m going to be clutching my valuables quite tightly if I’m ever around her, as the actress is signing up for the new Sophia Coppola film, The Bling Ring, which will see her trade in her goodie goodie image for a criminla record.
Set in London in 2009, The Bling Ring is the story of a group of teenage girls who raided and stole from several celebrities, such as Orlando Bloom, Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan, paying close attention to any jewllery that was present in magazine and TV shoots.
The girls were eventually arrested, but the kicker comes in from the fact that they were all from affluent and prestigious homes, who had become obsessed with the lifestyles of the rich and the famous.
“I’m excited about the young cast we’re assembling and I’m looking forward to shooting on location here in Los Angeles,” Coppola told Variety, although she didn’t specify who else was up for a role.
Watson has been busy as of late, acting in My week with Marilyn, and getting ready to star in The perks of being a wallflower, while also attending classes.
