emma watson sofia coppola working on film.jpgTwo of my favourite peoples are teaming up for a new film titled The Bling Ring. Emma Watson has been cast in the movie which will be written and directed by Sofia Coppola.

The Harry Potter actress will star in the film based on the true story about a group of teenagers who went on a string of celebrity burglaries. You may recall when Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan were among the targets of the star-obsessed thieves back in 2008-2009.

"I'm excited about the young cast we're assembling and I'm looking forward to shooting on location here in Los Angeles," Coppola said.

The director is renowned for giving her young leading ladies a chance to break-out into more adult, off-beat roles, e.g. Kirsten Dunst in The Virgin Suicides, Scarlett Johansson in Lost in Translation and more recently, Elle Fanning in Somewhere. Will this be the flick to deliver the role meaty enough for Emma to sink her teeth into? We shall see...
