We’re eagerly anticipating Sofia Coppola’s The Bling Ring starring Emma Watson. It’s been a while since we’ve seen any real promotional material from the film – seven months, in fact – but today two new stills appeared.
French magazine Premiere offered up these two full page pics and touts a June 2013 premiere date, even though this timeframe has not been formally announced.
The Bling Ring is based off of actual events where Miss Neiers and her fellow fame-obsessed teenagers used the Internet to track celebrities’ whereabouts in order to rob their homes. Some of the victims included Orlando Bloom, Lindsay Lohan and Rachel Bilson.
We’ll be covering this film closely as it approaches its release. We’re excited to see Watson in this thievery role, both written and helmed by Coppola. Other cast members include Leslie Mann (Nicki’s mother), Taissa Farmiga (Sam), Erin Daniels (Shannon), Gavin Rossdale (Ricky), and Stacy Edwards (Debbie).
See our report from May when Watson tweeted a photo of herself on set and in the role of Nicki. The actress is set to return to Brown University following a temporary leave to focus on her filming career. Since making her decision she’s shot numerous films including Darren Aronofsky’s Noah and handled publicity for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 and The Perks of Being a Wallflower.
Thanks, Snitch Seeker.
