The Bling Ring

While cinephile eyes will be wearily watching the internet early tomorrow morning for the official line up of the Cannes Film Festival, organizers let out a bit of a tease today to tide everyone over. And it will involve one filmmaker making her return to the south of France.

Sofia Coppola will be bringing "The Bling Ring" to Cannes, with the festival announcing that it will open the Un Certain Regard slate at the fest. Cannes is a familiar home for Coppola who unveiled both "The Virgin Suicides" and "Marie Antoinette" previously, and the Un Certain Regard category -- which is usually reserved for edgier or more genre-driven fare -- seems like a good fit for her Emma Watson-starring film about a group of no good kids who steal from celebrities. The movie was long rumored to be part of the slate in one way or another, and this is definitely a nice kick-off to what should be/will hopefully be a killer lineup this year.

"The Hunt" and "Festen" director Thomas Vinterberg will lead the Un Certain Regard jury. The Cannes Film Festival runs from May 15-26. "The Bling Ring" opens on June 14th.
