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.
