A24 has picked up Sofia Coppola's "The Bling Ring," with plans to release the film theatrically in June. "The Bling Ring" stars Emma Watson and newcomers Israel Broussard, Katie Chang, Claire Julian and Taissa Farmiga (Vera's younger sister) as a group of restless teens who loot the homes of celebrities for kicks.

Leslie Mann, Gavin Rossdale and real-life Bling Ring victim Paris Hilton also star.

The film is based on the Vanity Fair article "The Suspects Wore Louboutins," by Nancy Jo Sales, and depicts a period from 2008 through late 2009 when the group was operating and stole over $3 million in goods.

A24 states that film is "undeniably fun and incredibly stylistic," and that they are "thrilled to be working with Coppola."
