Perennial Sofia Coppola muse Kirsten Dunst and rocker Gavin Rossdale have been spotted on the L.A. set of the writer-director's currently filming "The Bling Ring." That doesn't mean that the star of "Virgin Suicides" and "Marie Antoinette" or the rhythm guitarist are necessarily in the movie, although Coppola loves throwing cameos into her flicks.

Perennial Sofia Coppola muse Kirsten Dunst and Gavin Rossdale have been spotted on the L.A. set of the writer-director's currently filming "The Bling Ring." That doesn't mean that the star of "Virgin Suicides" and "Marie Antoinette" or rocker Rossdale are necessarily in the movie, although Coppola loves throwing cameos into her flicks.

The cast so far officially includes Emma Watson along with newcomers Israel Broussard and Katie Chang and Taissa Farmiga, Carlos Miranda, Claire Pfister, Georgia Rock and Leslie Mann. Coppola's movie fictionalize the true story of a group of shameless teen thieves who stole nearly $3 million in jewelry, cash, and designer loot from various actors and celebutantes including Orlando Bloom, Audrina Patridge, Rachel Bilson and Paris Hilton back in 2008 and 2009. (TOH's interview with Dunst for "Melancholia" is here.)

The Playlist details a movie (spoiler alert) that promises vicious gossip, fickle fame, manipulation, duplicity, and hard partying, all with a sort of docu-drama feel.
