Here is A24's statement about working with Coppola:
Sofia Coppola is an iconic American filmmaker and she has focused her distinctive style and uncanny ability to capture the zeitgeist in THE BLING RING. We are thrilled to be working with her and look forward to bringing her undeniably fun and incredibly stylistic film to audiences nationwide.
The film, directed, written and produced by Coppola, stars Emma Watson, Taissa Farmiga (who was great in season one of American Horror Story) and newbies Israel Broussard, Katie Chang and Claire Julien. It also stars Leslie Mann and even Paris Hilton, who I assume plays herself, as she was a Bling Ring target.
The Bling Ring will hit theaters in June, and we await Coppola’s commentary on our celebrity culture. We also look forward to seeing Emma Watson in her first major starring role, Here are some clips from Alexis Neiers’ (real Bling Ring member) former reality TV show to prep for the release.
