Sofia Coppola’s ‘The Bling Ring’ Debuts New Trailer
(CBS NEWS) – Hermione Granger, this isn’t. Emma Watson is nothing like her “Harry Potter” alter-ego in the latest trailer for Sofia Coppola’s “The Bling Ring.”
The film, due out May 16, is based on the true story of a group of teens who robbed the homes of celebrities, including Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan.
Watson’s character, Nikki, and her fame-obsessed pals want to live the Hollywood lifestyle — and decide to steal from the stars.
“C’mon, let’s go to Paris’ — I want to rob,” Nikki declares. And they do just that, raiding the socialite’s home while she’s out of town.
Daughter of Bay Area Maverick Film Maker and vintner, Francis Ford Coppola, Sofia Coppola has been an Academy Award-winning screenwriter, Oscar Nominated film director, maverick producer and actress in her own right. In 2003, Sofia was nominated for Best Picture, Best Director and Best Original Screenplay for her work on “Lost In Translation” starring Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson.
