Emma Watson Robs Paris Hilton and Co In 'The Bling Ring' (Trailer)

In perhaps her biggest departure from Hermione Granger and Harry Potter yet, Emma Watson stars as a teenage Los Angeles thief in Sofia Coppola's 'The Bling Ring.' The actress appears to be following the likes of Kristen Stewart and Selena Gomez and moving from family friends roles to provocative parts, and Coppola's movie is certainly controversial.

As the trailer explains, the plot is based on real events and follows a group of fame-obsessed internet savvy teenagers who went on a burgling spree of celebrity houses across Los Angeles in 2008 and 2009. Making headline news at the time, the fashionable crew hauled around $3 million in cash and valuables, largely from Paris Hilton's house, though also from pads owned by the likes of Orlando Bloom, Megan Fox and Lindsay Lohan. Ultimately, they knew when the A-listers were keeping up appearances in Hollywood, New York etc and consequently targeted their homes. Reality star and heiress Paris Hilton actually has a cameo as herself in Coppola's movie.

Joining Watson in the cast are Leslie Mann, Taissa Farmiga, Halston Sage, Gavin Rossdale and Erin Daniels. It's due out in June in the US, though there's no UK release date as yet. 

Copolla will be hoping for success for The Bling Ring at this year's film festivals. Her movie Somewhere premiered at the 67th Venice International Film Festival, where it received the prestigious Golden Lion award.
