Emma Watson - Emma Watson To Play Los Angeles Burglar In 'Bling Ring'

Emma Watson has joined the cast of Sofia Coppola's hugely anticipated movie 'Bling Ring' about the notorious group of Los Angeles teenagers who caused a sensation three years ago by burgling the houses of celebrities including Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan.
The Harry Potter actress has reportedly signed on to play former television star Alex Neiers, who ended up serving a 30 day jail sentence for her part in the crime, though this is yet to be confirmed. Details of the project are limited at the present time, but it is understood that Coppola will write and direct the movie, and will not stray too far from the scenes where the robberies actually took place, recently telling Variety, "I'm excited about the young cast we're assembling and I'm looking forward to shooting on location here in Los Angeles". The criminal group made headlines between 2008 and 2009 when they stole an estimated $3 million worth of jewellery and designer clothing from stars such as Hilton, Lohan, Rachel Bilson and Audrina Patridge. Neiers was eventually sentenced to 180 days in jail after being caught robbing the home of Orlanda Bloom, but served just 30.

That seems like a light sentence for having stolen so much property. I really Liked Ms. Coppolas "Virgin Suicides " when I saw it in the Theater. I've also got it on Video Tape. I don't get around much anymore, with so many neighborhood theaters closing and the ones remaining mostly out of reach. But anything with Emma in it, I'd make an effort to see.If not I'll buy it on DVD. She's one of my favorite younger actresses.

Interesting coincidence the movie is announced just as Audrina Patridge is making a big reveal of her own in Las Vegas this Saturday at the Chateau in the Paris Hotel. Will it be 2012 reminiscent of The Hills Audrina or dowdy 2011 Audrina who shows up?
