Emma Watson’s plans to stop acting for a while and head for university seem to have been well and truly binned as she’s continuing to sign up for new parts, with the latest being Variety reporting that she’s been cast in Sofia Coppola’s The Bling Ring.
The project is based on the true story of six teenagers who broke into celebrity homes in the Hollywood Hills between October 2008 and August 2009. They made off with more than $3 million in items from the pads of such stars as Paris Hilton, Audrina Patridge, Megan Fox, Rachel Bilson, Orlando Bloom, and Lindsay Lohan. It isn’t known what character Watson will play.
Sofia Coppola is directing The Bling Ring from her own script, with shooting starting later this year.
