Emma Watson goes bling in new role

Emma Watson has been lined up to star in Sofia Coppola's new film The Bling Ring.

Variety said that Sofia would write and direct the movie, the true story of a group of teenagers who commit a string of celebrity burglaries.

"I'm excited about the young cast we're assembling and I'm looking forward to shooting on location here in Los Angeles," the Lost In Translation and Marie Antoinette director said.

Harry Potter star Emma last year started her first term at Oxford University, after quitting America's Brown University.

She recently starred in My Week With Marilyn and is set to appear with Paul Rudd in Perks Of Being A Wallflower.

The actress will be following in the footsteps of Scarlett Johansson in Lost In Translation and and Somewhere's Elle Fanning, who broke into more adult material with Coppola films.
