Emma Watson is having no trouble landing roles now that Harry Potter is over. Over recent months we’ve heard that she’ll be re-teaming with David Yates for Your Voice In My Head and will be directed by Guillermo del Toro in a live-action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast. Now the actress has been chosen by Sofia Coppola to lead her next movie, The Bling Ring.
According to Variety the movie will tell the true story of a group of teenagers who commit a string of celebrity burglaries, and it will be shot in and around Los Angeles. Coppola is known for creating quality roles for younger actresses (Scarlett Johansson in Lost in Translation, and more recently with Elle Fanning in Somewhere) so one can see why Watson would be interested in working with her.
Your Voice In My Head is thought to be Watson’s next project, so The Bling Ring may shoot later this year. Watson will next be seen in The Perks of Being a Wallflower opposite Paul Rudd and Logan Lerman.
