The Bling Ring to Premiere at Cannes
reported that Sophia Coppola's The Bling Ring will open the Un Certain Regard sidebar at this years Cannes Film Festival. Coppola is no stranger to Cannes as Marie Antoinette debuted (rather infamously) in competition at the 2006 film festival. This promises to be one of the bigger American presences at the film festival which will unveil its entire line-up tomorrow. Curiously, The Bling Ring- which stars Emma Watson as a member of fashionistas who steal from the rich and famous, won't be included in the regular competition line-up, as one would suspect a filmmaker of Coppola's name and international respect would be deemed worthy of such, especially in light of last years controversial lack of a strong female presence at the festival. The film will open in the U.S. this June.
