Kardashian Kountry will never be the same! Oscar winner and Indie flick darling Sophia Coppola begins filming her latest offering Bling Ring in the wealthy LA suburb of Calabasas this week. The locale is a famed refuge for all manner of celebutantes and media-mag darlings blinging it up for all they are worth.
The movie, which is written and co-produced by Coppola, tells the story of a gang of media obsessed teen-outsiders, who burglarize their way into the lives of their favorite stars. The movie is based on the true tale of a gang known as the Bling Ring or the Hollywood Hills Burglar Bunch. A group of teenage friends who used the internet to stalk celebrities like Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton,(who they robbed several times) then rob their homes when they were out, attending swish events in Hollywood. The gang allegedly stole more than four million dollars worth of Jewelry and designer clothing, much of which was never recovered.
The Movie will star Emma Watson and Leslie Mann. Coppola, daughter of famed Director and wine grower Francis Ford Coppola is co producing the movie, alongside her brother Roman Coppola and Youree Henley who also produced Coppolas cult hit Somewhere.
