Emma Watson has updated her website to officially confirm that she is to star in Bling Ring.
The film, which has been rumoured for the last couple of weeks, will be directed by Sofia Coppola and is based on a true story about a group of teenagers who commit a string of celebrity burglaries.
Emma notes that she will be taking the third term out of her studies at Worcester College, Oxford University, in order to take part in the film. Here’s what she had to say in the brief message on her site:
I’m just packing to go out to Los Angeles for “Bling Ring”.
I’m taking my 3rd term out of Worcester College to make sure I don’t compromise my studies or my part in the film.
I am so excited to have the opportunity to learn from Sofia and make what I think is a very important film. This is a bit of dream for me really.
So that’s my update!
I hope everyone is well.
Love Emma xx
