Sofia Coppola tackling a true life crime story? Not exactly. We’ve been on this Coppola bandwagon since The Virgin Suicides – and we look forward in seeing how Sofia grabbed a headline item and made it her own. Don’t be surprised if Coppola brings out the best in Emma Watson like she did with the Bill Murray and Kirsten Dunst of this world.
Gist: Inspired by actual events, a group of fame-obsessed teenagers use the Internet to track celebrities’ whereabouts in order to rob their homes.
Release Date: Cannes Film Festival’s Main Competition appears to be the perfect launching pad for this as it is receiving a June release in French theaters shortly after the fest.
