The law calls it stealing. They called it shopping. It’s been five years since the Hollywood Burglar Bunch first made headlines, but it’s just now that we’re a few short months away from seeing the story play out on the big screen!
“The Bling Ring”, which is based on the true story of a group of LA teens and twenty-somethings who burglarized the homes of high-profile celebrities to the tune of nearly $3 million dollars, is set to hit theaters this June. The film stars
Hermione Granger Emma Watson as a brunette bad girl with expensive tastes.
Look familiar? She should! With the addition of the dark dye job, Juicy Couture tracksuits, and copious eyeliner, Emma is pretty much a dead ringer for Alexis Neiers, arguably the most famous of the Bling crew. Alexis, as you may remember, had a brief reality career on E! via her show “Pretty Wild”–all nine episodes are streaming on Netflix if you haven’t seen it or are in need of some long-weekend entertainment. Emma’s character’s name, of course, is “Nicki”…Not Alexis. According to Miss Watson, however, Nicki enjoys “lipgloss, purses, yoga, pole dancing, Uggs, Louboutins, juice cleanses, iced coffee, and tattoos.” Sooounds pretty Alexis-y to me.
It’s been a hot minute(AKA three years) since Coppola’s last directorial pursuit, and with a story this prime for adaptation and the whole good-witch-gone-bad thing from Emma, chances are good that this film is going to be major. Peep the sneak-peek teaser below!
Debauchery, dance scenes, and gigantic celebrity closets? So good. Are you as excited to see this movie as I am?! Bling Ring, baby!
…And so it is.
