The producer Roman Coppola said that in her new film 'The Bling Ring',  Emma Watson not only shows her sexy side, but also her growth as an actress. The son of the acclaimed Francis Ford Coppola concludes that the 22-year-old actress, who became famous in the saga Harry Potter, seems to become one of the great Hollywood stars. Yesterday, it was announced on the Cannes Film Festival's Twitter account that the film will open the Un Certain Regard section, in May.

Directed by Roman's sister, Sofia ('Lost in Translation', 'The Virgin Suicides'), 'The Bling Ring' follows the ex-Hermione Granger as a member of a group of friends obsessed with celebrities and their homes. "It will be exciting and fun. It's a group of guys who are dedicated to rob the stars' houses," explains Coppola. "Everything is based on real events." But the 47-year-old artist, born in France, assures that, as in the previous films of his sister, it won't stay on the anecdotal and formal level. "Basically, it will be entertaining, but on a deep level, it's a reflection on the materialistic society that gives value to the wrong things." Roman, who will soon release his second work as a director, 'A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III', is famous for his screenwriting duo with Wes Anderson, with films such as 'The Darjeeling Limited' and 'Moonrise Kingdom', which earned him a nomination at the Oscars for Best Original Screenplay.
