It's been revealed today that A24 has picked up The Bling Ring for distribution and will release the film in theaters sometime this June.
The Bling Ring shows a group of teenagers obsessed with fashion and fame who burglarized the homes of celebrities in Los Angeles. Tracking their targets’ whereabouts online, the teens would break-in and steal designer clothes and possessions. Reflecting on the naiveté of youth, amplified by today’s culture of celebrity and luxury brand obsession, the members of the Bling Ring introduce us to temptations that nearly any teenager would find hard to resist. What starts out as youthful fun spins out of control and reveals a sobering view of our modern culture.
The feature stars Emma Watson, Taissa Farmiga (American Horror Story), Israel Broussard, Katie Chang, Claire Pfister, Georgia Rock, Carlos Miranda and Leslie Mann with the plot based off of true events. In fact, portions of the film were shot in the real life homes of Lindsay Lohan, Orlando Bloom, Megan Fox, Rachel Bilson and others while victim of the crimes Paris Hilton will make a cameo appearance.
