Distributer A24 has announced a US release date for Sofia Coppola’s The Bling Ring starring Emma Watson. According to Variety, the movie will open in limited release June 14. There is speculation that the trailer for The Bling Ring will debut in theaters with the March 15 opening of Spring Breakers, also distributed by A24.
Variety is also reporting that Emma is in “early talks” to play the title role in Disney’s Cinderella. Kenneth Branagh (Gilderoy Lockhart in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets) will direct the live action adaptation of the fairy tale. Cate Blanchett has signed on to play the wicked stepmother. The studio hopes to begin production this fall and release it next year.
Update: A tweet from Variety’s Marc Graser says Emma decided against Cinderella.
