Much time has passed and and Wright is no longer attached, but now a new director has stepped in. It’s being reported that Sofia Coppola, writer and director of Lost in Translation (which she won a Best Original Screenplay Oscar for), will now direct the movie.

Live Fast, Die Young,
Bad Girls Do It Well

Written and directed by Sofia Coppola (Lost in Translation), The Bling Ring stars Emma Watson as a member of a gang of fame-obsessed L.A. teenagers who begin burglarizing the homes of the rich and famous.

The movie opens with a nighttime break-in, as kids scale a security gate and infiltrate a well-secured property in the Hollywood Hills. They snatch up thousands in exotic clothing, jewelry, and cash.

As the film jumps forward to their arrest and then flashes back to tell their story (via media interviews), Coppola reveals that this is Orlando Bloom’s house. Based on a Vanity Fair article by Nancy Jo Sales, The Bling Ring is inspired by a 2008–2009 spree of L.A. robberies where high-schoolers from Calabasas, California — Rebecca (Katie Chang), Marc (Israel Broussard), Nicki (Watson), Sam (Taissa Farmiga), and Chloe (Claire Julien) — use the Internet to track celebrities’ whereabouts and target their homes for theft.

Party Boy From ‘Jackass’ & Stephen Dorff To Star In Sofia Coppola’s ‘Somewhere’
  |  @   |  

That…that may just be the oddest title I’ve ever written.

Odd or not, though, the title shines true. It’s being reported that Chris Pontius, star of MTV’s Jackass as the ever-popular Party Boy, has been cast alongside Stephen Dorff (Blade, Deuces Wild) in Sofia Coppola‘s (Marie Antoinette, Lost in Translation) new film, Somewhere.

Pontius was cast in the role of Sammy, who is the best friend to Dorff’s character. The movie is about Dorff, a “bad-boy” actor who lives in West Hollywood and gets a reality check when his eleven year old daughter (played by Elle Fanning, sister of Dakota) shows up. This causes him to completely re-examine his life and how he goes about it.

Pontius wouldn’t strike you as the acting type exactly, as he always comes off as quiet and a little goofy on Jackass, possibly due to a stiff drink or two…or maybe something else. He has, however, done a little acting here and there, playing an Irish henchman in McG’s Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle; playing Jesus in TV: The Movie; and appearing in a film called What We Do Is Secret.
