Casting appears to be moving quickly on Sofia Coppola’s The Bling Ring now that Emma Watson is set as the lead. We recently learned that American Horror Story star Taissa Farmiga joined the ensemble cast, and now THR reports that Leslie Mann, Israel Broussard (Flipped), Katie Chang, Claire Pfister and Georgia Rock have been added. Written by Coppola, the film is based on the true story of a group of teenagers who robbed the homes of the rich and famous between October 2008 and August 2009, coming away with over $3 million worth of loot from the likes of Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom, and Lindsay Lohan.

Mann will play a mom of two of the girls involved in the thievery, and Broussard is set as the male lead. Besides Watson and Farmiga, Coppola seems to have gone with relative newcomers to play the group of teens. Broussard seems to have the most experience of the four other young ‘uns, most recently starring in The Chaperone with Triple H. I’m always happy to see Mann onscreen, and I’m eager to see Coppola’s take on celebrity/fame obsession. Production is set to begin this spring in Los Angeles.
