After playing Hermione in the popular Harry Potter movies, fans will get to see actress Emma Watson in a very different role. Photos have been released of Watson in the role of Nicki in Sofia Coppola’s latest project The Bling Ring. Although Watson did have a role in the Oscar nominated My Week with Marilyn, it is likely that Watson’s fans will flock to see her in Coppola’s project.
Currently in post production, The Bling Ring does not have a release date scheduled yet. The movie focuses on the group on teens who became infamous for robbing valuables from celebrities homes including Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton’s.
To prepare for the role, Watson ended up watching American reality TV including Keeping Up with the Kardashian’s. She describes her preparation as going from high class (she’s still a student at Brown where she reads the classics) to low class (watching reality TV).
