Let’s look past the current summer movie for just a second to take a look at a couple of works that are a bit farther off on the horizon. Sofia Coppola‘s fact-based The Bling Ring stars Harry Potter actress Emma Watson as the leader of a band of fame-obsessed thieves who steal from the likes of Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan, while David Fincher‘s Netflix miniseries House of Cards stars Kevin Spacey as a ruthless politician who’ll stop at nothing to claw his way to the top. Check out the first official photos from both after the jump.

I don’t know how she’s doing it, but Kristen Bell‘s been booking roles almost faster than we can write them up this week. Hot on the heels of news that she’d been cast in Disney’s Frozen and the Neil LaBute adaptation Some Girls, Bell has also landed a part in the dramedy Writers. Recent additions to the film also include Logan Lerman (The Three Musketeers), Nat Wolff (The Naked Brothers Band), Liana Liberato (Trust), and Lily Collins (Mirror, Mirror) joining previously cast stars Greg Kinnear and Jennifer Connelly.

Written and directed by Josh Boone, Writers follows the dysfunctional Borgens family: successful novelist dad Bill (Kinnear), his ex-wife (Connelly), their college-aged daughter (Collins), and teenage son (Wolff). Lerman will play a fellow student pursuing the daughter, while Liberato will play the son’s first love. Bell is lined up for the part of Tricia, who, as Bill’s friend-with-benefits, helps him get over his ex. Shooting on Writers begins next week in North Carolina. [Deadline]

The cast of Stuart Zicherman‘s A.C.O.D. just keeps getting better. Mary Elizabeth Winstead has just joined Adam Scott, Richard Jenkins, and Jane Lynch in the comedy, which centers around around thirtysomething Carter (Scott). When his younger brother gets engaged, Carter must try and keep the peace between his long-divorced parents lest they ruin the wedding. Winstead is set to play Lauren Stinger, Carter’s supportive longtime girlfriend.

Winstead drew raves at Sundance earlier this year for her turn in James Ponsoldt’s Smashed, and has A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter due out later this year. [Deadline]

After the jump, Mila Kunis gets demonic, while Vera Farmiga’s little sister goes on a crime spree.

Emma Watson Tapped for Sofia Coppola’s ‘The Bling Ring’

Over the past decade, Sofia Coppola has demonstrated a knack for working with talented young actresses. Whether it’s Scarlett Johansson in Lost in Translation, Kirsten Dunst in The Virgin Suicides, or Elle Fanning in Somewhere, Coppola not only knows how to pick them, but what to do with them once she has them. Now the latest star to join the club is Emma Watson, who’s signed up for one of the leads in Coppola’s ensemble picture The Bling Ring. More details after the jump.
