A24

Heist drama set for screeing on June 9

The Seattle International Film Festival has selected Sofia Coppola’s “The Bling Ring” as its closing night film on June 9 — five days before its domestic release.

The festival, now in its 39th year, had previously announced that Joss Whedon’s “Much Ado About Nothing” would open the fest on May 16.

The festival plans to screen 272 features and 175 shorts, including 48 North American premieres. The lineup includes Jim Rash’s “The Way, Way Back”; Steven Bernstein’s “Decoding Annie Parker”; David Gordon Green’s “Prince Avalanche”;  David Lowery’s “Ain’t Them Bodies Saints”; Noah Baumbach’s “Frances Ha”; James Ponsoldt’s “The Spectacular Now”; the world premiere of Adam Rodgers’ “Middleton” and Joe Swanberg’s “Drinking Buddies.”

Newly-minted distributor A24 has set a June 14 limited domestic release for real-life theft drama “The Bling Ring,” starring Emma Watson. Movie centers of group of teens from an affluent Los Angeles neighborhood that robbed the homes of celebrities in 2008 and 2009, stealing as much as $3 million worth of jewelry, cash and designer goods from Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom, Audrina Patridge and Rachel Bilson.
