IN THE WORKS: Bejo Goes Brit, Coppola's Burglar Bunch

Bérénice Bejo has landed a role in the UK’s “The Scapegoat,” based on Daniel Pennac’s French novel, “Au Bonheur des Ogres.” Raphaël Personnaz and Emir Kusturica will costar. Rising French director Nicolas Bary will direct, with Bejo playing an investigative journalist dating a professional scapegoat who works in a Paris department store and takes blame for customer complaints. When a bomb goes off in the toy department, he must clear his name. ThePlaylist has more.

Early details are arising via TMZ that Sofia Coppola is developing a project about Hollywood’s Burglar Bunch, the infamous group that stole from celebrities. No script currently exists for the project, said to be under Francis Ford Coppola’s Zeotrope banner, but Tess Taylor — sister of Alexis Neiers, one of the Bunch — is reportedly signed in some capacity. Among her credits: Playboy’s Cyber Girl of the Year 2010. Both sisters (and a third) appeared on E! reality show “Pretty Wild,” which followed their attempt to climb the Hollywood ranks. Eek. Sounds like it’s inside Coppola’s rich Hollywood playground wheelhouse.
