Sofia Coppola has been approaching members of the notorious Hollywood "bling ring" to collaborate with her on a movie, according to TMZ.

Back in 2008, the ne'er-do-wells who made up the "bling ring" targeted the homes — and fancy designer duds — of Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, Audrina Patridge, Orlando Bloom, Rachel Bilson, Brian Austin Green, Ashley Tisdale and Megan Fox. So far the gang's irresistible story has gotten the Lifetime treatment, but the big screen could be next.

There's no start date, no script but TMZ reports that Francis Ford Coppola's Zoetrope studio is backing it. One member Nick Prugo declined the offer to be a consultant, while Tess Taylor, who is the sister of another member Alexis Neiers, has signed on.
