A new documentary series called The Real Bling Ring: Hollywood Heist has just been released on Netflix. It features in-depth exclusive interviews with Alexis Neiers (now known as Alexis Haines because she got married) and Nick Prugo. In Calabasas, California, there was a ring of convicted thieves known as “The Bling Ring.” Prugo and Neiers were two of the most prominent members of this group. They broke into the houses of a number of famous celebrities, including Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, Orlando Bloom, as well as others.
It is the ideal time to revisit Sofia Coppola’s satirical crime film The Bling Ring, which was released in 2013 and is based on the crimes, as the Netflix docuseries about the crimes is now available to stream in its entirety. In the movie, Emma Watson played the role of Nicolette “Nicki” Moore, a character who was modeled after Neiers. This was one of Emma Watson’s first major appearances after Harry Potter.
Israel Broussard, Katie Chang, Taissa Farmiga, Claire Julien, Georgia Rock, and Leslie Mann are some of the other actors who appeared in The Bling Ring. The character of Marc Hall, created by Broussard, was influenced by Prugo. The film is mentioned several times during the documentary series, and both Neiers and Prugo provide their opinions about particular aspects of the movie and whether or not they think it accurately portrays key events.
Is The Bling Ring on Netflix?
Even while Netflix hosts the documentary series, the film that Sofia Coppola directed is not one of their offerings. On the other hand, there are a few other shows that have a tone that is comparable to that of Inventing Anna, such as the reality series Bling Empire and the show that is also based on a true tale.

Where to watch Lifetime’s Bling Ring movie starring Austin Butler
Prior to the release of Sofia Coppola’s film in 2013, a Lifetime movie from 2011 was also filmed about the same case (of course there was). The fact that Austin Butler appeared in this movie from 2011 and that Sydney Sweeney made an appearance in it is maybe the most shocking revelation of all.

If you have Prime Video, you can view it there if you subscribe to the Lifetime Movie Club add-on channel on Prime Video’s website.

The Bling Ring
The Bling Ring is a satirical crime film that was released in 2013 and was written and directed by Sofia Coppola. The film stars an ensemble cast that is lead by Katie Chang, Israel Broussard, Emma Watson, Taissa Farmiga, and Claire Julien. It is based on an article written by Nancy Jo Sales for Vanity Fair in 2010 titled “The Suspects Wore Louboutins.” This piece discussed a real-life criminal organization known as the Bling Ring. The plot centers on a gang of young people who are obsessed with achieving recognition and who use the internet to find out where famous people are hiding out so that they can rob their homes.
The movie was produced in multiple countries across the globe, including the United States of America, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, France, Germany, and Japan. In December of 2011, Coppola started working on a script that was inspired by the real-life burglary. Early on in the year 2012, the casting process took place, and principal photography did not get underway until March of the same year in Los Angeles, California.
During the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, the film The Bling Ring made its world premiere on May 1, 2013, in the Un Certain Regard section of the festival. On June 14, 2013, it was released in select theaters by A24 in the United States, and then one week later, it was shown in theaters across the country. The film was met with generally favorable reviews from critics; many of them praised both the cast and Coppola’s “stylish” directing; Watson, in particular, was praised for her performance. Others, on the other hand, found fault with the movie because of the morally ambiguous stance it took towards the subject matter.
The Bling Ring is the last film that cinematographer Harris Savides worked on before he passed away from brain cancer during the post-production process of the film. The movie is meant to be a tribute to him.
It was claimed in December 2011 that Sofia Coppola was working on the screenplay for a movie that would be based on the Bling Ring crimes and that she would direct and produce the movie herself. Through his production business, American Zoetrope, her father, Francis Ford Coppola, served in the capacity of executive producer on the project. It was revealed in April 2012 that finance arrangements had been made with NALA Films, and that Roman Coppola would also serve as a producer on the film.
The group of juvenile offenders was referred to by Coppola as “products of our burgeoning reality TV society.” [Coppola] A break from the earlier works of Coppola that were oriented around the female perspective, the film has a number of female characters that are portrayed as strong and independent. She says that instead of a woman trying to find herself in a new foreign country, the story of The Bling Ring focuses on “girls trying on other people’s stuff to find themselves.” This is in contrast to the female perspective in the movie “Lost in Translation,” which follows a woman as she searches for herself in a new country. Despite the fact that The Bling Ring explores a more materialistic and ostentatious sense of style and culture, Coppola claims that the film was inspired by “merely a really enjoyable experience to partake in a fashion that is so dissimilar to my own. To be incredibly arrogant is a lot of fun, despite the fact that I’m more commonly identified with being subtle and having good taste.”
Because of the newness that they brought to the film, Coppola decided to cast young actors who were the same age as the real children but were relatively unknown (with the exception of Emma Watson). On February 29, 2012, Emma Watson was announced as having joined the cast of the movie, and on March 1, 2012, it was rumored that Taissa Farmiga had also joined the principal cast. Additionally, the casting of Leslie Mann and Israel Broussard was revealed by The Hollywood Reporter at the beginning of March. On March 16, Claire Julien became a part of the ensemble, and on the same day, Katie Chang and Georgia Rock were officially cast in their respective parts. During the same month, Carlos Miranda was given a supporting part in the production. At the end of March, it was announced that both Kirsten Dunst and Paris Hilton would appear in the movie in cameo roles as themselves. The scenes with Gavin Rossdale were being filmed at roughly the same time.
The majority of the filming was done in and around the city of Los Angeles, California, throughout the months of March and April 2012, particularly in West Hollywood, Lynwood, and Venice. Both Paris Hilton, who was a victim of the actual Bling Ring robberies, and Kirsten Dunst appeared in the film in a cameo capacity. A few of the sequences were filmed at the Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood, California, as well as in the homes of several of the famous victims.
