It has been a good two weeks for the Pfister clan. Shortly after renowned cinematographer Wally Pfister was set to make his feature directing debut on an untitled film for Alcon Entertainment, his daughter Claire Julien was set by Sofia Coppola to join the ensemble of her new film The Bling Ring, which stars Emma Watson, Taissa Farmiga and Leslie Mann. Shooting starts next week in LA. Julien joins fellow newcomers Israel Broussard, Katie Chang and Georgia Rock in the project based on real events surrounding a group of celebrity-obsessed teens who looted nearly $3 million in personal property from the homes of Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan and Orlando Bloom between 2008-2009.
Coppola is directing her script, and producing alongside brother Roman Coppola and Youree Henley. Julien will next be seen playing a small role in The Dark Knight Rises. Pfister has been cinematographer on all of Chris Nolan’s Batfilms, and Pfister won the Oscar for his work on Inception. She’s repped by Eric Skinner, one of the eight ICM coordinators upped to agent status recently. ICM also reps Pfister.
