Tribeca Film has dated “Palo Alto,” the debut feature from Gia Coppola, for a May 9 opening in New York and Los Angeles, followed by a national release.
“Palo Alto” screened last year in the Venice, Telluride and Toronto film festivals, and Tribeca Film picked up U.S. rights in December. Coppola is the granddaughter of Francis Ford Coppola and niece of Sofia Coppola.
The film is a James Franco and Rabbit Bandini Prods. presentation, produced by Sebastian Pardo, Adriana Rotaru, Miles Levy and Vince Jolivette and based on several linked stories in James Franco’s book of the same name about a group of high school students.
Franco stars with Emma Roberts, Jack Kilmer, Nat Wolff, Zoe Levin, Chris Messina and Val Kilmer with three storylines — a young woman (Roberts) caught between flirting with her soccer coach (Franco) and a relationship with a teen stoner (Jack Kilmer); another about a promiscuous young woman (Levin); and a third about the stoner and his possibly dangerous best friend (Wolff).
Emma Roberts has joined the cast of Sam Worthington‘s upcoming film For The Dogs, JustJared.com can exclusively confirm.
The 22-year-old actress would take on the role of a college girl named Ella Hatto, replacing Hailee Steinfeld in the Jonathan Mostow directed thriller, which starts shooting in March/April in Germany.

For The Dogs centers on “an assassin who agrees to help a college girl (Roberts) exact revenge on the murderers of her parents and younger brother.”
As Hollywood gears up for tomorrow’s big Golden Globe Awards, many stars are putting the finishing touches on the dress they chose months ago—but not Emma Roberts! The recently engaged star is playing red carpet roulette with her gown this year.
“Some of our clients are coming in the day of the Globes so we are going to be deciding that day, stylist Meritt Elliott of Current/Elliott told InStyle exclusively at Diane von Furstenberg’s star-studded Journey of a Dress exhibition premiere in Los Angeles on Friday night. “We will be accessorizing beforehand, tailoring during hair and makeup and then come up with the entire look that day. It is actually kind of exciting as well.”
With Roberts busy schedule, she’ll be one of the aforementioned stars that will be making a game time decision with her dress. “Emma Roberts is going to wait until the day of Globes because she is in the middle of filming American Horror Story and she is flying in just for the day,” chimed in stylist Emily Current. “It is an opportunity to put your formal wear on and embrace it.”
Dying to see which dress she chooses? So are we! Tune in Sunday, January 12th at 8:00PM ET/5:00PM PT on NBC for the 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards and stay tuned to InStyle as we cover the event live.
Emma Roberts is engaged to Evan Peters, PEOPLE confirms.
According to the report, Peters, 26, proposed to Roberts, 22, in New York City over the holidays with a pink gold and diamond ring. The couple then jetted off to London for New Year’s Eve.
The American Horror Story costars have been dating since 2012.
The actress was arrested for reportedly attacking Peters in a Montreal hotel last July.
A law enforcement source confirmed to PEOPLE that there was a dispute between a couple in Montreal on the reported date, and that a female was arrested, but declined to state the names of those involved because prosecutors decided not to press charges and the case had been closed.
The couple issued the following statement to PEOPLE addressing the disturbance.
“It was an unfortunate incident and misunderstanding,” said the statement from their reps. “Ms. Roberts was released after questioning and the couple are working together to move past it.”
Roberts, who is the niece of Julia Roberts, previously dated Glee’s Chord Overstreet.
Extra was first to post news of the engagement.

Besides landing a role on one of TV’s most buzzed-about shows — and subsequently becoming the subject of one of the most popular GIFs to hit Tumblr — Emma Roberts knows how to work a red carpet. The 22-year-old, a Neutrogena Talent Ambassador, is a constant source of red carpet makeup inspiration with her lush lashes and bold eyeshadow looks.
We caught up with the “American Horror Story” actress to learn about her favorite holiday makeup looks, upcoming projects and, of course, what she really thinks of that “Surprise!” GIF (see below!).
Beauty High: Considering you’re constantly in and out of makeup chairs and on the red carpet, how do you keep your skin from having a major meltdown?
Emma Roberts: The best tip I know is to take off makeup after work. I work 12-15 hour days on set and it can definitely get wearing, so I use Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes and take off my makeup right when I get home and get into bed. As much as I’m exhausted, even if I get home at 2 a.m., I still drag myself out of bed to clean my face.
Emma Roberts may have risen to fame by starring in more family friendly fare like Nickelodeon’s Unfabulous and 2007’s Nancy Drew, but the twenty-two year old actress has effectively shed that skin with a bitchtastic turn as witch Madison Montgomery on FX’s American Horror Story: Coven. The seemingly self-involved starlet is may have met an early demise at the hands of Jessica Lange’s Fiona Goode, but Montgomery is back and bitchier than ever as she navigates her way through Ryan Murphy’s macabre witchcraft-infused world. GQ sat down with Roberts to discuss the series, Spalding sex, Madison haters, and if she’ll return for season four.
GQ: Most of your previous work was much tamer than this. Why did you decide to come back to TV now and how did you get involved with American Horror Story?
Emma Roberts: I’ve always loved TV. I love watching TV and I loved working on TV, even though it was ten years ago. I was always a fan of American Horror Story. The first season, I was literally glued to my TV every week. I had to watch it. I wouldn’t even DVR it. I had to go home and watch it live. I just fell in love with it and I kind of know Ryan [Murphy] through some family and friends, so I always running into him and I would say, “So when are you going to put me in something. I love all your shows. I love your work. You need to put me in something.” I think I just badgered him so much that he finally gave in. [Laughs] He called me up one day and said, “I have this role for you,” and he told me the role and – I’m not even kidding – I was silently screaming and jumping up and down, and then I was like, “Okay, that sounds cool,” trying to play it so cool. It was literally my dream role on my dream show and getting to work with people that I’ve been dying to work with, like Jessica Lange and Kathy Bates and Ryan Murphy. I just remember being like, “We need to say yes! Make it happen!” I needed it solidified because if it didn’t work out I was going to cry.
History has taught us that the transition from child star to adult actor is one of Hollywood’s toughest professional hurdles, but Emma Roberts is making that evolution look effortless with wonderfully complex roles in It’s Kind of a Funny Story, Scream 4, The Art of Getting By and Celeste & Jesse. Although it seems that those projects were simply set-ups for her greatest performance to date: as the wickedly wonderful Madison Montgomery on American Horror Story: Coven.
From her first vitriol-laced barb, it was clear that both the actress and her creation were not to be trifled with. Subsequent episodes have given Emma room to evolve Madison into more than your garden variety bitch as she’s slyly infused all of her most venomous moments with an unmistakable insecurity and breathed luxurious lethargy into Madison’s recent resurrection.
I caught up with Emma Roberts in anticipation of tonight’s mid-season finale (titled Head in honor of Madame LaLaurie’s decapitated dome) that kicks the coven vs. coven feud up a dozen notches. In addition to warning viewers they’ll soon be forced to pick a side, Emma opened up about her time in Ryan Murphy’s Coven, basking in the overwhelming online reaction to Madison and the shocking scene that never aired!
ETonline: Coven fans are pretty obsessed with Madison. What’s the reaction been like for you?
Emma Roberts: It’s been pretty amazing. I was so worried people would hate her too much, but I keep getting all these hilarious Tweets from people saying they love to hate her or declaring they’re on “Team Madison.” It’s really fun to play a character that people have such strong opinions about. I love reading Twitter to see what everyone thinks about the fashion and the hair and makeup and her one-liners. I couldn’t be more excited. I’m seriously going to be so sad when I don’t get to play her anymore.
