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.
Congrats to Emma & Evan!
