Lionsgate Home Entertainment will bring to Blu-ray director Dito Montiel’s action drama Empire State (2013), starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Liam Hemsworth, and Emma Roberts. The preliminary release date set by the studio is September 3rd.
Synopsis: After failing to get into the police academy, Chris Potamitis settles for a security guard job with the Empire State Armored Truck Company. Chris makes the mistake of mentioning the company’s lax security to his best friend, Eddie, and is soon unwittingly drawn into an elaborate scheme to rob the abundant amounts of cash being stored there – resulting in the largest cash heist in U.S. history. As the stakes continue to rise, Chris and Eddie must outwit James Ransone, the veteran NYPD Detective that is hot on their trail, as well as the local crime bosses that want to know who pulled a job on their turf, or suffer the consequences.

Some girls may get a new haircut for summer. Others might try out a new bronzer. But Emma Roberts may just outdo them all.
On her summer agenda: “I want to try colored mascaras this summer,” she tells PEOPLE. “Maybe dye my hair a cool color. I love seeing girls do that.”
She didn’t give up any hints on hue (here’s hoping for bright purple!) but since we’ve gotten a glimpse at her artistic side as the Vans Custom Culture ambassador this year, we think she may just go bright.
The star (who is serving on a judging panel in the June 11 contest to determine which finalist high school will receive $50,000 from Vans for their arts program) doodled on her own pair of pair of Vans (above) to help rev up participation in the competition.
“I wanted to do a girlie take on classic Vans. That’s why I did the classic checkers but also did lips and a heart [on the toes],” she tells us.
That’s all well and good, but how do the rest of us wear sneakers with our everyday outfits? “I wear black lace-up Vans with everything from dresses to denim shorts,” she says, noting that her go-to outfit would be Genetic denim shorts, a cute tank and aviators. Also on her wish list: a white Proenza Schouler bag that “I’m dying over,” Elkin dresses and lots of vintage.
Emma voices the character of Amanda Barrington on FOX’s Family Guy, which the episode aired last week on May 19th! The Griffins are invited to join the prestigious Barrington Country Club. Check out her clips below!
Emma Roberts, who most recently starred in Fox pilot Delirium, is nearing a deal to join American Horror Story: Coven, our sister site TVLine reports. Roberts (Scream 4) will play a self-involved party girl named Madison. She’ll join previously announced Oscar winner Kathy Bates, Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Lily Rabe, Frances Conroy, Taissa Farmiga, Angela Bassett, Patti LuPone and Gabourey Sidibe for Season 3.
IFC Films has acquired North American rights to Scott Coffey’s comedy “Adult World,” starring Emma Roberts as an employee at a sex shop.
IFC is planning a day and date release in theaters and on VOD. “Adult World” premiered April 20 at Tribeca.
Evan Peters, John Cusack, Armando Riesco, Cloris Leachman and Shannon Woodward also star. Producers are Justin Nappi and Kevin Turen of Treehouse Pictures with Joy Gorman, Alex Goldstone and Manu Gargi.
Story, penned by Andy Cochran, centers on a young woman living with her parents who’s anxious to get her poetry career off the ground. She begrudgingly accepts a job at Adult World, the local sex shop.
Ronnie Schieb wrote in her review for Variety: “Coffey’s loose, casual style, tilting toward the performance-centric and improvisational — as with his 2005 debut, ‘Ellie Parker,’ starring genius-caliber actress Naomi Watts — cannot fully accommodate the presence of former kidvid starlet Emma Roberts (‘Nancy Drew’), heading an otherwise comfortable, quite excellent cast. Nevertheless, the film’s coyly titillating subject matter and John Cusack’s delicious star turn as a curmudgeonly, once-lionized poet should support a limited run.”
The deal was negotiated by Arianna Bocco for Sundance Selects/IFC Films with CAA on behalf of the filmmakers.
