As if the whole world doesn’t know her story yet, hotel heiress Paris Hilton announced her newest film project: a documentary about her own life. What’s more, the “unflinching, authorised documentary” is being introduced to buyers at the Cannes Film Festival.
9.14 Pictures and Jamie Freed are set to produce the film, with Don Argott and Sheena Joyce directing. XYZ films is executive producing and is marketing the documentary to prospective buyers at the Cannes film market.
“Paris Hilton is a modern day-Marilyn Monroe — beautiful, iconised, world famous, shaped by mass media and misunderstood,” Argott and Joyce told The Hollywood Reporter. “We are thrilled to work with Paris to explore her complicated relationship with the public, the press and the politics that shape our perception of a modern celebrity.”
The documentary film peers into the behind-the-scenes life of the “businesswoman, entrepreneur and media icon.” Production for the yet untitled documentary will begin in Ibiza with Paris Hilton at the end of summer. Aside from seeing her day-to-day activities, viewers will see Hilton discussing her rise to fame. It is expected that she will open up about her sex tape called One Night in Paris, which surfaced more than 10 years ago right before she starred in the hit reality series, The Simple Life.
The starlet will also discuss how spotlight has contributed to her development as a person. She will also share her reflection on how she has influenced the young women of today.
Before the sex tape and her eventual claim to Hollywood, Paris Hilton was known as the great-granddaughter of hotel tycoon Conrad Hilton. She was a model under Donald Trump’s agency and was largely regarded as a New York-based “It” girl who was big on partying.
In an interview with Nylon magazine, Hilton said she has no intention of doing another reality show. “I’m focusing on my brand and my business. I don’t have time to do a show,” Hilton said.
