Though I'm sure Paris Hilton was crying when she found out that The Simple Life was not being picked up for yet another enlightening season, her tears were dried by the news that she had won a role in a new big-screen flick. Yes, Paris will be playing Paul Sorvino's daughter in the upcoming movie, Repo! The Genetic Opera, a musical set in the year 2056 (Lord, help us).
The premise? "When a plague nearly destroys the human race and survival is dependent upon being able to finance a pricey organ transplant," Variety reports. The director of the film, Darren Lynn Bousman, says the socialite was a perfect fit for the character. "This movie has become my life. I have auditioned at least 30 actresses for this role - Paris came in and owned it. She is this role."
Paris singing and acting, in a full feature film, on a giant screen at my multiplex? I'm thinking about starting a petition to save The Simple Life. Who's with me?
