19-year-old Paris Jackson will be making her feature film debut in Amazon Studios’ “Untitled Nash Edgerton Project”.
The upcoming movie is described as a dark comedy-thriller and it was reported that she’ll portray an edgy 20-year-old named Penny. The model will be starring alongside household names like David Oyelowo, “The Fate of the Furious” star Charlize Theron, Amanda Seyfried, Thandie Newton, and Sharlto Copley.
Dubbed by Vanity Fair as Hollywood’s newest It Girl, the daughter of Michael Jackson previously guest starred in Fox’s musical series, “Star”. A source close to the model said, “If you had to put her priorities in order, it would probably be acting, activism, and modelling.”
The source also added, “She’s passionate about all of them. Her modelling career is really taking off and you can expect some big announcements coming in the next month or so.”
Helmed by Nash Edgerton, who made his feature directorial debut with Aussie thriller “The Square”, the upcoming movie will follow Harold Soyinka (played by Oyelowo), a mild-mannered American businessman who becomes tangled with duplicitous business partners, Mexican drug lords, international mercenaries, and the DEA. As he attempts to survive in one the most dangerous places on Earth, the question lingers: Is this ordinary man in way over his head, or is he 2 steps ahead?
