LOL. Of course it is.
I remember watching Paris Hilton‘s E! True Hollywood Story, and thinking about her obnoxiousness, and also what an interesting life she’s led. Later, I had a press pass to her Christmas Party, which was an animal unlike any other (in short: lots of pictures of Paris and LOTS of Chick-Fil-A. But that’s a blog post for a different time). ANYHOW, there’s going to be a film about Paris’ life, that promises to “reflect on how the spotlight has contributed to the person she is and examine the impact her image has made on young women today”. To tear off the mask covering Paris’ long 35 years of life, documentarians Don Argott and Sheena Joyce are apparently going to interview Paris about all things Paris. It’s what she like to talk about best, so why not?
Anyone who has turned on a television or looked at a computer screen over the past decade may well assume they know everything there is to know about Paris Hilton.
9.14 Pictures and XYZ Films on Wednesday used Cannes to announce an as-yet untitled documentary peering into the life of the “businesswoman, entrepreneur and media icon.”
Don Argott and Sheena Joyce are set to direct the project, which will kick off production in Ibiza at the end of summer, with Hilton, Jamie Freed and 9.14 Pictures producing. XYZ Films, which also is executive producing, is handling worldwide sales and will be introducing the doc to buyers at the Cannes film market.
Billed as a “unflinching, authorized documentary,” the project will see Hilton discuss the thing that made her famous, reflect on how the spotlight has contributed to the person she is and examine the impact her image has made on young women today.
“Paris Hilton is a modern day-Marilyn Monroe — beautiful, iconized, world famous, shaped by mass media and misunderstood,” said Argott and Joyce. “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.”
“Hilton will discuss the thing that made her famous” – would that be her great grandfather’s last name or her first authorized documentary? And to compare Paris Hilton to Marilyn Monroe is a STRETCH.
The production is set to film this summer in Ibiza, where Paris is resident DJ at Amnesia. Now, these documentarians have a pretty good pedigree for making good stuff (they made Rock School and The Art of the Steal) so who knows?
Would you see a documentary about Paris Hilton?
