Paris Hilton Lands Opera Gig


Paris Hilton
Paris Hilton has been cast to play Paul Sorvino's daughter in musical thriller "Repo! The Genetic Opera."


Still determines to work her way in acting, Paris Hilton has surprisingly reached deals to take starring part in Twisted Pictures and Lionsgate Films' full-blown musical thriller "Repo! The Genetic Opera", thereby joining Paul Sorvino and Alexa Vega in the cast.

Directed by Darren Lynn Bousman, pic is set in 2056 during which a plague nearly destroys the human race and survival is dependent upon being able to finance a pricey organ transplant. Hilton, who will also sing in the project, is billed to portray a daughter of the organ transplant magnate, played by Sorvino, who is the villain of the piece.

"I have auditioned at least 30 actresses for this role -- Paris came in and owned it. She is this role," Bousman remarked.

With the filmmakers' willingness to cast her in, "Repo!" therefore is the first movie deal Hilton lands since her highly-publicized jail stint. The hotel heiress, known for her reality show "The Simple Life", previously showed up in several film titles like "House of Wax" and "Raising Helen."
