13-year-old Paris Jackson has sealed a lead role in 'Lundon's Bridge and the Three Keys', a novel adaptation film which also stars TV mogul Larry King and his wife Shawn.
Michael Jackson's daughter, Paris Jackson, is ready to follow the footsteps of her father in the showbiz industry. The 13-year-old girl has landed her first big screen role in "Lundon's Bridge and the Three Keys", a movie adaptation of Dennis H. Christen's young adult fantasy novel.
The brunette beauty is set to star as lead heroine Lundon O'Malley in the movie. She will join a cast ensemble that include Larry King and his wife Shawn Southwick, as well as Ted Lange and Joey Fatone, and is expected to begin filming in January 2012.
Talking about the casting of the King of Pop's daughter, producer Stephen Sobisky told PEOPLE, "She wants to be an actress. She wants to take on her dad's legacy and do something good for the world and our product does that." He added that half of the benefits from the movie and the book will be donated to schools.
Of the daughter of the late King of Pop, Sobisky said, "She is a sweet, smart girl. Our goal is to make sure she has a fun time doing something that keeps her busy. We're a family-driven group. For me, Paris is going to be like one of my children and I'm going to protect just like I do my other three kids. We want her to enjoy this experience."
"The Three Key" is the first installment of Lundon O'Malley movie series. It is a mix of live-action and animation film that follows ancient sea-magic that turns a dolphin into a human, a teenage boy into a dragonfly and a loving jellyfish queen into an evil fairy godmother. The story uses family love and the magic of belief as weapons to fight a war between the land and the sea.
