It's hard to believe its been 10 short years since pop culture megastar/everyone's favorite heiress Paris Hilton made her musical debut with a full-length album, simply titled Paris. ("Stars Are Blind" is a song for the ages, as far as we are concerned.) With the impending anniversary, it looks like we're not the only ones with Paris on the mind: according to the Hollywood Reporter, a documentary on the starlet is underway. Uhh, finally?!
9.14 Pictures and XYZ Films announced the project today (May 11) at Cannes. It doesn't have a title just yet, but hopefully they'll find inspiration for the endless source of iconic quotes from The Simple Life.
Don Argott and Sheena Joyce are set to direct the project; it's being billed as an "unflinching, authorized documentary." The directors told potential buyers at Cannes:
“Paris Hilton is a modern day-Marilyn Monroe — beautiful, iconized, world famous, shaped by mass media, and misunderstood. 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."
