It wasn’t that long ago that her famous dad hid her face behind masks and sheets to maintain her privacy in the midst of her very public life. Now Paris Jackson, at 13 (does time fly or what?!), has decided to put herself on big screens everywhere.
E!Online reports that Paris has signed to play the lead in a film based on the young-adult book series Lundon’s Bridge and the Three Keys. The movie will be a blend of live-action and animation, with Paris appearing in live-action form as heroine Lundon O’Malley.The movie, which will also feature the voice talents of Larry King and Joey Fatone, centers around young Lundon, who’s kidnapped by an evil Jellyfish Queen and must stop the fierce war between land-dwellers and sea creatures.
Okay, so maybe it’s not Harry Potter, but its heart is certainly in the right place. According to the film’s official website, a full 50 percent of profits from the sales of both movie tickets and Lundon books will go to schools. “We want to change lives and are committed to education,” say the filmmakers.
Paris seems to have her heart in the right place, too. Her tweets combine typical teen chat with uplifting messages like “Please Make Sure – If You’re Reading This – To LOVE Your Life. Be Appreciative!”
But she also seems to share her father’s desire to make a mark on the world. Shortly after the film news broke, she tweeted, “I Wanna Leave My Footprints On The Sands of Time. When I Leave This World I’ll Leave No Regrets. I’ll Leave Something For Them Not To Forget.”
More news on the film as it develops. In the meantime, Paris is scheduled to appear on Ellen this month, so watch your local listings for details.
(And no word yet on any film projects for Prince Michael or Blanket.)
