Michael Jackson's daughter Paris Jackson scores first film role
Michael Jackson's 13-year-old daughter Paris Jackson has landed her first film role in the upcoming "Lundon's Bridge and the Three Keys."
Paris Jackson will appear in the mixed live-action and animated film as heroine Lundon O'Malley, who survives the brainwashing of a jellyfish queen in the ocean.
"She wants to be an actress," producer Stephen Sobisky told People magazine. "She wants to take on her dad's legacy and do something good for the world and our product does that."
The film is based on a young adult fantasy novel of the same name, written by Dennis Chrsten. Filming begins in January for the movie, which is the first in a series of five Lundon O'Malley films.
Sobisky told the weekly that half of the profits from the film and corresponding books, which feature Paris on the cover, will be donated to schools.
"She is a sweet, smart girl," Sobisky continued. "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."
According to the film's IMDB page, the film will also star Joey Fatone, "The Love Boat" actor Ted Lange and Larry King and his wife Shawn Southwick, who is slated to portray Queen Dalina.
Autopsy results show that Paris' father Michael Jackson died at age 50 on June 25, 2009 from an overdose of propofol, a powerful anesthetic that the singer referred to as his "milk," and other sedatives. The pop star's doctor Conrad Murray administered the drugs to Jackson in the hours before his death and was sentenced to four years in prison on November 29.
