Paris Hilton: New Film, New Album

From the big house to the big screen, Paris Hilton's lined up yet another movie role.

Hilton will star in 2008's Repo! The Genetic Musical, which appears to a be a futuristic, sci-fi musical centering around the demise of the human race. Paris calls it a "unique project," and she's right; it's unique in that they hired her. "I've been rehearsing every day—seven hours a day," said Hilton. "We're just in the studio. We're doing dance and singing. We go shoot next month in Toronto." Paris mentioned she was looking forward to the Toronto shoot, because "I hear Greece is just beautiful in the fall."

The film's director, the same guy behind the Saw franchise, backs up his decision to cast the heiress, stating, "I have auditioned at least 30 actresses for this role—Paris came in and owned it. She is this role."

Paris isn't limiting her in-studio activities to the film world. She's also been working with Scott Storch -- who worked with her on her debut album -- to create a sophomore release, and has been spotted around LA recording studios. I hope this album focuses on rapping about doing hard time, because that's about the only way I'll find it interesting. The novelty's gone, Paris. It was funny the first time. Now it's just unnecessary.
