New Paris Hilton documentary in works

Reported by Screen Daily

9.14 Pictures and XYZ Films will produce Untitled Paris Hilton Documentary, to be directed by Don Argott and Sheena Joyce. XYZ commences sales in Cannes this week.

The authorised documentary will be produced by Hilton, Jamie Freed and 9.14 Pictures, with XYZ Films on board as executive producer and worldwide sales agent.

A production start has been earmarked for Ibiza at the end of summer.

The film will focus on Hilton’s life as socialite, entrepreneur and media icon. The subject will discuss her celebrity and examine her impact on young women.

“Paris Hilton is a modern day Marilyn Monroe – beautiful, iconised, world-famous, shaped by mass media, and misunderstood,” said Argott and Joyce.

“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.”

Argott and Joyce are best known for such critically acclaimed documentary films as Rock School, Last Days Here and The Art Of The Steal.

XYZ Films is currently producing and handling sales on Vince Vaughn starrer Brawl In Cell Block 99, among others.
