Now that a parade of cover stories are behind her and she’s firmly ensconced as a celebrity in her own right, Paris Jackson is continuing to find her footing outside of the legend of her father, Michael Jackson — and she’s doing so with a burgeoning film career.
E! News reports that Jackson has signed on for a feature film helmed by Nash Edgerton, the prolific director/stuntman whose most recent credits include some of the gnarliest stunts of the last few years via The Equalizer, American Ultra, The Bling Ring and The Great Gatsby.
The movie — which is set to be a comedy/thriller, and is backed by Amazon Studios — offers up a star-studded cast, with Charlize Theron, Amanda Seyfried, Thandie Newton, and David Oyelowo also attached to the project.
The title of the flick is TBD, but Jackson will apparently be playing a 20-year-old “edgy” character named Penny, which is more or less the 19-year-old’s aesthetic anyway. Sounds like a fitting choice, and an exciting development for the star-in-the-making.
