Paris Hilton in Repo horror opera
In a move that is obviously capitalising on the press surrounding Paris Hilton's recent collisions with the law, Darren Lynn Bousman has picked her up for his horror opera, Repo! The Genetic Opera.
The film is a horror and an opera packed with musical numbers. Set in 2056 it is in a world where human organs have almost become a currency and can be bought on higher purchase - if you don't keep up with the payments then you can have your organs repossessed, by force.
The story from Variety fills me with dread. Her singing and acting seem passable, but it does reek of a PR move to capture publicity. Mind you, how great is Repo! The Genetic Opera going to be, and does it need the style of Hilton's off screen life to add to it?
