Cannes: Paris Hilton Documentary to be Produced by XYZ Films and 9.14 Pictures

Cannes: Paris Hilton Documentary to be Produced by XYZ Films and 9.14 Pictures

Paris Hilton will produce a documentary about — wait for it — herself, with the help of 9.14 Pictures and Jamie Freed, who executive produced Hilton’s 2011 TV series “The World According to Paris.” XYZ Films will executive produce the still-untitled doc, which will begin production late this summer in Ibiza. This marks the second instance of a Hilton documentary following 2008’s “Paris, Not France.”

Don Argott and Sheena Joyce will co-direct the film. Argott previously directed the 2011 music documentary “Last Days Here,” which Joyce produced, about the troubled heavy metal rocker Bobby Liebling. The pair recently co-directed the 2015 Romantic Comedy “Slow Lerners.”

The filmmakers are billing the doc as an “all-access, candid, authentic, and honest view” of Hilton. The authorized documentary will explore everything that made Hilton famous “and examine the impact her image has made on young women today.”

XYZ Films will handle worldwide sales on the movie, which will begin at the Marché du Film in Cannes. The festival kicked off Wednesday, but buyers of films in the program (and works in progress being shopped at the marketplace) have already begun sniffing out potential hot titles for purchase. “Aquarius,” from director Kleber Mendonca Filho, screened to buyers yesterday to a generally positive reception.
