It's showtime for Paris Jackson! The 13-year-old daughter of Michael Jackson has signed her first film role, as the lead in a mixed animation and live-action film called Lundon's Bridge and the Three Keys. She'll play a girl who survives being brainwashed by a jellyfish queen in the ocean.
Filming begins in January. Three Keys is first in a series of five Lundon O'Malley movies to which she's committed, producer Stephen Sobisky tells People. "She wants to be an actress," says Sobisky. "She wants to take on her dad's legacy and do something good for the world and our product does that." One way the film will do good is by donating half the profits to schools.
"She is a sweet, smart girl," continues Sobisky. "Our goal is to make sure she has a fun time doing something that keeps her busy. We're a family-driven group. For me, Paris is going to be like one of my children and I'm going to protect just like I do my other three kids. We want her to enjoy this experience."
