We’ve seen her flex her acting skills on the hit FOX series “Star.” Now, Paris Jackson is ready to make her film debut.

According to Deadline, Michael Jackson’s daughter is set to star in an Amazon Studios film helmed by Nash Edgerton. The title of the film is unknown right now, but we’ve got a little insight into Paris’ role. She will play a girl named Nelly, described as "an edgy 20-year-old" in the dark comedy about a mild-mannered American businessman who crosses a line from citizen to criminal.

She’s joining the cast with Hollywood heavyhitter David Oyelowo, who will play the American businessman Harold Soyinka and YBF actress Thandie Newton. Charlize Theron, Yul Vazquez, Amanda Seyfried, and the director’s brother Joel Edgerton round out the cast.

Below is a synopsis of the film:

Combining dark comedy with dramatic intrigue, the untitled film joyrides across the border into Mexico, where all is not as it seems for businessman Harold Soyinka (Oyelowo). Crossing the line from citizen to criminal, Harold tangles with duplicitous business partners, Mexican drug lords, international mercenaries and the DEA. As he attempts to survive in one the most dangerous places on Earth, the question lingers: Is this ordinary man in way over his head, or is he two steps ahead?

Sounds interesting. No word yet on when it will be released.

“Chewing Gum” actress Michaela Coel will star in an upcoming musical that’s set to hit the big screen titled, Been So Long. And as you see, chick will slaying a few love scenes.

Been So Long is based on the critically acclaimed stage production by Ché Walker and Arthur Darvill that premiered at The Young Vic, according to Shadow And Act. Michaela will lead the all-singing, all-dancing cast, which also stars Arinze Kene (above), and it will be helmed by Tinge Krishnan.

Below is a synopsis:

Romance, rage and revenge. "Been So Long" is a neon soaked, modern day romance set on the streets of London’s musical hot-bed of Camden. We follow Simone (Michaela Coel), a dedicated single mother who, on a rare night on the town is charmed by a handsome yet troubled stranger, igniting old and new feelings. Set against the backdrop of an ever-changing city, "Been So Long" is a fresh take on love, life and moving on.

No word yet on when it will be released (or if it will be released in the U.S.), but it’s expected to hit theaters later this year.  Get it!
