While the production has not yet revealed specific details about the writer or cast, the announcement details that Elle and Dakota Fanning will serve as executive producers of the series through their production company, Lewellen Pictures. Hilton herself will also serve as an executive producer, collaborating with Bruce Gersh.
Hilton’s rise to fame has been nothing short of remarkable. As an heir to the Hilton Hotel fortune, she could have simply lived a life of luxury. However, Hilton carved out her unique path, beginning as a model and later venturing into the world of reality television with the hit show The Simple Life, where she starred alongside Nicole Richie.
The show enjoyed success with three seasons on Fox and an additional two on E!. Hilton’s creative pursuits also include the release of her 2006 album, Paris, and the publication of her book, Confessions of an Heiress. Her foray into acting included roles in films like House of Wax and Repo! The Genetic Opera.
Elle and Dakota Fanning ventured into production with the establishment of Lewellen Pictures in 2020. Their portfolio includes the popular Hulu series The Great, in which Elle starred, and The Girl From Plainville. Furthermore, the Fannings are currently working on the docuseries Mastermind for Hulu and have numerous projects in various stages of development with well-known companies such as MRC, Amazon, A24, and Hulu.
Who Should Play Paris Hilton in Her A24 Series?
As the exciting TV adaptation of Hilton’s best-selling book, Paris: The Memoir, takes shape under the guidance of executive producers Elle and Dakota Fanning, the question on everyone’s mind is: Who should play Hilton herself? While the project is still in its early stages, it’s never too early for some fan-casting speculation.
To embody the iconic princess of paparazzi and hotel heiress, certain qualities come to mind. A willingness to go blonde, even if just for the role, seems essential, given Hilton’s signature look. Height, a certain poise, and the ability to convey a knowingly vacant stare are also qualities that would bring authenticity to the character.
Among the possible actresses who could take on this role, names like Amanda Seyfried, Lucy Hale, and Lily James come to mind. These talented performers have showcased their versatility and could potentially capture the essence of Hilton’s unique persona.
