hiltonburger.jpgParis Hilton (“House of Wax”, “One Night in Paris”) has just landed a role in Darren Lynn Bousman’s (“Saw” Franchise), “Repo! The Genetic Opera.” Hilton apparently won the role by being the best singer they auditioned. Really? Because I’m pretty sure there are about 4,000 American Idol contestants that would have an equally good chance of getting it.

Hilton will sing in a futuristic thriller framed around musical numbers that range from opera to rock. The setting is 2056, when a plague nearly destroys the human race and survival is dependent upon being able to finance a pricey organ transplant.

Hilton plays a daughter of the organ transplant magnate (Sorvino) who is the villain of the piece.

The villain eh? Perhaps its the way her eyes illuminate like perfect balls of fire in night vision that gave her the edge.
