Paris Jackson is looking to make a splash in the movie world. 

The 19 year old daughter of Michael Jackson is set to star in a new film alongside David Oyelowo and Charlize Theron. 

The as yet untitled film is described as a comedy thriller and sees Oyelowo play a mild-mannered American businessman with a stake in a pharmaceutical company that’s about to go public when his life is thrown into turmoil by an incident in Mexico. He’s left stranded with a price on his head and discovers the existence of a side of life that he had never knew existed. There's not much detail on Jackson's role except that her character will be an edgy 20 year old named Penney. 

The film also stars Joel Edgerton, Sharlto Copely, Amanda Seyfried and Thandie Newton. It will be directed by Edgerton's brother Nash from a script co-written by Anthony Tambakis and Matthew Stone. 

It's been a big year for Paris. Following the controversy surrounding Joseph Fiennes playing her father in Sky's Urban Myths, she was signed by modelling agency IMG Models and also made her acting debut in an episode of Fox's musical drama, Star. She was also part of Kylie Jenner's star studded bathroom selfie and Monday's Met Gala.
