Repo: The Genetic Opera :
After spending most of the year living a soap opera, Paris Hilton will be part of a real opera this fall.

Hilton has joined Alexa Vega and Paul Sorvino in the cast of 'Repo! The Genetic Opera,' a full-blown musical thriller co-financed by 'Saw' makers Twisted Pictures and Lionsgate."...

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.

"This movie has become my life," said Bousman. "I have auditioned at least 30 actresses for this role -- Paris came in and owned it. She is this role."

See, I told you terrible things would happen if we commercialized a trade in organs for transplantation.

Thanks to for the pickup--Variety is not on my usual rounds.
