Washington: Michael Jackson’s daughter accepted her debut movie role in a fantasy film in a bid to “take on her dad’s legacy”, the project’s producers have revealed.

Paris Jackson has been signed up to star in a new fantasy film titled ‘Lundon’s Bridge and The Three Keys’, which is a mix of live action and animated adventure.

Half of the profits from the movie and book versions of the story will be donated to schools and producer Stephen Sobisky has revealed that the 13-year-old is keen to start work.

“She wants to be an actress. She wants to take on her dad’s legacy and do something good for the world and our product does that,” the Daily Express quoted him as telling People.com.

“She is a sweet, smart girl. Our goal is to make sure she has a fun time doing something that keeps her busy. We’re a family-driven group.

“For me, Paris is going to be like one of my children and I’m going to protect (her) just like I do my other three kids. We want her to enjoy this experience,” he added.

Filming for the movie will commence from January.
