Paris Jackson will be “ready for the task” of making her movie acting debut, a producer has claimed.
Producers on Paris Jackson’s new movie are “confident” she will be ready to make her debut.
The 15-year-old daughter of the late Michael Jackson was taken to hospital on Wednesday following a suicide attempt. Paris is due to make her film acting debut in Lundon’s Bridge and the Three Keys.
Producer Dennis Christen – who wrote the book which inspired the movie – believes Paris won’t have any problems fulfilling her obligations.
“Paris is very important to us and we all love her deeply. Any comment about her private life will have to come from her family,” Dennis told Us Weekly. “We are confident that when we are ready to roll the cameras, she will be ready for the task.”
Lundon’s Bridge and the Three Keys is based on a young adult book series. It sees a human turned into a dolphin by ancient magic, while other spells transform a teenage boy into a dragonfly and a jellyfish morphs into an evil fairy godmother.
Funding and pre-production for the film are currently wrapping up and Dennis has been impressed by Paris’ acting talents so far.
“Paris will do a delightful job in her role… She’s been concentrating on developing her acting skills and is becoming a very proficient actor,” he added. “We wish her the very best as she works through this difficult time. She knows that she has millions of fans out there that love her deeply and only want happiness for her.”
Paris reportedly used a meat cleaver to cut her arm and ingested painkiller Motrin (Ibuprofen), before emergency services arrived to treat her.
Insiders have told Us Weekly that the teenager has “major depression issues” which stem from the death of her superstar father in 2009.
Michael died from a Propofol overdose and his personal physician Conrad Murray was convicted of involuntary manslaughter. He is currently serving his sentence at the Los Angeles County Jail, and TMZ reports the doctor has reached out to Paris.
The website claims that Murray used a pay phone to send an audio message to her, saying “I’m here for you”.
During the “letter” he also uses the title of a Michael song, You are not Alone, and tells her, “I don’t know if there’s anything to do to solve your pain.”
It is also alleged that Murray says Paris consoled him even “in [her] deepest moments of grief”.
