Paris Hilton to captivate nation in Repo Opera
- 27 September 2007
Somewhere in the darkest corners of Burbank there’s a big tombola filled to the very brim with little pieces of paper on which are written a series of names, concepts and titles.
Now Darren Lynn Bousman, he directed the Saw sequels you know, has given that a spin and I think you’ll be excited to hear what he picked out.
He got: genetics, futureshock, Paris Hilton, Sarah Brightman, Paul Sorvino, Anthony Head and best of all, on his last pick he pulled MUSICAL.
Heavens be praised for we are to be treated to Repo! The Genetic Opera starring everyone’s favourite vacuous heiress and Pauly from Goodfellas. Yes, yes and thrice yes.
The story is a tad complicated so we’ll leave it to the press release: “Set in the not-so-distant future, the production tells the story of an epidemic of organ failures that devastates the planet, killing tens of millions. As scientists feverishly make plans for a massive organ harvest program, a multi-billion dollar biotech company called GeneCo begins to manufacture salvation – for a price – offering simple payment plans to those lacking the necessary funds to purchase new body parts outright. But all financed organs are subject to default procedures, including repossession at the hands of the notorious organ repo men.”
All that, songs and an exclamation mark in the title. It simply cannot fail.
To be dreadful.
