Paris Jackson just secured a role in a brand new thriller with her friend, Bella Thorne, a report from the New York Post revealed. The model will portray Jesus Christ in the independent movie, Habit, which is currently in the post-production phase.
Producer Donovan Leitch confirmed the Jackson heiress’ involvement to Fox News. Reportedly, the brand new film, inspired by some of Tarantino’s earlier movies, is about a young girl with a penchant for Jesus who gets mixed up in a drug deal. She has to escape while dressed up as a nun.
According to the New York Post, Jackson will co-star alongside Bella Thorne, Gavin Rossdale, Josie Ho, Alison Mosshart, Jamie Hince, and the model, Andrea Pejic. Written by Suki Kaiser and directed by Janell Shirtcliff, the new movie will also star Libby Mintz.

At the moment, it’s unclear when Habit will be released, but earlier this year, Bella Thorne was spotted out in public wearing a nun’s outfit and fans were curious about what she was up to. At the time, it was reported she was starring in a movie but there was no information revealed at the time.
Regardless, this won’t be the first time Jackson has worked as an actress. Paris also had a small role in Lee Daniel’s drama, Star, Gringo, and the “Rescue Me,” music video from the band, 30 Seconds To Mars featuring Jared Leto.
Earlier this year, Jackson was in the headlines once again when she revealed a brand new Lord of the Rings-inspired tattoo. The young artist reportedly got the tattoo to lift the public’s spirit during these trying times.
Page Six picked up on an Instagram post from the young model in which she revealed the tattoo depicting the Elvish Language from J.R.R Tolkien’s classic novels. Her tattoo reportedly reads, “a light from the shadows (shall spring).”
It’s not unlikely Paris got the tattoo as a way to inspire optimism as the world continues to fight and grapple with COVID-19. The United States is currently on lockdown.
