Paris Hilton Sings 'Opera'

Now recovered from her time in the hoosegow, Paris Hilton can get back to doing what she does best.

Until she figures out what that is, the tabloid favorite has joined the cast of Lionsgate's musical thriller "Repo! The Genetic Opera."

Also featuring in the Darren Lynn Bousman-directed feature are Alexa Vega ("Spy Kids") and Paul Sorvino ("Law & Order").

Bousman, director of the last three "Saw" films, has been working with writer-composers Darren Smith and Terrance Zdunich for years on the project, set in the year 2056. After a plague nearly wipes out humanity, organ transplants are at a premium.

Sorvino plays an evil organ transplant magnate, with Hilton as his daughter, according to Variety. She will have to sing in the movie.

This is Hilton's first acting role since her brief jail stint last month. Her acting credits include "House of Wax" and several years of "The Simple Life."
