Forever icons, Paris Hilton and Sky Ferreira set to star in pandemic-inspired horror film – ’18 & Over’

Paris Hilton Sky Ferreira film

We won't lie; we've felt generally un-inspired by much of the quarantine or pandemic-themed cinema that has emerged in the last year. Truly; will anything be able to top Contagion? While we'd prefer to never have to watch the trauma and disaster of the last year be carried out on-screen; there is one COVID-19 film that has us hyped, thanks to its two leading ladies Paris Hilton and Sky Ferreira. Yes, you read that correctly. Two of our forever icons are teaming up to take on the big screen for the slasher-film 18 & Over – produced by Pretty Little Liars alum Ashley Benson.

Thankfully from what we know so far, the film only uses the pandemic as a catalyst for the events that transpire in 18 & Over. Although plot details are still few and far between; Deadline has confirmed that the film will see Paris Hilton and Sky Ferreira as key characters in the rise of OnlyFans. Co-created alongside director Jimmy Giannopolous and Diomedes Raul Bermudez; Hilton and Ferreira are just two members of the all-star cast that will feature in the 18 & Over film. Pamela Anderson, Duke Nicholson, A$AP Nast, Winnie Harlow, and G-Eazy will also be making appearances. G-Eazy is also responsible for creating the film's score; which marks a first for the rapper.

“After deciding to shoot this film in the middle of the pandemic, we wanted to make something that would be fun but still a terrifying slasher for audiences during these tough times,” Giannpoulos shared with Deadline. “A film relevant to today’s issues of a global pandemic, reality shows, isolation, OnlyFans, and obsession.”

Given that the film was created during the pandemic; we can expect to see Paris Hilton and Sky Ferreira hit our screens in the very near future. In the meantime; we'll be enjoying these films stills. Courtesy, of Benson's Instagram.
