HOLLYWOOD (Burbank) * EXCLUSIVE * -- Paris Hilton is to take on the part of the Flying Nun, in a Remake of the old Sally Field series. Sally Field, now appearing in Brothers and Sisters, will guest as Mother Superior.
"It was either that, or a female version of Burke's Law," said an excited Hilton, "I chose the nun as it fits in with my new missionary image."
Presumably, there'll be no upskirts pictures when Paris takes off in her habit, with coronet (headgear).
Presley-Marie Productions will begin shooting soon, with casting for the weekly love-interest guest-staring hunk still ongoing. Hilton was not the first choice however. Transformers star Megan Fox was originally cast, but rejected ultimately as too unsaintly.
"We are hoping to update the series so the Flying Nun (Hilton) can fly off and meet Captain Jack Sparrow, Harry Potter, and the like," Presley-Marie Productions spokeswoman Egypt Littlewood said.
Sounds as if it might be a mighty TV series!
