NEW YORK (Hollywood Reporter) - Paris Hilton BFF with . . . Todd Solondz?

The indie filmmaker's newest ensemble project, a dramatic family comedy set against the backdrop of a war, features the socialite alongside Allison Janney, Charlotte Rampling and Paul Reubens.

The producers describe the untitled project as a "part-sequel, part-variation" on Solondz's dark 1998 family saga "Happiness."

Hilton is currently in theaters, along with Paul Sorvino and Sarah Brightman, with the low-budget horror musical "Repo! The Genetic Opera."
