Brewer's new project: 'Gangster Princess'
Director Craig Brewer - a longtime friend and client of the Memphis & Shelby County Film and Television Commission - has been tapped by Paramount to write and direct Gangster Princess of Beverly Hills.
The project is Brewer's fifth feature film and derives from a Rolling Stone magazine article about Lisette Lee, a fascinating fraud who called herself the Korean Paris Hilton.
The movie is at the very earliest stages of development, Brewer told The Commercial Appeal. He liked the story for “the hustle itself, how vast it was, and how easy it was for people to be blinded by the wealth and the appearance of wealth.”
