Another Paris Hilton documentary is on its way, but this time it will be produced by the reality star herself.

Jamie Freed, executive producer of Paris Hilton’s TV series The World According to Paris, will be working on the documentary alongside others.

XYZ Films will executive produce the untitled documentary and will be in charge of worldwide sales.

Production will begin late this summer in Ibiza. The location is well suited considering the socialite spends a majority of her time there. In fact, Hilton earns up to $347,000 per hour when DJing on the island, Paper magazine reported.

This project will show Hilton discussing the things that made her famous and reflecting on how the spotlight has helped contribute to the person she is today. It will also examine the impact Hilton’s image has made on young females today.

Don Argott and Sheena Joyce will be co-directing the film together.

“Paris Hilton is a modern day-Marilyn Monroe — beautiful, iconized, world famous, shaped by mass media and misunderstood,” Argott and Joyce told The Hollywood Reporter. “We are thrilled to work with Paris to explore her complicated relationship with the public, the press and the politics that shape our perception of a modern celebrity.”
