Indian director hopes to cast Paris Hilton as Mother Teresa - Yahoo! News
Does he want to guarantee his movie will flop

Who's most likely to see a movie about Mother Teresa? Serious Catholics. Who's most likely to be pissed about Paris Hilton protraying Mother Teresa. Serious Catholics.


The intent is not to do well or not. The intent is to poke a finger in the eye of those who love and respect Mother Theresa.

Either that or he's bluffing entirely and wants someone to notice his film and pony up some money to get it made.

I think the intent is actually to build up publicity for the movie. There is no way she gets the part. But all the free advertising he gets is worth throwing her name out there.

While the point about this being a cheap means of getting publicity is a good one (and most likely correct upon reflection), I still think it's a stupid move.

He's lost all credibility (in my opinion) that this will be a worthwhile movie. While I now know of the existence of this movie, I've prejudged it as not worth seeing. I'm sure I'm not the only one.
