Paris Jackson is growing up -- and ready to go Hollywood.

The late Michael Jackson's 13-year-old daughter has been cast in her first feature film, Lundon's Bridge and the Three Keys.

After British paper The Sun reported the casting news, the flick's official website (featuring professional headshots of Paris) confirmed that the pop star's eldest will headline the oddball cast of the underwater fantasy flick.

Her castmates include Larry King and wife Shawn King, N Sync's Joey Fatone and Love Boat alum Ted Lange.

Based on fantasy novels by Dennis H. Christen, Jackson plays Lundon O'Malley; the plot involves a dolphin turned into a human, a teenage boy who morphs into a dragonfly and a jellyfish queen who changes into an evil fairy godmother.

Profits from the film -- principal shooting has just begun -- will go towards funding the U.S. school system. Michael Jackson, who died at age 50 in June 2009, famously became a child star when he and his brothers burst on the music scene in the early 1970s as the Jackson Five.
