Kim Kardashian’s Paris robbery story may be heading to the big screen, according to a report by Variety.
French comic book artist and filmmaker Joann Sfar is co-writing the script, and it’s set to be directed by Marion Festraëts.
Sfar says the film will be a comedy exploring the themes of feminism, masculinity, and patriarchy in today’s society.
According to Variety, the film will be called “Fashion Week,” and the plot of the movie will entail a group of older thieves who plan to rob a famous influencer during her stay in Paris and find themselves involved in the whirlwind of Fashion Week in the French capital.
The movie is reportedly not meant to be a direct retelling of Kardashian’s experience, and it allegedly does not have any direct involvement with the reality star herself.
But, as you may recall, Kim K was robbed at gunpoint back in October 2016 in her Paris luxurious hotel suite. A group of armed robbers dressed as policemen broke into her room and bound and gagged her, while stealing over $10 million worth of jewelry.
In a ’Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ episode that aired on March 2017, Kardashian revealed that the robbers duct-taped her mouth, and she thought they were going to rape her and shoot her dead. “They had the gun up to me, and I knew that was the moment, they’re just totally gonna shoot me in the head,” she said as she retold the story.
Sfar tells Variety that the film will touch on, “Violence against women, the relationship between the very rich people and the less rich, the world of fashion and the encounter between figures of new and old worlds.”
