NEW YORK, Nov. 7 (UPI) -- "Addicted to Fame," a documentary about the making of the late Anna Nicole Smith's movie "Illegal Aliens," is set for release in the United States.
Co-starring John James, Chyna and Gladys Jimenez, the film will be available on iTunes Nov. 27. It will open in select theaters and can be seen via Video On Demand Nov. 30.
Producers of the documentary describe it as "the outrageous, couldn't-make-it-up, rare glimpse into the making of the B-movie 'Illegal Aliens.'"
"Director David Giancola embarks on the project with the intention of making a 'movie that mocks B-movies,' but finds himself mired in an uncontrollable drama brought on by eccentric personalities, tragedy and the madness that is the movie business," a news release said. "'Illegal Aliens' bombed at the box office but the story was the second most-reported of 2007, only after coverage of the Iraq War. With 'Addicted to Fame', Giancola grants the public the first-ever look behind-the-scenes on the set of Anna Nicole Smith's last movie, dubbed by some critics to be 'the worst movie ever made,' starring the most controversial and tragic figure of the 1990s."
Smith, a model and celebrity spokeswoman, died of an accidental drug overdose in 2007. She was 39.
