Los Angeles - Paris Hilton has been compared to a "modern day-Marilyn Monroe" by the directors of a new documentary about her life.

The 35-year-old socialite is producing the "unflinching, authorised documentary" with 9.14 Pictures and XYZ Films. Directors Don Argott and Sheena Joyce insist their subject is "misunderstood" by the public.

They told the Hollywood Reporter: "Paris Hilton is a modern day-Marilyn Monroe - beautiful, iconised, world famous, shaped by mass media and misunderstood. 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."

The untitled documentary will begin filming in Ibiza later this summer and is being introduced to buyers at the Cannes film market this week.
