'ADDICTED TO FAME' is the outrageous, couldn't-make-it-up, rare glimpse into the making of the B-movie 'Illegal Aliens', starring the late '90s icon ANNA NICOLE SMITH. 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. '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.
