Paris Jackson's on-screen debut is fast approaching with the release of Amazon Studio's Gringo set for release on March 9. The film, which details a shady group of self-invested drug pushers who take a trip to Mexico for a big score, shared a new trailer today (Mar. 8) that features a glimpse of Jackson's acting chops.

The 19-year-old plays a flirtatious criminal named Nelly trying to convince a local music store employee, Miles (Harry Treadaway), to head down to Mexico and bring some pills back.

In the clip, Nelly tries to convince Miles to take the deal, playing on a sexual tension and offering him $20,000. "It's just a couple pills from Monty's friend at some lab so he can figure out what's in it and make his own. All you gotta do is bring em back, it'll be easy. Plus, it's a free trip to Mexico," she says playfully. 

Gringo is directed by Nash Edgerton who also plays a role in the film, the cast includes Charlize Theron, Amanda Seyfried, David Oyelewo, and Thandie Newton.
