Lindsay Lohan’s moribund film career just can’t seem to escape the last refuge of a discredited actress. Her next film will be a racy adult feature with high-profile porn star James Deen.
In the Paul Schrader-directed movie, “The Canyons,” she will reportedly do full-frontal nudity. How is this going to help her career?
Lohan reportedly wants the part because of Schrader, who directed such classics as “Taxi Driver” and “Raging Bull,” according to E! News. Both films starred Robert De Niro.
Author Bret Easton Ellis, who wrote the film, wants to show the underbelly of Hollywood, and has said the leads will have “to act and be full frontal naked b***ing girls and guys, realistically.”
Ellis announced the casting for his latest endeavor on Twitter. “I am beyond thrilled that James Deen and Lindsay Lohan will be playing the parts of Christian and Tara in THE CANYONS by BEE,” he wrote.
“Could not have dreamed of a better cast. Lindsay nailed it…” he added in apparent reference to her audition.
“The Canyons” follows “five twenty-somethings’ as they search for power, love, sex and success in 2012 Hollywood,” according to the film synopsis.
Lohan is currently at work on a Lifetime television movie based on Elizabeth Taylor’s romance with Richard Burton. She’s also in hot water again over a car crash last weekend that could lead to charges against her.
“The Canyons” will be the first mainstream role for Deen, 25.
