Lindsey Lohan is doing really well. She will be playing the part of Tara in a contemporary thriller The Canyons, the author of American Psycho, Bret Easton Ellis announced on Twitter with confirmation that the project will enter production next month in Los Angeles.
I am beyond thrilled that James Deen and Lindsay Lohan will be playing the parts of Christian and Tara…Could not have dreamed of a better cast. Lindsay nailed it.
The Kickstarter-funded project, written by Ellis will be directed by Paul Schrader (Auto-Focus, Affliction) and has been described as a contemporary thriller that documents five twenty-somethings’ quest for power, love, sex and success in 2012 Hollywood.
Porn star James Deen is ideal casting choice for the part of Christian, a ‘handsome, fit, a power player and major manipulator’ who lives off a trust fund and ‘enjoys setting up three-ways and filming them.’
Lohan is currently in production on a Lifetime film Liz & Dick, about the life of actress Elizabeth Taylor and her love affair with actor Richard Burton.
Ellis previous was developing The Canyons for television.
