Lindsay Lohan went to Sundance to pretend she’s A-list & announce a ‘project’

111730PCN_Soho13

This ^^ is a photo of Lindsay Lohan exiting a “sex shop” restaurant a few nights ago in London. Lindsay spent the better part of two weeks in London… for no apparent reason. I mean, she was hooking up with some British hustler/model type (who was like 21 years old) and she was partying and clubbing, but she had no real business in London. She even called the police for escorts wherever she was going, even if she only had to walk a few feet outdoors. Lindsay’s Weave Manager (God knows what her title really is) told Radar that Lindsay was “partying hard” in London and that Lindsay only wants the really cheap weaves. You can read that story here.

Meanwhile, Lindsay finally left London and now she’s in Utah for Sundance. Buzzfeed had some of Lohan’s portraits here – they’re raving about how “good” she looks. Lindsay came to Sundance to ANNOUNCE a project. Maybe that’s why she was in London, to “get financing” for something. Cough. Anyway, note all of the shade in this AP story:

With a film crew capturing every moment, Lindsay Lohan made a high-profile debut at the Sundance Film Festival, announcing a new film and a “fresh start.” The 27-year-old, who is attempting a comeback after well-documented battles with drugs and legal troubles, came to the independent cinema showcase Monday to say she will produce and star in a film called “Inconceivable,” set to start shooting in March.

A crew from OWN, which is airing a reality series about Lohan, filmed the actress’s news conference. Reporters were told that if they asked personal questions, they would be escorted out. Most performers and producers at Sundance have films showing at the festival and don’t come just to announce a planned production — those are usually announced through news releases. But producer and financier Randall Emmett, who sat beside Lohan, said Sundance is “just a special place for us to announce this film.” He called Lohan “one of the greatest young actresses of her generation.”

Lohan, who emerged from her latest rehab stint last year and remains on probation for a necklace theft and for lying to police about a car crash, said she is grateful to be at Sundance and back in the movie business.

“I’ve never had the honor of coming here before … to bring something to the table, which is starting fresh for me,” said Lohan, smiling broadly. “And I’m filming my Oprah docu-series right now, so I get to that to the people who have been watching that as well. It’s a nice change to be back among people that are in the industry that I’ve been in since I was a kid.”

She described the film as a psychological thriller about a woman trying to reclaim something she lost, adding that she “related to the character in a lot of ways.”

Emmett said Lohan found the script and insisted they make it together.

“She read the script, she called, she said, ‘We’re making this movie, are you in or out?’” he recalled. “I said, ‘I’m in.’”

Lohan will also help select the director and cast the film, he said, adding that he expects a director to be announced next week. Emmett said moviegoers “are going to really be shocked when they see Lindsay take this role on.” Lionsgate will release the film, he said.

Though Lohan served as an executive producer on her universally panned 2013 film “The Canyons,” her producing role is even larger this time around.

“It’s therapeutic for me to throw myself into something that really excites me and something that I love to do so much,” she said. “There’s nothing better than having seen all of your ideas and thoughts that you’ve been thinking about to come to fruition and to share that with people. I think that’s why I’ve always loved making movies so much. So it’s nice to be able to have another position in the film rather than just showing up and being on the set.”

No director or co-stars have been announced, but Lohan already has plenty of ideas.

“I even approached Juliette Lewis and was emailing some other people,” she said.

And she has a dream co-star: “I don’t know if she would do it, but I would die if she did: Jessica Lange.”

Ooooh. Good lord, when will “producers” stop accepting beejs as a down payment? This film sounds like an utter disaster and I seriously doubt it will ever get made. But that’s not the point, right? The point is that Lindsay flew to Sundance and that people took her photo and gave her some attention. And that she still thinks she’s A-list.

    I cannot help it but I would really like to see her get her shit together.

  2. Tapioca says:

    Unless “Inconceivable” is about special forces operatives being sent back in time to prevent Michael Lohan ever impregnating his wife, I’m not interested…

  3. AmandaPanda says:

    to be fair, the “sex shop” restaurant is la bodega negra, and it’s awesome (albeit overpriced) and not sketchy at all

    in re all other matters, EWWWWWWW.

  4. lassie says:

    When I think about Lohan, which is seldom, the adjective that comes to mind is ‘crusty’. She needs someone to come along and pick the shell of skank off of her.

  5. dorothy says:

    I bet Robert Redford is fuming. Sundance used to be a movie industry event. Now, people like Lohan, Paris Hilton and all the other has-beens, wanna-be’s and trolls come.

    Sad, their presence cast such a cheap shadow over what used to be a intellectual, creative festival.

  6. Allie says:

    I am still in love with that green coat.

  7. Amelia says:

    “He called Lohan ‘one of the greatest young actresses of her generation.’”
    AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

  8. Wiffie says:

    I like her green coat.

    There. I was nice. Can I go now?

  9. Shauna says:

    Is her Oprah reality show on already?

  10. Patricia says:

    I have to say, she really DOES look good in those shots from sundance. She has been looking much better since rehab. I think she went into rehab and got off of whatever one of her many drugs was destroying her looks. I can’t bring myself to believe that she’s sober, but she’s no longer on whatever drug was making her face bloat and melt off her skull.

  11. Jacqueline says:

    Who was the “we” who were going to make this film if he didn’t commit?? And I can hardly believe all of the thinly veiled threats she made at him! If Lohan knew where I lived, I’d burn my house down and fake my own death.

  12. Jupiter says:

    I think that saying she is one of the best actresses of her generation is a bit of a stretch.
    She’s had way more flops than good movies. Did she have potential? hell yes….but her drunken, drug induced antics have over rode any credibility. I hope she does get her shit together, however, I doubt it. She doesn’t seem to want to want to even give REAL sobriety a chance by constantly placing herself in temptations way. Good luck Blohan. You’ll need it.

  13. Green Is Good says:

    Man, Sundance has really turned into a cheap-shit, low class joke if the likes of Hohan and Wonky McValtrex are there merely to just be seen by the pappz. I’m amazed none of the Kartrasshians have shown up to leave their stink all over Utah.

  14. Stef Leppard says:

    “She thinks she’s still A-list.”

    I’m sorry, was she ever A-list? She starred in Mean Girls and Herbie Fully Loaded (plus some other forgettable romcoms or whatever). And she’s not a good actress!! I’ve never understood why some people think she’s so amazing. Her “acting” was so transparent in anything I’ve ever seen her in.

  15. Leah says:

    I wish her the best as a human being but ” one of the greatest actresses of her generation”? I wish these people wouldn’t do this hyperbole. She is a former child star in desperate need of career redemption. She is not a proven great actress in any shape or form. And due to her extensive clubbing she is lagging well behind the people she came up with such as Keira Knightely, Anne Hathaway,Carey Mulligan et all. Even the people way younger than her, see Mia Wasikowski, Jennifer Lawrence, Saroise Ronan has more claim to the great actress tag than her. This makes me think its just another case of stunt casting on this producers behalf. They all talk this talk and then they throw her under the bus when the project is over. If she really wants to make a comeback she needs to work with someone more serious with artistic credibility that can really keep her on a tight leash. Like darren aronofsky who took on Mickey Rourke, payed him peanuts and really made him work for it. All of her projects seem exploitative. Its sad actually.

  16. swack says:

    Okay, my question is: Did they film Lindsay when she was out partying?

  17. J9 says:

    Her constant non-stop clubbing after getting out of rehab is a clear indication of how hard she is working to get her shit together.

  18. Ruyana says:

    Okay. Does the movie come after she re-starts her music career and writes her book, or before? Announcing a project (this is the third I’ve read of) does not make it happen. Work does, and Lielow is most certainly not familiar with work – at least that particular type of work.

    Apparently she hasn’t heard the old saying, “When the horse is dead, get off.”

  19. The Girl Who Would Be King Of The Popes says:

    Cracktasia, I presume?

  20. Tara says:

    Jessica Lange? Hahaha! GOOD LUCK, crackhead.

  21. OhMyMy says:

    Oprah called in some favors for that reality show stunt.

    I thought HBO was giving her a series since they were so impressed with her work on Eastbound. That wasn’t a lie, was it????

  22. St says:

    That poor future director. Well you know there are lot of unemployed actors and directors. I’m sure Lohan and that shady producer will find some F-listers who will agree to participate.

    At least it will be fun to watch shooting, read about scandals during shooting and then finally to see how bad it will be and how it will be trashed by critics. But how will we see it? You know with Canyons they hoped that her tabloid fame will translate into interest and that some people would show up just to see how bad it is. That did not happed and it tanked even in limited release.

    This time no one will get that future movie even to limited release. I guess they will try to push it to some festival. And then to DVD. But how can it be shot? Everyone remembered that last time fiasco. She needs to have some insurance or something.

    The most hilarious part was the name dropping. As if… Did she call Brad or Leo? Or Angelina?

  23. shellybean says:

    …because everyone at Sundance was just waiting, full of anticipation, for Lindsay to sweep in and announce her new project.
    *snort*
    I doubt this film will even get made. And if it does there will be lots of drama on her end, for sure.

  24. magpie says:

    If this ever gets made (which it probably won’t), it’s going straight to DVD. Love how they’ve announced that Lionsgate will release the film.

  25. BobbieFisher says:

    I have to tell you guys – if you look up this production company that’s financing this vanity project for a dumb narcissist – it was bought by some Arab men. It’s an Arab financed company – which means all that “work” in Dubai paid off for the hooker!

  26. Maria says:

    Hey, at least she’s back to her natural and prettier hair color. It was always a shame that she kept bleaching her hair blond when she had such pretty red hair. It ain’t much, but it’s something, eh?
