Lindsay Lohan’s new patrons are tied to cocaine smuggling, contract killings

wenn20990038

Last week we discussed how Lindsay Lohan had flown from London to Utah, just so she could do a press conference “announcing” her new project. First of all, that’s highly (operative word!) unusual because Sundance is not really where you go to get advanced buzz on a film that is months away from production. Second of all, it’s funny because Lindsay still likes to pretend she’s A-list, and even though it was a “press conference,” Lindsay refused to take ANY questions. Anyway, her new film is called Inconceivable, and she was joined in Park City by at least one of the film’s producers, who spoke as if he had just gotten the best beej of his life.

So, what’s the problem? Oh, nothing really. It’s just that the money behind this “film” is soaked in blood money and cocaine. Because of course it is.

Lindsay Lohan will be just fine if her reality-TV career on Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network crashes and burns. She is set to star in a low-budget movie being financed by a pair of convicted cocaine dealers who are accused of orchestrating a contract killing in Moscow.

Lohan was partying into the wee hours at the Sundance Film Festival last week with her lawyer David Feldman at the pop-up Bungalow 8 in Park City, Utah.

The late nights are further evidence that Winfrey is not getting the heartwarming story of recovery and redemption she was hoping for when she signed Lohan to the eight-episode show in August after Lohan’s latest stint in rehab.

But LiLo’s backup plan is “Inconceivable,” produced by Randall Emmett and George Furla, whose 70 credits include “2 Guns,” “Lone Survivor,” “Alex Cross,” “Broken City,” “The Tomb” and “Righteous Kill.”

Emmett and Furla have $525 million in financial backing from Remington Chase and Stefan Martirosian, whose backgrounds, according to LA Weekly, include “convictions for cocaine trafficking; ties to the Russian oil business, the Armenian government and the African diamond trade; and stints as federal informants.”

“Most disturbing are allegations that they orchestrated a contract killing in Moscow — allegations that the Moscow police took seriously enough to investigate,” the exhaustively researched story said.

“Perfect combo for Lindsay,” laughed one Hollywood veteran.

Lohan sourced the script for “Inconceivable” and will be credited as one of the producers of the $6 million movie. According to a press release from Emmett/Furla Films, she’ll play Katie, “a young woman on a journey to reclaim something that she’s lost.” Her career, perhaps?

The money guys are tied to cocaine smuggling, despots and dictators, blood diamonds and snitching on their friends (the black guy did it!). Yes, it does sound perfect for Lohan. The only things missing are A) a partridge in a pear tree and B) an international call girl scheme. What do you want to bet that the international call girl scheme has yet to be revealed and that’s how they came across Lohan? Yeah.

    “Patrons”. Is that what they’re calling it nowadays.

  2. Faye says:

    I am SHOCKED. Shocked, I tell you! To discover that our sweet innocent Lindsay is associating with some less than solid citizens? How can this be?

  3. Garrett says:

    I can see why she was so eager to do this movie.

  4. doofus says:

    “Incontheeeevable!”

    sorry, all I can hear is Vizzini when I read that word.

  5. Patricia says:

    I have serious doubts that this movie will ever come to fruition. Remember all the hubbub about LL playing Linda Lovelace, and that never happened? Humiliating for her. Well, it should have been but we all know she doesn’t get humiliated.
    I recently saw the Lovelace film with Seyfried, who was very good, but I kept thinking what a great role it would have been for LL if she could have gotten her crap together and actually done it to her best ability. There was a time when she would have been wonderful in a role like that. All is lost for this tragic mess.

    • Leah says:

      It wasn’t the same movie. There were two lovelace projects, the one Seyfried did was not the one Lohan was tied too.
      As for her career, it may not look good but you never know. I don’t have high hopes for this movie though that production movie company doesn’t generally make very many good movies.

    • ctkat1 says:

      Or all of the press releases when she was going to play Victoria Gotti in that Gotti film, which never got made. This is what she does now- she plans press announcements for independent films that never get made. This is her “career” now.

  6. QQ says:

    I, For one, didnt see this coming!!

    titled Arabs running a call girl situation? Sure, Gross Euros in Cannes? Totes! Beverly Hills Surgeons with more money than sense offering freebies for her lips and The Curious Case of Alli Lohan? DUH! Druggies with Money? Aint that like all her “friends”?

    But Contract Killings? THAT I did not expect

  7. Jen says:

    Ok, Lindsay is a loser and all of that, but to tie to her to that stuff is stupid. Why not go after Mark Wahlberg and Bruce Willis, who have each starred in like five movies produced by those people?

  8. blue marie says:

    Oh wow, that’s disgusting, even for her. You know, at one time I would like to have seen her make a come back, now all I want to see is her going away. All this mess will not end well.

  9. TheCountess says:

    I really just can’t drum up any outrage/interest in this one anymore. I cut her slack for a long time, given the toxic parenting situation, but at twenty-seven, well, by now we’re just counting down to the inevitable overdose. There are far too many other people genuinely trying to put their lives in turnaround deserving of sympathy for us to bother with Linds at this point.

  10. Jupiter says:

    *yawn*
    over her. let her self implode and be done with it!

  11. Mia4S says:

    Shady money is not new in Hollywood. The question here for me is, well, that’s a legitimate list of films. Not all hits by any means and not very good, but legitimate. So why suddenly finance a no-budget, likely straight to DVD for Lilo?….actually I’m not sure I want to know the answer to that.

  12. Dizzle says:

    She always flashes the peace sign in pictures. This annoys me highly and I don’t know why.

  13. Renee says:

    Lindsay and her hair extensions will live longer than everyone. In her 70s she’ll still be whining “I’m ready for my close up, Mr. Tarantino!” But no one will be listening.

  14. Bread and Circuses says:

    You know which currency she used to get the part. **squelching noises**

    You know which currency they’re going to pay her in. **snorrrrt**

  15. The Original G says:

    Uh, money laundering or tax write off.

    For many years there was a cartel of Canadian dentists who purposely invested in Canadian made films that were guaranteed to to flop for a huge tax advantage. It ended here, but somewhere…………

  16. Size Does Matter says:

    LiLo doesn’t look awful in these pics, but the skin on her face seems…thick? Immobile? Sort of mask-like similar to Madonna at the Grammy’s (but Madonna looked and sounded like she is recovering from a horrible illness or injury or is heavily medicated or all of the above). Is this what fillers do?
