Lindsay Lohan Will Play A Porn Star In The Bret Easton Ellis Film ‘The Canyons’

Full Frontal Ahead

Lindsay Lohan continues to film the Lifetime TV made for TV movie Liz & Dick (despite her recent car troubles) but this week we learn that she already has another acting job lined up. Author Bret Easton Ellis has shared the news that Lindsay has won a role in his new film The Canyons alongside a porn actor named James Deen. Apparently, Lindsay will appear full frontally nude in the film … which means, yeah, her career comeback is really in full swing.

She was set to play Deep Throat porn star Linda Lovelace. But months after she was dropped from the film Lindsay Lohan is set to star alongside a bonafide porn actor James Deen. Currently starring as Elizabeth Taylor in the biopic Liz & Dick, Lindsay’s next role will be opposite porn actor Deen, in a film about ‘youth, glamour, sex, and Los Angeles.’ And Lohan who is working hard to revive her fading career will be required to appear naked in the movie. The Canyons has been written by controversial American Psycho author Bret Easton Ellis and plans to reveal the seedy underbelly of LA life not seen in glossy shows such as MTV reality show The Hills. Deen, the porn industry’s Male Performer of the Year has featured in over 4000 X-rated films. Also known as The Ryan Gosling of Porn – Deen will play the lead character Christian, a ‘handsome, fit, a power player and major manipulator’, who ‘enjoys setting up three-ways and filming them’. Last night, Easton Ellis confirmed on Twitter that both Lindsay and Deen were signed up. He tweeted: ‘Shooting THE CANYONS starring James Deen and Lindsay Lohan: July 9-31 in L.A. Could not have dreamed of a better cast. Lindsay nailed it…” says @BretEastonEllis. “I am beyond thrilled.’ The Canyons, previously being developed as a TV series, will be directed by veteran screenwriter Paul Schrader – who wrote Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, and wrote and directed American Gigolo. Porn star Deen’s reaction was somewhat more explicit: ‘Me too!!!!!! Ejaculating is over rated but still pretty damn awesome.’ The independent film will be shot over 20-days on a budget of just $200,000.

Well. Hmmm. I suppose a job is a job but … I’m not really sure that this is the kind of role that is going to win Lindsay respect in Hollywood. Then again, I guess there is something to be said for acting alongside the “Ryan Gosling of porn”. I don’t really understand Lindsay‘s decision to take on a role like this but beggars can’t be choosers. I know many people are counting on her Elizabeth Taylor biopic to restart her failing acting career but I’m not really convinced that it will. Still, I commend her for making the attempt. I can’t say I’m impressed that Lindsay feels the need to take on role where she will appear fully nude alongside a porn star but, then again, she isn’t really known for her good decision-making prowess. All that aside, I’d be lying if I didn’t say I was intrigued by this role. Will it be a hot mess? Possibly. Then again, it could be a gritty indie film that might possibly make Lindsay Lohan cool again. I’m not banking on that actually being the case but … I guess you never know. What do y’all think? Does this sound like a good idea to you?

    I mean, do people think this is 2005 and there are sciprts just laying on her floor? She has to work, the more she works the more reliable she’ll prove to be, she can’t be picky… at least right now she can’t. I don’t think it’s a bad move, indie is the right way for her to go at this point in her career.

    I really love Brett’s books but I really don’t want to see Lindsay’s britney. And “Ryan Gosling of Porn”?, I don’t think so.

    Christian, eh? I have the feeling this may be a 50 Shades of Grey set in LA. ;)

    The movie is being made for $200k? Then she must be getting paid about $20k, which some D level actors make on one episode of television. I don’t see how this will help her at all. The casting notice called for people who would have to “realistically” engage in sexual acts with men and women (aka a soft core film).

    This is not the way to increase the respect of your brand.

    Ugh I am so tired of her flashing her snatch and being a stripper/porn star/nude model…Seeing it over and over is so blah.

    I’ll watch it because James Deen is cute.

    Girl is shameless. If she’s doing a Lifetime movie, that shows you just about how bankable she is… money says stuffs up again as usual. TRAINWRECK, girl will never get better and lives in absolute denial about her life and especially her career.

    @Trent: Your post about Lindsay at this point are getting boring besides the fact that we’re hearing something new about Miss Lohan. All of your post have the same comments and options from you. “This movie looks like it could be good, BUT we shall see if Lindsay can pull this off.” OR “Lindsay looks like she’s doing well, BUT I have my doubts if she can keep it up.” While these can all be somewhat relevant statements when regarding her, it’s the same opinion from you repeated over and over and over and over again. Ok, we get it; you think she’s a train wreck. She looks great in that photo, but it must be the angle. She’s with her family for the holidays, but I’m sure she’s up to no good. Yawn Trent. Your comments are starting to get old, much like snarky Perez’. (I quit reading that site 4 years ago in favor of yours btw)

    how do you go from playing elizabeth taylor to a porn-star? she’s signed for a suicide.

    It’s difficult to say anything different about Lindsay when she is always serving up the same mess. Her career has been derailed by her real life struggles. There hasn’t, until recently, been anything new to report projects. Everything has been “in the works”. We have seen a finished product yet. Maybe there will be something new to say when we do, but until then, it’s just the same old same old LiLo.
