The Lindsay Lohan career comeback is in FULL SWING, y’all!! Not only is Lindsay currently filming Bret Easton Ellis film The Canyons after wrapping the Elizabeth Taylor made-for-TV movie biopic Liz & Dick but today we learn that she has signed on to star in another feature film. According to E! News‘s Marc Malkin, L. Lo will star in the upcoming sequel film Scary Movie 5 with none other than Charlie Sheen. Lindsay AND Charlie! That’s TWO TRAINWRECKS for the price of ONE!!!
If you don’t know whether to scream or laugh at Lindsay Lohan sometimes, well…here’s your chance to do both! The comebacking star is going to be in Scary Movie 5, sources exclusively confirm to E! News. Maybe being the next Anna Faris is just what the doctor ordered for Lohan … While no offer had been made to Lohan as of early July, we hear now that she has officially signed on. Her rep said that, “as of right this moment,” she had not inked a deal, but all insiders are in agreement that she is definitely doing the movie. Sources also say that the ever-comebacking Charlie Sheen, despite being uncomfortably killed off in Scary Movie 4, will be back for the next sequel, which is being touted as a complete reboot of the franchise and is due in theaters Jan. 11, 2013. Well, we know what our Christmas wish will be—that Sheen and Lohan share scenes. The studio would not confirm the casting news. Meanwhile, Faris has chosen to freeze her number at four and will not be back for the new film.
LOL! This is … mind-blowing. Lindsay has done very well with comedy in the past (Mean Girls remains the pinnacle of her film career) so it’s possible that she could be very good in this film. That being said, I think Anna Faris is very smart to get the Hell out while the getting is good. Lindsay and Charlie … the mind boggles. Who’s excited for this piece of cinematic brilliance? January 2013 will be here in mere seconds!!
