Because oh God no, a movie is being based loosely off of Lindsay Lohan‘s life, proving once and for all that Hollywood no longer gives a shit. Oh, and Lydia Hearst will be playing Lindsay. Who? Yeah, that’s what I thought too.
“Lydia will play a bratty movie goddess in and out of rehab, in trouble with the law, and hounded by greedy agents, predatory paparazzi, off-the-wall stalkers and crazed media — a role obviously based on Lindsay Lohan,” screenwriter Charles Casillo told the New York Post. “I spent a lot of time casting for the right actress for this screwball comedy, but Lydia is perfect.”
Casillo added that the movie was not meant to be mean-spirited towards Lindsay, but a spoof on the modern celebrity obsession. Joan Collins costars as a high-powered agent. SOURCE
On a side note, I’m currently taking bets as to whether or not this movie will see a theatric release. I have 1:5 odds that it’s going straight to DVD, 1:8 that it’s going to be a Lifetime Original movie, and 1:20 that this is going to be released by Vivid video. Any takers?
