Lindsay Lohan Cast in The Canyons

Lindsay Lohan’s getting busier with her role in life time movie Liz & Dick and rumours of a role in a Scary Movie, now she’s bagged a starring role in a film about sex and ambition among 20-somethings in Los Angeles.

Producer Braxton Pope says Lohan will star in The Canyons, a film by author Bret Easton Ellis. Paul Schrader, who wrote Taxi Driver and directed American Gigolo, is set to direct the film.

Lohan has finished filming Liz & Dick in which she played Elizabeth Taylor. During that production, she crashed her Porsche into a dump truck and a week later was treated by paramedics for exhaustion and dehydration.  No wonder she’s exhausted, according to her publicist she’s been on the set of The Canyons since last week.

Lohan plays opposite James Deen, who is best known as an adult film star with thousands of movies to his credit. Gus Van Sant also has been cast in the film. Schrader describes the characters as “beautiful people doing bad things in nice rooms.”

The film was part funded via Kickstarter. Here’s the teaser trailer…which just shows a lot of scenery, let us know what you think.
