Lindsay Lohan may not be able to stop her car from hitting things, but she’s slowly getting her career back on track, and has now joined the cast of The Canyons, along with adult film star James Deen. The flick is a new indie project from director Paul Schrader and writer Bret Easton Ellis.
Bret Easton Ellis announced the casting via his Twitter account, saying “And I am beyond thrilled that James Deen and Lindsay Lohan will be playing the parts of Christian and Tara in THE CANYONS by BEE.” He also added, “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…”
The drama is being financed through a successful Kickstarter campaign, which raised over $150,000. The story follows five twenty-somethings in Los Angeles, as they try to attain power and success. Lindsay Lohan will play Tara and Paul Deen is portraying Christian, although no further details were given regarding the characters. Braxton Pope is producing the indie drama.
