News__ The Canyons Starring Lohan

October 10, 2012 | By

Lindsay Lohan, grindhouse style

Written by Bret Easton Ellis and directed by Paul Schrader, The Canyons is a neo-noir thriller set in Los Angeles. Yes, the minds behind American Psycho and Taxi Driver decided to take a chance on Lindsay Lohan. She plays Tara who's "sweet as sin." They also cast porn star James Deen--"a 'huge' new talent."

According to the film's synopsis, The Canyons is about Hollywood 20-somethings who get wrapped up in the dark world of sex and mind games. Lindsay Lohan has obviously been method acting for the past few years preparing for this role.

A few more interesting facts about The Canyons: it was largely funded by Kickstarter, American Apparel provided the wardrobe and Broken Social Scene's Brendan Canning did the score. This could be a new cult indie flick, or a complete disaster. Unfortunately, we'll have to wait until next year, when it's released, to find out.

In the meantime, check out the trailer for The Canyons below.
