Lindsay Lohan and a porn star are cast in Bret Easton Ellis' The Canyons

06.12.2012

Bret Easton Ellis is crazy popular this week. First, he gets attention for throwing his name into the hat for FIFTY SHADES OF GREY. Now he's announced some rather interesting casting, not to mention attention grabbing.

Ellis announced via Twitter that his partially fan funded film, THE CANYONS now had two leads, "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..."

Lohan and a porn star. Yes, James Deen has starred in a butt ton of adult films. He played Egon in THIS AIN'T NO GHOSTBUSTERS XXX and Moe in SIMPSONS: THE XXX PARODY and some other titles I can't name on here. Deen has actually been attached since January.

Lohan will play, "Tara, formerly a model, now arm candy, is “beautiful and withdrawn.” She has spirit and intelligence but somewhere along the way she has sold her pride for the material comforts Christian can provide." Deen plays Christian, "a handsome, fit, a power player and major manipulator. He lives off a trust fund which pays for a house on the beach and dabbles in such avocations as film producing. But mainly it pays for his hedonistic life style. Christian enjoys setting up three-ways and filming them. Yet, despite his philandering ways, he is possessive about his current live-in girlfriend, Tara."

TAXI DRIVER scribe Paul Schrader will be directing Ellis' script. Three other leading roles have yet to be cast in the thriller about, "five twenty-something's quest for power, love, sex and success in 2012 Hollywood."

Titles can mislead.....

I haven't read the article, but before I do I just thought that I should mention that when I saw the title I was thinking that it was a female porn star. Oh well, I just read the article... I'm not sure, but I don't think it will be a great film.

Nice, I hope she actually goes the full way to being a pornstar instead of an actor. Doesn't seem that farfetched.

NOOOOO!

I LOVE BRET EASTON ELLIS! He's my favorite author and I've loved following him on Twitter and hearing his thoughts and ideas for the film, but this is bad news for me. Everything Lohan touches nowadays turns into shit.

Paul Schrader?

One of the finest writer-directors of his generation is attached to this project? Hmm I'm conflicted...

oh hey look

it's that guy that choke-fucks everything that breathes. No really, true story.

Weirdest news in a long time I gotta say. But to tell the truth the movie doesn't sound interesting to begin with, and Lohan's involvement is more of a turn off than a turn on for me... and now this guy's involvement... another turn off. I really have absolutely no desire to see this guy try to play a character in a real movie.

Wow

If someone were to show me those photos and ask who the porn star was, pretty sure I would have gotten it wrong...
