Murphy to be Poor?

Lindsay Lohan, having dropped out of the flick POOR THINGS, has left a space that looks like being filled by Brittany Murphy. I'd love to say that Lohan's loss is Murphy's gain, but I'm not sure anyone gains when you join a film being directed by the dude who made BLONDE AMBITION. Although, that said, Shirley MacLaine, Rosario Dawson and Channing Tatum are all on board already. And that has to count for something. I'm pretty sure there could be a televised national blowjob competition going on and I'd still flick over to see Dawson and Murphy on a screen together, they're so hot. Which, let's face it, is a dirty trick. I guess that's just the way it goes down in Hollywood. POOR THINGS is about two female con artists (MacLaine and Olympia Dukakis) who befriend and then murder homeless men for their insurance policies. It's not exactly Daniel Ocean, but at least there's no foreseeable threat of Capoeira-related escapades or a sub-plot where Brittany Murphy is playing a chick who looks like superstar Brittany Murphy.
Extra Tidbit: Murphy is married to Simon Monjack (FACTORY GIRL).
