Watching this clip from Lindsay Lohan's 'The Canyons' will make you feel icky...

… but chances are you’ll do it anyway.

The clip features Lohan as Tara, a fragile young woman who spends two minutes scintillatingly looking for her phone (seriously). Some life is injected into the proceedings when Tara’s volatile boyfriend Christian — played by porn star next door James Deen — suddenly awakens and accuses her of cheating. Violence follows, although the lighting is so dim that you’ll barely be able to see it; there’s also some NSFW language, as should be expected from screenwriter Bret Easton Ellis.

Will The Canyons be the Showgirls of the 20-teens? Make an early judgment for yourself by watching the clip below:


Lindsay Lohan movie 'The Canyons' gets new, over-the-top trailer -- VIDEO

You could be forgiven for thinking this The Canyons trailer, starring Lindsay Lohan, is a parody.

Almost everything about it seems tongue-in-cheek. From the 1950s-esque black-and-white alongside a deep announcer voice declaring, “From the pen of Twitter-obsessed author Bret Easton Ellis” and “directed by the never-nominated director Paul Schrader,” the clip seems designed to let viewers know they anticipate what your reaction will be to this movie — and that they’re in on the joke.

Elsewhere in the over-the-top homage to a different era doubling as a promo for the Kickstarter-funded project, Lohan’s character says “I guess I’d like to keep some parts of my life private.” Even better, her romantic co-star James Deen is announced as “a potent new screen presence” (Deen previously worked in porn).

Intrigued by the movie that’s apparently “a contemporary L.A. noir”? Watch below: READ FULL STORY

Bret Easton Ellis accuses Lindsay Lohan of skipping work

It seems it’s much ado about nothing in the latest chapter of the Lindsay Lohan saga.

Last night, Bret Easton Ellis — himself no stranger to controversytweeted, “Patrick Bateman [from American Psycho, which Ellis wrote] has just headed over to Lindsay Lohan’s hotel to confront her as to why she missed her f–king ADR on ‘The Canyons’ today…” (ADR stands for additional dialogue recording).

Ellis is the screenwriter for The Canyons, Lohan’s new movie about 20-something Los Angeles residents flirting with the dark side of sexual obsession. It’s due in theaters next year.

When reached for comment, Lohan’s publicist told EW: “Lindsay did not miss anything. She has started promoting Liz & Dick and her schedule had to be changed. That’s all.”

Perhaps Lohan will address all the rumors when she sits down with Barbara Walters next month.

Lindsay Lohan, a porn star, and 'American Psycho' author Ellis: Put it all together and you get 'The Canyons' -- TRAILER

A movie trailer billing itself as a “controversial motion picture” starring Lindsay Lohan? Nope, this is not the buzzy Liz & Dick, which stars the actress as Elizabeth Taylor. It’s Lohan’s other (and seeimingly much more) controversial film, The Canyons. The trailer hit the web on Monday.

The Canyons features Lohan and porn actor James Deen as young Los Angelenos discovering the dangers of sexual obsession.

The movie takes place in the present, but this dialogue-free trailer went for the vibe of a campy ’60s thriller. Check it out below: READ FULL STORY

Bret Easton Ellis out of the running for 'Fifty Shades of Grey' screenplay gig

Bret Easton Ellis hasn’t been quiet about his desire to pen the screenplay for the film adaptation of the guilty pleasure novel Fifty Shades of Grey, but now he’s announced that his racy writing dreams will not come true this time around.

Ellis, who authored 1991 novel American Psycho and launched into filmmaking when he wrote the screenplay adapted from his own book The Informers, announced the news via Twitter on Tuesday.

“It’s a very major disappointment to announce that I’ve somehow been taken off the list of possible screenwriters for Fifty Shades of Grey,” he wrote, then continued, “Thanks to the fans for the months of intense support. Your awesome enthusiasm and great suggestions were instructive and meaningful to me.” READ FULL STORY

Bret Easton Ellis bravely volunteers to write 'Fifty Shades of Grey' screenplay

Whether you think Fifty Shades of Grey reads like a fun guilty pleasure or like the subtitles of a bad porno, you have to admit you’re a little curious about how Hollywood aims to translate the slobbery romance and explicit sex in the novel to the big screen. They already have one volunteer to help — one who has plenty of experience with novels about gleeful sexual degradation. Bret Easton Ellis has taken to Twitter to express his interest in penning the screenplay for the book’s big-screen adaptation. He’s even put forward an ideal director: David Cronenberg, with whom he previously worked during the early stages of American Psycho.

Of course, signing one or both of these guys to the project would presumably change the concept from silly bathtub-and-scented-candles reading material to a disturbing examination of social dry rot and anomie. It’s hard to imagine that this will be an easy sell to producers, who won’t want to alienate the built-in audience of female readers they’re hoping to reach. E L James’ novel is the fastest-selling book of the year, after all, and Universal has already doled out millions of dollars for the movie rights.

At the moment, Easton Ellis is currently working on another film which he penned, starring Lindsay Lohan and porn star James Deen. Actually, now that I think of it, maybe he’s already secretly adapting the book as we speak.
