The Canyons, the already infamous Lindsay Lohan movie from the minds of writer Bret Easton Ellis and director Paul Schrader, has been acquired by IFC Films and will premiere day-and-date and on digital platforms in the early summer of 2013. Lohan stars as the girlfriend of a wealthy Hollywood movie producer — played by porn star James Deen — and their relationship ultimately devolves under dark and demanding sexual tension. “I am delighted our film has found an enthusiastic home at IFC,” Shrader said, in a statement. “We envisioned The Canyons as a multi-platform release from the beginning and no company knows that world better than IFC.” READ FULL STORY »

… 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:
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 »
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 controversy — tweeted, “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.

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 »
