By now it’s all over the papers… Lindsay’s legal troubles have made her too ‘hot’ to handle – no insurance will bet on her to ever complete a film. INFERNO’S writer-director, Matt Wilder is auditioning new talent, or something.
Who cares? What do you mean who cares? I mention this because of so many juicy injustices and ironies: here’s a film about a doomed and tragic innocent thrust into the sleazy world of X-rated movies, and the actress who was to play her is too ‘unstable’ to play an unstable actress??
Wilder previously said that they were willing to wait for Lohan to fully recover and complete her time, but last month, they decided to just abandon the actress and replace her with Malin Akerman.
The helmer told RadarOnline.com that the production endured many costly delays after waiting for Lohan, but now everything is going fine.
I’m not blaming Wilder, incidentally, just pointing out the awful hypocrisy… if it was Robert Downey Jr. it would be a whole other story… even if it was just a decade or so ago it would be another story, ala Courtney Love playing a fucked up junkie wife in THE PEOPLE VS. LARRY FLYNT!
Clearly a dark film like this is not what an artist in early recovery with a bad relapse habit needs, but damn… Damn the nanny state and the new world order of a nation of gossippy housewives deciding life and death over girls who just want to have fun, and are too young and bold and misguided to employ chauffers on their drinking/coke nights, and hide their rail lines from the press!
Then again, Jeeezus, even Montgomery Clift caught a break once in awhile and could just pop his Demerol in peace. LL is our new martyr on the cross, America has decided to lock her in the attic, like we’re the collective version of Piper Laure in CARRIE. So even though I’ve posted this before, I wish to once more present my awesome collage of Lindsay burning on the stake and having her phoenix like revenge on Seattle:
