Lindsay Lohan is working with an adult film star and Bret Easton Ellis

By / 06.12.12

Lindsay Lohan is a menace to public safety who contributes almost nothing to society and can’t even make it to the set of her crappy Lifetime  movie without crashing her car and

Easton Ellis, who’s taken to abbreviating his own name “BEE” on Twitter, announced the casting himself:

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…

The project, which actually began on Kickstarter, described itself thusly:

The Canyons is a contemporary thriller written by Bret Easton Ellis (Less Than Zero, American Psycho, etc.) to be directed by Paul Schrader (Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, Affliction, Auto-Focus, etc.)  The Canyons documents five twenty-something’s quest for power, love, sex and success in 2012 Hollywood.

The film is a collaborative effort stewarded by former Lionsgate producer Braxton Pope as a response to the changing landscape of the film industry. Pope, Ellis and Schrader are partly financing the film themselves through Pope’s new company Sodium Fox in order to maintain complete creative control of the distinct source material.  According to Schrader, “We all experienced the frustrations of financing and institutional censorship. But now, with advances in digital photography and distribution, we can tell a story in the manner we choose. Movies are changing and we’re changing with it.” [Kickstarter]

As Derek Zoolander might say… sounds cool. Though it should be noted, the description mostly lists Paul Schrader’s writing credits, his directing credits aren’t quite as impressive. Of course, pretty much anything is less impressive than Taxi Driver and Raging Bull. Meanwhile, I don’t know who Braxton Pope is, but he sounds like a guy who plays lacrosse and makes fun of people for being poor.
