Lindsay Lohan

Dumped from Film

4/24/2010 1:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0422-lindsay-lohan-ex-tmz-01Lindsay Lohan was axed from a movie because she's not "bankable" -- this according a source connected with the production of the flick.

Lindsay was slated to star in "The Other Side," a movie about a grad student working on a deserted island.

David Michaels, the writer/director, tells TMZ, "Our team simply chose to move on from Lindsay and we'll soon be announcing a replacement."

But sources connected with the film tell us the people financing the film were skittish about relying on Lindsay.

The movie also stars Woody Harrelson, Giovanni Ribisi, Dave Matthews and Alanis Morissette.

And there's this twist ... at one point Brittany Murphy was attached to the movie.

Lindsay's rep had no comment.

BTW -- Lindsay was out at Chateau Marmont and Trousdale last night. Photo of her leaving below. Not too difficult to understand where Mr. Michaels was coming from.

Lindsay just needs a good role, like a boozing housewife screaming at her kid in the supermarket. Or some loser's girlfriend helping him rob a liquor store so they can get money to buy crack cocaine.. Or trailer park trash whose husband is a welder who loses his job so they get in a big fight after they spend the last of their money on beer. She's prime for these types of roles.

Target to Donate 25 High End Computers to Nashville, Memphis Disabled Vets After Impulsive Dolly Parton Phone Request (NASHVILLE) Minneapolis-based Target Corp. announced today that it would donate 25 brand new high end computers to disabled vets in the Nashville and Memphis regions as the result of a spur of the moment phone call from Queen of Country Dolly Parton. Parton says she made the "impulsive" phone request after reading an article in the New York Daily News outlining the unmet needs...Gannett Foundation said it would match the donation

Hey Dina, do you see that your daughter has a problem now? Pretty sad it will have to take her getting fired followed by no work offers at all to get Mommy to see she needs help...and only because that means Dina doesn't get paid either!! Pathetic!

Well Lindsay you are going to have to find another way to make a living. No one is going to hire you because no one wants to see you, Maybe your father can start his own production company and make you his main star.
Lindsay you are all washed up at 23. I give six more months and she'll be homeless and broke. She turned out to be one piece of s*hit and that's her good point.

Who is this never-heard-of director with a C list cast and a D list script that's going straight to DVD anyway? He's been saying this film is about to start production for 3 years now, and Lindsay isn't the first actor to drop by the wayside either! LOL If his investors are worried about risking their money... well um, they should be by now! They got bamboozled. IF this movie ever gets it's going to be a straight to DVD bust anyway.



Meanwhile Lindsay just finished filming her role in Machete. A major motion picture directed by Robert Rodriguez and distributed by 20th Century Fox. It'll be released in Sept. It's based on the 2 minute fake trailer in Grindhouse that was so popular they're actually making the movie. It stars Danny Trejo, Michelle Rodriguez, Jessica Alba, Robert De Niro, Cheech Marin, Jeff Fahey, Steven Seagal, Don Johnson, Rose McGowan etc, etc. And yes Lindsay Lohan! And you know what? Despite all the trash talk that she can't show up for work she did just that and was the consummate profession actor. Everyone connected with the production has had nothing but good things to say about her performance AND work ethic. As a matter of fact despite the chaos of her personal life she has always been nothing but professional on set! There's a reason you've never heard any gossip about and her being late on set, not showing up, being a diva or any other sort of nonsense on ANY production she's worked on. The girls personal life might be a bit messy but she's always been the consummate professional when it comes to her acting career. She's no diva and has always had good work ethic, even in the last few years with her personal problems she's always professional on set.

She needs to completely fail to show people that you can't live like that and be successful. She is a self inflicted train wreck who has had multiple opportunities to turn it around and refuses. I don't know if she stole the watch, but if she did a couple of years in prison may do her good.

@gimmeabreak
Are you serious???? What about the letter written by James G. Robinson, CEO of Morgan Creek Productions, about her behavior on the set of Georgia Rules?!?!??! Late to the set, holding up production, not showing up at times!!! You have to be a Lohan...
