Lindsay's Bosses -- We'll Deal with Hijinks

9/25/2010 12:36 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan might have to worry about being sent back to jail next month, but one thing she doesn't have to fret over ... her next movie.

Sources close to the movie "Inferno" -- the Linda Lovelace biopic LiLo is scheduled to star in -- tell TMZ they don't want to lose Lindsay for the part ... so they are going to start scouting locations in Los Angeles and begin shooting in January.

As we first reported, it's going to cost the flick a chunk of change to move from their original location in Louisiana -- but we're told they are willing to spend the dough to keep Lindsay as the lead.

One source tells us, "We're staying [in Los Angeles] -- good for the movie, but also the best way to deal with travel restrictions or other hijinks."

As long as Lindsay is around, hijinks seem unavoidable.

I have to agree with #5... she can't act, and she has no star-power pull... they are dreaming if they think this movie will make any money at all...

My prediction: If this movie ever gets made...It will gross less than the original with Linda Lovelace...tell me you didn't say gross. Love to be at that wrap part and see the gag reel...

No one wants to see the movie.
Who cares about Linda Lovelace?

Why would they want her? The only reason Machete was success was because she wasn't included in the promotions of the movie--she wasn't even invited to the premier. This movie, like the other movies she has been the lead will be a failure.

Match made in heaven. Lilo needs this project to keep the pretense that she has a viable acting career. Inferno people need the free publicity that they can't afford otherwise.

Will it work?

This so-called "movie" must be the biggest joke in Hollywood by now. The movie that never was.

The Linda Lovelace story is not a nice story. It's a turd that can't be polished. Rape, drugs, sadness, death, etc. There is no happy ending either.

This is why no decent actress would take that part. Only someone as damaged as Lindsay would even consider the role.

I'll never watch this movie if they keep this waste of space in it. She thinks there are no consequences in life, and she's above reproach. As far as I'm concerned, she has no fans left.

Why not change the script, Lindsay could play a sleazy drug addicted jail bird, who's only motivation is to garner attention by being a low life!

Take a look at the producer of this porn movie "Inferno" about Linda Lovelace, the 70s porn star. Does this dude look like a typical "D list" porno film guy or what?

The reason the producers want Lindsay for this movie is because she's in a vulnerable spot now because of money problems, lack of mainstream TV/movie roles, she has obvious substance abuse problems, and she's still young and foolish enough to take this movie. They want to exploit Lindsay because of her "name recognition" in order to make some quick money.

This ridiculous Linda Lovelace movie MIGHT make some money overseas on opening night with east European people or the Chinese that just know Lindsay's name or something. It'll probably be a "straight to DVD" release for the U.S.

Lindsay will get paid very little for it and it will ruin her future prospects for movies in the future. She'll get "typecasted" for doing these sleezy 1 star movies and not be able to do more sophisticated roles like other "A list" actresses do. But, who knows, Lindsay is so messed up these days she might not even care. She just wants to party, party, party! The downward spiral will just pick up more speed.

I heard a rumor that they want Peewee Herman to play John Holmes. I wouldn't touch it...if I were him...

I can't imagine how they will get insurance for this pic. Why would they want the aggravation of depending on a substance abuser who should be locked up in rehab for the next 12 months? It makes no sense. If this is true, these people are not only foolish but enablers.

Sounds like maybe this is her "Intro" into porn flicks, so that people can keep making money off her. Way to go Dina, and all the other people in her life. Is Ali next to go the porn way???
