Lindsay Lohan -- I Wasn't Fired, I Quit!

11/20/2010 5:35 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan made the choice to leave her latest film project, not the other way around ... sources close to LiLo tell TMZ.

It's been reported today that Lindsay was fired from the planned Linda Lovelace biopic "Inferno." But sources who have spoken to Lindsay within the last hour tell us Lindsay decided to drop out from the film so that she could focus more on her recovery.

We're told Lindsay felt the project no longer felt right -- but that she and the director, Matthew Wilder, remain on good terms and hope to work together in the future.

UPDATE: A rep for Lindsay adds that Lindsay is "concentrating on her recovery" and calls the decision to leave the film "mutual."

Nice try Lohan. What after her 6-7 probation violations...Im sure the producers were not going to wait around. Lohan was fired before she was even hired. NICE TRY ON THE I QUIT.

Jean Harlow had plenty of small roles like "The Public Enemy" starring my favorite actor James Cagney, to start out with. All they have to do is rebuild her up.

"What sane actress would want this on her resume, other than somebody who is already in porn?"

Correctamundo. Which is why, as I said earlier, Sasha Grey will soon be announced. And then the film will never get made.

Though I'm no big fan of Lohan, Wilder really is a leech of the highest order, and he was only trying to use her name to get his awful script financed. It's no surprise that he was constantly giving quotes to various sites to grab attention. The guy only has one other credit... for a movie so bad it was never released!

Fact: Director Matthew Wilder has been trying to get this movie made for years and has gone through numerous other actresses.

Fact: The movie currently has no financing.

Fact: Lohan never even signed a contract. If you don't have a contract, you can't be fired.

Fact: Wilder was constantly quote-whoring to websites in a sad bid to get attention for the film.

Fact: Wilder has been meeting with Sasha Grey to get her to accept the lead. Grey even twittered about it!

Fact: The movie is never gonna happen.

The contract includes a 100% Sobriety Clause. They felt comfortable formal probation would keep her sober, but obviously it didn’t. Additionally everyone knows what’s going to happen Feb 25 when she's off formal probation

There is a fine line in Hollywood. Bad publicity can create a buzz for your film if the "actor" has been naughty. However, if you can't get anyone to insure the actor because they are such a risk to the production, then you don't have them in your film. PERIOD. Mr. Downey came very close to that problem a few years ago. Luckily he pulled himself together and is no longer considered "a risk". Ms. Lohan has continued to misbehave, use drugs, thumb her nose at the legal system, and drink... and in the eyes of "the money people" is too high of a risk to have attached to their project.
High insurance = find another "actress".

I don't care who pulled the trigger on this movie-just so happy
that this nightmare is over.This crap movie would have been career suicide for Lindsay and she is better off without it.
As long as she stays out of trouble and keeps a clear head, Lindsay will have a huge comeback. If Charlie Sheen is still working then there is hope for anyone.What has she done that is so awful to deserve all this hatred and vile? Just becuse she's an addict? Come on people, everyone deserves a second chance, even Lindsay.

Oh, Matthew Wilder, I have a middle finger just for you. You tried to expoit Lindsay when she was at her most vulnerable. I equate you with a man who rapes a drunk girl at a party and acts like you did her a favor. Your plan failed-you sleazebag jerk.
You are looking great Lindsay, here's to better 2011!
