Lohans Mulling Over Legal Action Against Movie

12/28/2010 11:07 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Producers of "Dogs in Pocketbooks" -- a movie pretty clearly based on Lindsay Lohan's wild ride -- may have to open their own pocketbooks, because the Lohan clan is considering legal action.

Lydia Hearst

As we told you yesterday, "Dogs" is based on a spoiled brat prone to alcohol and cocaine binges, reckless driving, failed rehab attempts, career-ending partying and ruthless hangers-on. 

Lydia Hearst, Lindsay's spitting image, will star in the movie.

Dina Lohan says the new movie "is definitely based on Lindsay's likeness," and "We have a very strong case.  It's shadowing E*TRADE" -- referring to Lohan's suit against the online brokerage firm which produced a commercial featuring a baby Lindsay.

Now we've learned Lohan's family lawyer, Stephanie Ovadia, has been contacted by the Lohan family and it seems Ovadia thinks they have a case:  "They are again using her likeness without her being compensated."

Ovadia adds, "Not only that but they are advertising the fact that they are using her likeness."

Dina warns, "Anyone bringing negativity will be dealt with accordingly."

Just Sayin'...    

The best thing that could come after a sober Lindsay would be parents that care more for Lindsay's well being, rather than what they have been doing: sucking her soul dry at the same time that they are doing the same to her bank accounts. Lindsay...for the love of God, PLEASE FIRE YOUR PARENTS!

Man, you knew that was going to happen.

Lohan has got no movie career. She screwed that up big time and she knows it. She's not that good of an actress and no one wants her. Mean Girls what was that 7-8 years ago. She is so unprofessional so unreliable and risky she can't get insurance. She screwed that up all by herself, her clothing line is not doing well at all.

Hey, the saving grace is that she doesn't have to pay 29k per every 30 days at Betty Ford.

I guess the only thing she can do is try and bilk money from lawsuits. Good Luck. Dina try getting a job.

Exactly...Milk-a-what?

The movie isn't titled "Hollywood Trailer Trash Lesbian Coke Whore", so it's doubtful that it is really about Lohan.

Suing everybody is the only way the turdhans can get money.
Soon no one in Hollywood will have nothing to do with them. Hopefully they will disappear off the face of the planet.

Of course 'mom' is going to spearhead this and sue. 'Mom' needs money and her name in the press.

Lindsay, you are stripping all credibility of Betty Ford.. They need to just boot your ass - but we know they want what money you have left. I'm sure when it's gone the Sheriff's will be escorting you off the property - hopefully to jail where you can hang with your own type. Go sue team..That means you admit to your likeness being a waste of life..show some dignity, do you really want to claim this.

Lindsey's mom is such a money hungry person. She's nothing but a pimp for her kids, as long as she was getting her money she didn't care what her kid was doing. Now that the gravy train has slowed she's so concerned about how her daughter is potrayed!
Give me a break!

@ Comment 6, you are so right. The thing is Lindsay hasn't been making much money so they really do need to bring in some so I guess they figure suing the movie people will do it.

"They are again using her likeness without her being compensated" WHAT this is the way the girl looks and she doesn't look that much like Lindsay.

Money, Money, Money

Pardon me, Skankahns, but I thought that satire was protected??? Or has your skanky family made new laws via your sue-happy skankiness?

Lindsay needs some cash for some cocaine and Grey Goose. I like how she reconginized all the garbage of life was based on her. Maybe if she just cleaned up her act - she could get a real gig instead of suing to pay for her joke of a rehab. Betty Ford clinic, you are losing your credibility. Perhaps you should sue Lindsay for making a mockery of your establishment or just kick that lily white POS to the curb..
