Lindsay Lohan -- Up for a Role in New 'Superman'

2/8/2011 10:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Look! Up in the sky! It's a bird, it's a plane, it's ... Lindsay Lohan?

0206_lindsay_lohan_superman_ex
Sources close to LiLo tell TMZ ... Lindsay's people have had multiple phone conversations within the last few weeks with the people behind the new "Superman" reboot. We're told Lindsay is up for a role in the flick -- and while it isn't Lois Lane, we hear it would be a "major character."

We're told Lindsay is supposed to meet personally with the "Superman" people soon -- but she might be a little busy with that felony grand theft charge thing. 

According to our sources, Lindsay is "dying to show people again how talented she is" and is worried this latest run-in with the law (for which she maintains she's innocent) could ruin her shot at the movie. 

Apparently that necklace she's accused of stealing is made out of kryptonite.

Reps for Warner Bros had no comment.

I wonder when the casting decisions for this Superman movie are finalized?

If Lindsay is not charged for this jewelry incident and she can (somehow) manage to stay out of trouble with criminal justice system for 6 months or a year, then I think she ought to get a chance at this Superman role. Then, we'll see if she still has the talent to be a star in Hollywood like she used to be.

Just being considered for a role in this movie should be a HUGE motivator for Lindsay to "BE COOL" and be a productive "model citizen" of the state of California.

It's all up to Lindsay now. Lindsay is the producer and director of her life. Can she grow up and make good decisions? Inquiring minds want to know. Hopefully, she'll be a big turnaround story like Robert Downey. Who knows?

I heard that Jennifer Aniston is thinking about putting Lindsay into a movie she might be producing. I think it would be wise for Lindsay to finally "get it together".

You had better copyright that idea! Dina has her own production company you know (spin, spin, bend, bend). Sounds like a hit with a bullet if you ask me.

I get it now... she was doing research for an upcoming roll! Since she already knows what jail is like, she had to experience committing a "real" crime to understand the character better. It all makes sense now. She's up to play a criminal and she was doing research. Why didn't the family just tell us all this in the first place? Clearly the legal system is just getting in the way of her ability to land choice rolls!

Lindsay will not be having any role in the new superman reboot.

There was a discussion on the subject as who'd make a crazy Louis Lane,and that's as far as it went.

She is NOT being considered for any role in that remake.

This is Dina creating false rumors,and nothing more.

No parents want to see Lindsay in something a lot of kids enjoy.I assure you of that,and those producing this remake know better than to allow a recovering drug addicted thief into the studio.

It'll never happen.

Good try Dina.

LOL I should have more important things to think about than LL. Now, I don't care if she gets convicted of her latest crime -- it's going to be a matter of record. This is going to be her last chance and I truly believe she's on the same road as Robert Downey, Jr. and will end up in jail eventually. Some people just go kicking and screaming b/4 they get it.

Anyway for those of you who would like to make a comment one way or the other:

#48 Grandma,
Hi, Grandma! As you probably know, ANYONE can have a production company. The trick is trying to find investors. Who the hell would want to invest in a Lohan production? Daddy thief, mommy liar, daughter liar daughter thief? Maybe if they did another remake of the Addams Family, only calling it the Lohan family. Look at the Oscars it would be eligible for:
Best Comedy (the mother frantically "spins" PR about the daughter
Best Drama (Oh, the constant courtroom scene)
Wouldn't cost much to make. Lindsay could steal all the required costumes. Daddy could cheat people out of their money and put it towards "production costs" Mommy's and Lindsays hair extensions could be used to cover "cousin IT". No makeup would be needed for Ali to play Grandmama and Dina (without her hair extensions, of course) could play Uncle Fester. :0

another recked movie not even out of the shoot. What are the producers thinking. They're not thinking. Poor Superman!!! She would do better as a character in a comic book.

You know, Catwoman is an international jewel thief, and has been shown in the past to have been a former prostitute, as well as having a very loose moral code. I'm thinking LiLo got the Superman and Batman movies mixed up!

I think most people will avoid movies Lindsay would ever be in again.
She'd ruin the movie,because the audience would get distracted seeing a real life trouble maker.It would be like having a former president in a remake of the X-Files...Or having one of the Jersey Shore actors going to star in some CSI Miami.

If you're going to have Lindsay in a remake of a Superman,you might as well get Kim Kardashian to be in it as well,and the Jersey Shore crew.

Hard to believe any reputable director would choose an actress who has a well deserved reputation for being an alcoholic druggie. If she winds up in jail for the necklace, it would mean the end of her career. However, her attorney will probably get her off with just a warning.

The legal system coddles these spoiled rich people and it's an insult to poor people who get railroaded into jail with incompetent public defenders who don't even take the time to try to help the accused.
