Lindsay Lohan: Dying for a Chance at "Carrie" Remake

5/23/2011 3:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Stephen King mentioned Lindsay Lohan by name as a possible star in a remake of the classic film "Carrie" -- and sources close to Lindsay tell us ... she'd jump at the chance to play the iconic role.

In an interview with EW, Stephen King was quoted as saying, "I’ve heard rumblings about a Carrie remake ... Lindsay Lohan as Carrie White, hmmm. It would certainly be fun to cast."

Sources close to Lindsay tell TMZ ... she said she was "stoked" when she heard King mention her name and thinks working with King "would be epic."

We're told Lindsay is a big fan of King's work and, if the opportunity presented itself, she'd love to land a role in the upcoming adaption of his famous book, "The Dark Tower."

This role is fantastic for Lindsay , Lots of great stuff for her to show what she can do as an actress
On top of that it would be a lead role ..put a lot of pressure on her to make her mark.. The right director ...either of KIngs pics and this could be a block buster movie.. How about Jamie Lee Curtis for her mother ? now that could be something..

Unfortunately for LiLo, she's no longer relevant in Hollywood anymore. And no one will pay to watch her in a movie.

She is not a hot Hollywood commodity any longer. She's way past it.

Lindsay needs to get a job at the Waffle House. Get in touch with reality. Her acting career is over because she can't act!
