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."

Another possible re-make. The Gotti movie is going to bomb.

It would take Lohan a solid 3 months to complete her CS. If the Gotti movie is being shot in NYC in Oct. how does she do her CS in LA if not completed.

@ Who Farted
Thanks for the link.
She looks horrid; bloated, saggy, freckled, haggard and used up.
No modesty or class whatsoever, just selling what goods she has left.
This is what she has done with all the opportunities she's been given.

Nice how TMZ left out the rest of his qoute. He said that he doesnt think the movie Carrie should even be remade. He is not for a re-make.

Lindsay doesn't have the face of a teenager, even with a lot of makeup. She doesn't even look in her 20's. There's just no way to could get around the fact that she is way too old and hard looking to play such a part. Carrie's crazy mama, maybe. But not Carrie.

Like THAT's going to happen.
LoHo's career now totally consists of inventing rumors about projects she'd like to do.

If it was remaked I think Amanda Seyfried would be the best choice for the roll. I think she could look and play the part well. Why give the part to some junkie on probation who cant even leave the state without getting the court permission?

Who Farted - the last picture especially shows how ravaged she looks these days. It's really shocking to see that face and equate it with the extremely attractive, vivacious (looking) young red-head she once was only a few years ago.

It never ceases to amaze me that Lindsay's family sees her like this and does nothing. How could you let your daughter go to rack and ruin in this manner? And they do, by continuously enabling her. Not a soul in her family ever dares to say that she's ill and her lifestyle is deadly to her. No money in that statement, is there?

King has already said "Carrie" shouldn't be remade, and it is quite clear he was being snarky about Lindsay.

Dina must need tanning money.

the black kid was driving 4 minutes ago

"oscar at 30 what ever . hope she complets the dui terms by 30."


We probably have a better chance of seeing the end of the world come in that time frame than Lindsay win an Oscar OR complete her CS.

Sorry, anony, was trying to quote you and respond and somehow accidentally hit the "send" button before I was ready. Let's try again:

How true is that? I wonder if it ever occurs to her that her "roles" are all in her head? Does it ever make her sad to see that career gone? Does she ever look in the mirror and see "that" face? Does she ever, ever wonder WTF she's done to herself?

Hiya, Seal Team 6!

I too got the snarky angle of the comment. He was saying, "how F'ed up she and her family are - she's as weird as Carrie, hahaha, so could play her based upon that."

I wonder if that means that Lilo will be camping out at all future Steven King press conferences, demanding the role?

According to Lohan she's a 'star.'

Just goes to proove once again, this was just another of her getting away with it. If she was actually serious she would be breaking her butt to complete her CS and get that part out of the way. It would take about 3 months to do that, do her 14 day at home vacation get that overwith and then stay clean for 3 years. Then it's all over and all she will have is her criminal record.

Lohan thinks her 3 yrs. probation was not fair. God forbid she would have to actually complete her CS.
