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."

Lohan has done so much damage to herself and professional reputation and has way too much ongoing baggage.

I always said her just fading away and no longer worth the paps would be a fate worse than jail. Isn't it just amazing how the paps always knows where she is and she always makes sure that they do.

Of course she'd jump at that chance. Her career is so deep in the toilet that I wouldn't be surprised to see her doing ads for the local furniture store.

Just read the article that dreamon posted. Gross as it was regarding the Lohans and their involvement in "the business" of gossip, I found it even worse to think of people selling and buying confidential medical info, like about Farrah's recurrence of cancer, or death photos (paps wanted photos of Michael Jackson right after he died,) or worse, still, people like Casey Anthony, the woman who murdered her own daughter, whose family received $200,000 for home videos and photos. They're using the money for her defense fund. Nice. Very nice. Great to profiteer off of a heinous criminal act.

Oh, and kudos to those who called BS on Kate Major's story of Michael Lohan abuse recently. They were concurrently and not uncoincidentally, filming a new reality show. Thus her claims were all fabricated BS.

Well, we already know that the name Lohan = fabricated BS. Nothing new there. Just amazing how much opportunity they have to sell their steaming piles of BS.

She would be awesome in Carrie. I would love to see a remake of that movie either way though.

You could say, FUTMZ, that that potential opportunity had been "handed" to her, eh?

Why does Hollywood have to remake everything? The original was just fine thanks, there doesnt need to be another hacky butchered version!

Lindsay Lohan is just not relevant as an actor any longer. Disney profited off her because they thought she was going to be a singer and actor. Her singing career amounted to absolutely zero, and then she got too big for her britches as well as old. Disney actors aren't not for acting chops, but rather their fan base. Her original fans grew up. Kind of like when girls used to like Kirk Cameron, Urkel was famous, etc. etc. Now she is a laughing stock in Hollywood, and only known for being in trouble. If someone who had never seen one of her movies saw her, all they would know is she looks haggard, not attractive, cheap looking, and a joke.

Concerning the "Gossip Machine" article, which I found very informative and interesting: it's known that alot of stories sold to gossip sites and mags about celebrities are actually sold by said celebrity, or with their permission. For money, exposure, fame whoredom, whatever.

There is a difference, imo, of this and of medical professionals selling medical info.

The one thing I will give Milo credit for: at least he's honest about his "gossip income biz." Dina isn't, and neither is Lindsay herself. I think Lindsay's smirky reaction to Judge Schwartz's comments about info being sold to TMZ and ROL was telling. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Dina and Milo are worse, imo, because they are doing this to their DAUGHTER. Lindsay has a right to do it to herself.

Where the heck IS Dina, anyway?

Many child actors make the transition into adult roles. One of them just won the Oscar for Best Actreess this year, and another one won for Best Supporting Actor. Another oen was up for Best Actor.

Many more become attorneys, teachers, ITT folks, writers, directors, SAHM, public employees, etc.

I agree with BRW. I think Lindsay's career may fizzle instead of implode, and I think they will actually effect her worse. She owns her behavior, but her parents should be ashamed of themselves.

The only good thing about LaLoca playing Carrie would be watching her get killed at the end.

No, No, NO! She really isn't that great of an actress. I think it was maybe more of a joke he mention her. As for the Dark Tower, She could play the Ally the whore in Tull no problem
