Lindsay Lohan

Criminal Record

Creates 'Issues' For New Movie

3/28/2012 1:48 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0110-lindsay-lohan-getty-ex-1
Lindsay Lohan has just learned another lesson as to why crime doesn't pay ... because she's having to jump through hoops to get a Canadian work permit to shoot a movie that could jump start her career.

Lindsay has been cast as Liz Taylor in the Lifetime movie, "Liz and Dick," which will be shot in Toronto.   Problem is -- Lindsay has 2 DUIs and a theft conviction on her record, and Canada doesn't much like convicted criminals earning cash in Canuck country -- then again, they like money.

So, there is a very complicated process that Lindsay must follow to get a work permit.

Lindsay is in court tomorrow, where Judge Stephanie Sautner is expected to take Lindsay off probation for her Beverly Hills DUI case.  The judge is also expected to change Lindsay's status in the jewelry heist case, from formal probation to informal -- meaning she won't have to report to her probation officer or appear in court, as long as she doesn't break the law.

We're told Lindsay's lawyer is filling out the maze of paperwork required to get the work permit, and the results of tomorrow's hearing will make it easier.  It's a pretty sure bet Canada will give Lindsay the right to shoot the movie.

First of all she hasn't been announced as having the part.

And I really hope Canada doesn't let her in. She wouldn't be the first to be turned away.

A tv movie on a basic cable channel isn't exactly gonna jumpstart her career.

She's the white Whitney Houston at this point...just still breathing.

Stay out of Canada Lindsay, we don't want you. Come on government make a good decision.

I do have to laugh at her already having issues with filming and that she might get dropped from another project. It's pretty much what everyone predicted would happen, easy money if you want to bet.

Just like the US not allowing anyone with a record to come into their country without paying $'s and filling out paperwork, only to wait for 6 months to get an answer! Perhaps she should have to wait just like the rest of us!

first of all can we please stop hearing new stories about this retarded skank who cant follow the law,

and second of all, she is a retarded skank who can't follow the law so we know that whether it is formal or informal probation, does not matter, she WILL screw up again, because that is just what she does
