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.

This is such a dumb article. Seriously get some new material already, and please do NOT make it about her loser father Michael or his even bigger loser on again off again gf Kate! And PUH Leaze, NO more lame stories on the Kardashian clan either!

I guess it depends on whether your name is Casey or Lindsay as to what happens to you. Casey serves three years with no conviction in solitary confinement and Lindsay gets off two DUI convictions and a jewelry theft conviction to make a movie in Canada. Why should Lindsay make money with her record? Ah yes public opinion.

So glad Liz isn't alive to see this mess happen. How disgusting. A Hollywood icon being played by a piece of trash junkie, thief.

A Lifetime TV movie, even if it is about Liz Taylor, is not how you jumpstart a career. Lifetime is where actresses whose star is fading go to live out the rest of their careers.

Has Lifetime actually announced that she has A ROLE in that movie? Haven't heard that, just the phantom sources saying it.

I was just wondering about celebs with DUIs being allowed into Canada - being as no common folk can. Is there a double standard here? Funny thing is, folks from Canada with DUIs are allowed in the States... I smell a double standard - times two!!

You will see the Judge, The DA, Lindsay's lawyer, the baliff, the stenogragher, and everyone that was involved in the many court room drama's that Lindsay put them through, doing a happy dance out of the court house and down the street. The last thing you hear them say in unison to Lindsay as they fade off is don't call us, we won't call you.
Passing Lindsay as they are walking in are the New Judge, new DA, etc. Each give Lindsay the evil eye, and mouth the words, Game ON!
