Lindsay Lohan

Criminal Record

Creates 'Issues' For New Movie

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

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.

I am Spartacus    

Please let her go to Canada and KEEP HER THERE!!!

Her face looks like a smashed bag of apples. Nobody is going to go see your little Liz Taylor movie. It'll end up going straight to DVD or end up on Lifetime because Lohan can't act anymore and people don't want to support this drugged up b***h.

Second thoughts what a surprise. Wonder why. Just look at how stupid, recklass Lohan still is at 26. To put herself in a situation a week shy (true or not) that could possibly jeopardized her probation? Why even risk that? Oh, that's right this is still a game to her. Look what I can still get away with. Responsibile, matured, changed. Not even close. Lohan still prooving why she's not worth it.

Let's just say this should all this work out...Toronto is not LA. Yes Lindsay, Canada is a different country. She messes up and breaks any law in Canada make no mistake they will make room for her.

Forget that she cant go to Canada what an insult to Elizabeth Taylor to have this nasty skank play her what the hell was they thinking? Elizabeth is probably turning in her grave right now. She is terrible actress cant, even act in SNL and she looks nothing like Elizabeth. Out of all the actresses they could only find this loser? If this story is true and that's a BIG IF because this woman lies about everything I will not be watching its disgusting to have someone like her playing a icon and a great actress.

This isn't news, TMZ told us weeks ago that Lindsays lawyer was working on the paperwork. Its a non story.

This is what will happen
Lindsay will be granted informal probation.
There will be no charges for the alleged hit and run because its a scam. The police and DA know that.
Lindsay will get the work permit for Canada.

Sorry haters, tomorrow your gonna be in mourning and it will be the same over the next few weeks.

Hey Canada... The US hasn't forgotten the extradition of serial-murderer Charles Ng. We still love you for that. Please don't tarnish years of goodwill.... put the cones out.

Her next statement will be, move the movie to the US, cuz I'm Lindsay Lohan. Don't let her in Canada, make her think about her life and all the crap she has done. Loser Lohan

I would think that they would like to keep sticky fingers out of Canada before anything else. I mean once Lindsay gets back across the border with the stolen goods, they may never get their stuff back again. Lindsay, as predicted will say that the border guards are out to frame her and just wanted to check out her fire crotch. Lying to everyone by saying something about me hiding the jewels of Liz Taylor up there. Can you believe it?
YES! Lindsay we can!

I thought this Taylor movie was shooting in Vancouver, now Toronto? No funding for this bomb with Blohan at the helm Lifetime? What, no announcement on who is you're leading lady Lifetime? Yea, didn't think so . . . .
