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.

Radar says Lindsay's Insurance Company paid 1/2 million bucks to the people she chased down Pacific CoaST HWY, so good luck getting insurance.

Ok. Per Lohans classic BS she can never proove or back up. Per Lindsay, got the Liz part signed and sealed months ago. Per Lohan, the movie is 'waiting' on her to complete her probation so she will be allowed to leave the states and start shooting in Toronto. Again this is all per Lohan, all she had to do is complete her probation. That probally will be tomorrow.

Ok. If true? Why the 'jumping through hoops' for a Canadian work permit? You would think that all the paperwork and whatever necessary would have already been drawn up and filed just waiting for signatures (pending of course) on her completion of her probation in the states. Again, why the jumping through hoops?

Still going with her stupid, reckless, dumbass BS she pulled a week ago. Hey Lohan want's the attention. She's getting it and never in a good way. Pulls in an alley at 1 am to wish her mystery friend a happy birthday, Lohan claims, her words, couldn't do that because she was surrounded by the paps flash bulbs, there was never any paps no flash bulbs. Lohan tripping over her own lies as usual and getting caught. I ask, so what's changed? Nothing.

Many countries in Asia also prohibit Americans convicted of DUI from even entering their country as tourists. Hope Lindsay doesn't have any plans to visit the 'Great Wall of China' in the near future.

MADISYN, LIAISON TO THE H8TURDS!!    

There is NO Taylor role for Blohan. People are putting the proverbial cart before the horse here. Lifetime has no Taylor biopic going at this time. Look at their website, Blohans IMDb. For a movie starting in a month, I think it would be up there by now!

Honestly can't see why she would be cast to play any role depicting Ms. Taylor. There are so many other classier, prettier and more deserving actresses available. Only thing I can figure is that they hope to benefit from her notoriety.

Obtaining a Visa Waiver should not be a huge problem. They are regularly granted. It is not however needed cuz Lohan is not filming any movies

I find it amazing that a Canadian with any kind of record, no matter how old or if they have received a pardon will be not only denied entry into the USA but will also be detained by armed guards for hours. But our country is willing to let your trash blow across the border any time it likes. It sickens me.
