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.

I this it Ladies and gentleman? Is this her exit strategy from the Liz and **** film? She would have gotten the part but she has immigration troubles?

Getting a work permit in Canada with a couple of DUI's is problematic. On the other hand, she's a pretty low level criminal and the Government here does support the film industry. 50/50, I'd say.

Not a peep from Black Cloud, he must be so scared. Hide all you want Black Cloud, be silent all you want. It wont change the fact that YOU set a Black Jinx upon Lindsay Lohan and her career.

MAXIMUM LOL!!!! Ok, this is it. Poor Nikki will have put another jinx on non-fans and haters by tomorrow after Lindsay is free as a bird. You people can't possibly, possibly be serious thinking Lindsay will be cuffed and thrown in the jug. You can't be serious.
