Lindsay Lohan

Assault Accusation Will NOT

Affect Liz Taylor Role

EXCLUSIVE

Lindsay Lohan's alleged nightclub assault -- and her weekend-long partying -- will not scare off the producers who hired her to play Elizabeth Taylor.

Lindsay's rep Steve Honig tells TMZ he spoke to the filmmakers this morning -- after the photos of LiLo at the Coachella Music Festival came out -- and says, "Producers have assured us everything is on track and there are absolutely no problems."

Sources close to the production tell us producers also aren't overly concerned about the ongoing police investigation into whether Lindsay assaulted a woman at a Hollywood nightclub. We're told they're sticking with her ... for now.

Honig says, "Lindsay is going to star in Liz and Dick."

Lindsay Lohan: She's free, she's single, she's white, she's rich, she has a job, she has a good time. She's the female Charlie Sheen. What's not to like...

Don't forget her career is so far down the toilet they got Lohan very very cheap. She can't demand or expect what she once could very long ago. She's lucky as hell she got this low budged tv movie.


No offence to Lifetime but they use d-z listers and movies are pretty cheezy. I have no intention of seeing it.

This girl gets so many chances it's ridiculous. What a shame Hollywood turned their backs on Dana Plato when she needed it. LiLo is just like Dana, but has all the luck thanks to Hollywood. Not fair! RIP Dana!

What an affront to Liz's memory to have LieHo play her. Courtney Love, maybe, but not Liz Taylor.

That is not what ROL says. Funny how Honig never gets it right. "Lindsay Lohan's inability to tell the truth and and stay out of trouble could derail her comeback, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.

As previously reported, Lindsay is being investigated for allegedly assaulting Marisa Dugas at The Standard Hotel in West Hollywood almost two weeks ago. The actress claims she was at home watching television when the incident allegedly occurred, even though three people – including the accuser — have now filed police reports.

The producers of Lindsay's first acting role in years in the Liz Taylor biopic television movie for Lifetime, "are extremely concerned about Lindsay's hard partying ways. Here are the facts, since she was formally taken off formal probation, she has been at the Chateau Marmont several times. She was definitely at the nightclub when the assault (allegedly) took place," a source close to the situation tells us.

"However, Lindsay told the producers that she wasn't there, so even if she isn't charged with a crime, her inability to tell the truth is hurting her, period. The producers had to jump through hoops to get Lindsay insured for the project, so it's very concerning that she is putting herself in situations that just aren't good for her. You compound that with the lies, and Lindsay is truly her own worst enemy."

Meanwhile, Marisa is hopeful that Lindsay will be held accountable for her actions.

"My client Marisa Dugas, has given the West Hollywood Sheriff's Department pictures of injuries that were inflicted by Lindsay Lohan. We are anxious to see the surveillance video which we feel will prove that Lindsay Lohan was at the nightclub and the evidence will speak for itself," her legal ace attorney, Mark Haushalter, said.

Lindsay has vehemently denied that she was at the hotel and said she was at home watching television. Lohan's rep told RadarOnline.com last week, "Whomever is responsible for this lie will be held accountable for their misguided actions."

However, Lohan's rep is now saying, "We're going to wait for the Sheriff's Department to release their findings before we comment any further."

Lohan is scheduled to begin filming for the Liz Taylor biopic in Canada at the beginning of May."

More concrete evidence, according to the sage DarkMange:

"Well you won't to worry about that, because we're not going to see any videos from the Standard since their CCTV system is digital, security footage is erased on a regular schedule, so any footage from that night Lindsay was allgedly at the hotel is long gone by now, so whether a subpoena is issued(highly unlikely due to privacy issues)or not is irrelevant. Idiots like Magmax can swear all they want, but Lindsay was NOT at the Standard".

I don't know why we bother with the Judicial system.... DarkMange just pulls the indisputable facts straight out of her ass.... case closed. How very efficient.

It's obvious why Hohan is going to play Elizabeth Taylor. Is there another woman who is more comfortable around dik? I think not. In fact, she luxuriates in dik. She was born for dik. She needs dik. Her and dik were made for each other. Well, that and dirty butt.

Regardless of who plays the role, IT'S ELIZABETH TAYLOR, OR DAME ELIZABETH. NEVER, NEVER LIZ. She hated that.
