Lindsay Lohan

Assault Accusation Will NOT

Affect Liz Taylor Role

EXCLUSIVE

0416_lindsay_lohan_tmz
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 playing the part of Elizabeth Taylor is an insult to the actress. She does not resemble her and there are so many other beautiful women who could play the part and who do not have a criminal record.

And don't forget folks. While in Coachella LL's last 10K, passport, AND the "untitled" script were all stolen. You know, for the movie that isn't fully written yet? The one that HAS NOT been cast? The one that has NOT been announced by LIFETIME? I call S-H-E-N-I-G-A-N-S. No I don't, I call the LL camp LIARS......BTW, found this LOVELY pic of LL with black hair, falling down drunk!

I hope they get the comedian, Emmo Phillips, to play the part of Richard Burton.

It's a battle for the truth between ROL and TMZ. Although no one has ever said Lindsay actually signed for the role, and it's not listed on IMDb, so I'm going with ROL on this one.

Lindsay's rep Steve Honig tells TMZ he spoke to the filmmakers this morning -- after the photos of LiLo stoned out of her gourd with Snoop and also exiting the men's bathroom with a "mystery man" at the Coachella Music Festival came out -- and says, "Producers have assured us everything is on track and there are absolutely no problems."

Why is this such a big deal if Lohan is telling the truth? If Lohan is milking this for attention bad move. Show the tape already.


God help Lohan if it turns out she is lying and trying to cover it up and get's caught. Her career is so far down the toilet now she can considered it flushed if she is lying.

How smart is it of Lifetime to drag this on as long as possible, and then possibly sign someone else? They've gotten all this free publicity!

Not only does ir not exist anywhere including imdb - but this Konig guy has the shadiest website and you can't find one photo or story on him unrelated to Lohan or Mueller his other supposed drug addict client. No one in my working environment has ever seen him, heard of him or worked with him and they know all agents, PR peeps and managers. One attorney said "he's trying to scare up business by giving free so-called "services" to Lohan because of her infamous notetiety" "He's no one" All people have assured me he has nothing to do with the industry and is not involved in any deals. He is not in the Bluebook

There's now proof that Lindsay Lohan hasn't gone a day in 8 years without doing at least $1,000.00 worth of cocaine. Every day. At least. Even in jail. I cite the same sources that "HELL(p)" did when she just claimed that Linds movies made a billion dollars.

Why haven't they announced who's playing Richard Burton? It's only two weeks out allegedly.
