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."

JANUARY 18, 2012:

Lohan, already has the script for the Lifetime Elizabeth Taylor TV movie, and has been working on memorizing her lines, even though she hasn't officially signed the contract. Lilo's powerhouse attorney, Shawn Holley, is already gathering all the paperwork necessary to give to Canadian officials to show that the actress is in good standing.

Team Lohan will make sure all the 'I's' are dotted and 'T's' are crossed, period," the insider states.

Lohan wants to finish her community service requirements early so she can get started on the Lifetime movie. The 25-year-old starlet has not starred in any films in over 4 years, but she did attend Harvey Weinstein’s Golden Globes after party Sunday night.

This story doesn't smell right. Why would Honig call after Coachella?

He would only call if there was a reason.....

Really this is silly. Any legitimate actor spending their Monday telling the tabloids that they are still employed?

NO. She obviously doesn't care about anyone but herself. If she did she wouldn't put a project under a cloud with her behavior.

In a misguided attempt to attract positive attention, Lohan has changed her astrological sign to "feces".

Lindsay is telling friends, she’s taking her new gig extremely seriously — “obsessing over getting the part right” for the film.

According to sources, Lindsay is doing nothing but watching old Liz Taylor movies to help her recreate the Hollywood icon’s posture, speech, and every other little detail.

We’re told Lindsay has also been watching old Liz interviews online and reading a bunch of Liz biographies.

What the? Now when has Lindsay had time to do all that? Right after she finished CS she went right back to clubbing and staying out late and sleeping in all day then getting up to go club again (repeat all week). When was there time between waking and getting ready to party. This will be another disaster in the making like her SNL performance. She will make it over budget and come in behind schedule. THAT IS IF she gets the part. Two weeks? HaHaHaHaHaHa

MADISYN, LIAISON TO THE H8TURDS!!    

I went to the website. Very impressive list of clients. Lots of very well known companies from Amazon.com, the Coca Cola Company, the Motion Picture and Television Fund, Nintendo, Pedigree Food for Dogs, Revlon, The Salvation Army, Hansen Beverage Company, Hewlett-Packard, Fruit of the Loom, etc. The list goes on and on. I called the number as I'm 818 and lo and behold, what do you think I heard on the other end of the phone? A receptionist answering the phone? Lots of noise in the background of a very busy public relations office? Nope, I got Mr. Honig on a fvckin ANSWERING MACHINE! The message asked if this was 'Deadline' to call his cell and it gave the number, I didn't even bother! LMFAO

delusional much LL?    

jessica simpson's music and acting careers sank and from what i can gather she seems to have accepted it and is back on reality tv.
lowhan needs to accept that she isn't gonna have a career like angelina jolie's and she being this generation's marilyn monroe,well she needs to see a shrink about that.
anytime i've read an article where industry types are talked to about lowhan they make it very clear she isn't even on their radar.
lowhan's career was already starting to tank even before her legal and substance abuse problems.
like countless before and after her,her time at the top has past.
so,i don't know who she's even bothering to put this act on for. you're a party girl,you like to go clubbing, own it.
at least she'll be honest about something.
won't happen of course,white oprah's 'lie and deny' approach is too firmly embedded in lowhan's brain.

While big-lipped Lindsay Lohan managed to show off her skinny figure at the festival in a cream eyelet jumper with matchy-matchy platform heels, the troubled starlet looked a bit ridiculous for a day spent trotting on the dirt of a polo field.
