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."

Like shes playing Elizabeth Taylor anyway noticed how nobody has confirmed it only Lindsay herself and her rep. It is an absolute insult to even consider having this nasty skank play her she is a disgrace and cannot act. Go away Lindsay your a has been and nobodies interested in you anymore.

Yeah, she will star in Liz and ****, not sure if it will be a Lifetime movie though, I'm thinking with her skill-set it will be porn. She loves any ****, or anything else, that is remotely, at least, close to human. She is a terrible actress and this "breakthrough" role will be shun upon by all of the critics and will get very low ratings, after the initial shock value (10 mins). She was a child actress, because she was a child, playing herself. As she has grown older it is painfully obvious that she couldn't make the transition because she has no talent and no desire to learn the craft of real acting, plus she is a self entitled drug and alcohol addicted ho.

TMZ can you please stop being Lindsay Lohan's mouthpiece?

She doesn't have this film until at least she's onset playing Liz Taylor (I'm so sorry Liz), until then it's just like that Gotti thing. No effect yet, but she's been off of formal probation for less than a month, and she's already had issues with a work visa, been accused of assault and hanging around Coachella. There's also that little issue of the hit and run, and her constant lying about everything. So, it's not looking very good, now is it?

If it's on the video, Lindsay will say she's sorry, and that will be the end of it. Why make a big deal out of a simple barfight? Time to look at the bright side. Lindsay's finally free - be happy for her.
