The Canyons

SNUBBED

The producers of Lindsay Lohan's film, "The Canyons," are stunned that their flick has been rejected by The Sundance Film Festival and they think it's largely Lindsay's fault.

We're told the Sundance people reached out to producers to screen the movie, and we're told producers were led to believe it was a shoo-in.

But we found out Sundance passed on the film recently, and the film's producers believe it might be due in part to the hijinks of its troubled star.  They think Lindsay was a "turn off" to the highfalutin Sundance folks.

"The Canyons" producer, Braxton Pope, tells us his agents William Morris/Endeavor are having a screening for buyers at the end of the month and a number of big companies are interested.

We also spoke with Lindsay's co-star -- porn star James Deen -- who tells us he's not bothered about the Sundance diss ... saying, "It coincides with AVN (the porn awards). Priorities man!!!!!"

Well, it probably does have to do with Lindsay, but more to do with her acting, than her antics....

Of course nobody wants a real life grifter slut coming to town even on the movie screen. She is not just playing one for the cameras but is one & decent people the world over want no part of her antics.

I think I saw her yesterday afternoon standing on a street corner shaking her fist and yelling at the clouds.

Nothing about this film that justifies it being made. Throw it into the Grand Canyon, with the porn lovers involved with it.

There was a preview scene going around youtube. It was 5 minutes of Lilo's character looking for her phone, that was IT! If that is what you choose to show the public as a preview than you clearly made a very boring movie.

In the article written about the Canyons where all Lindsay's antics were recorded, the author reported that Sundance had passed on the movie. This is not news.

Lindsay will have the last laugh. When she OD's sitting on the toilet that she just backed up ala Lenny Bruce, she will become a legend in her families mind. They will sell the pictures of her on the crapper and boy will those short sighted people at Sundance look foolish.Who the hell does Robert Redford think he is-some kind of successful writer,producer, director and actor -the nerve!! This is Lindsay (****ing do you job) Lohan aka BItcho.

This movie has a problem that actually has nothing to do with Lindsay...it doesn't sound remotely interesting. Lindsay doesn't help, she just ups the skeevy factor.

That dude James Deen looks an awful lot like Kirk Cameron. Is JD Kirk's stage name?
