The Canyons

SNUBBED

By Sundance

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!!!!!"

L-Lofan. Get a clue.


If she doens't take a plea deal based on needing rehab, she's opened herself up to being fully responsible and fully liable and punishable. All her misdeeds with be introduced into court and she'll lose at her trial.


If she's not an addict, then she's a straight out criminal. She's no impaired she's just plain bad.

MADISYN, LIAISON TO THE H8TURDS!!    

Whether there was a rehab deal on the table or not is moot. If so, Blohan rejected it. I've said before, its why I think she fired SCH in the first place.

Okay, I read here a five minute clip was released from the Movie where she's trying to find her cellphone? Okay, so, instead of Smeghan overacting and coming out looking like shyte, she should have just been herself. I wonder if that scene in the movie was where she came up with the excuse for not thanking Charlie Sheen.

delusional much LL?    

look at the fools who jumped on the bandwagon after lowhan's much hyped and promoted 'snl' appearance brought in good ratings.

most could see it was clearly about witnessing a trainwreck in motion.
it didn't even deliver on that account it was just terrible acting.

'snl' being a live show offered a chance to witness a live meltdown. it also was on on a winter's night,at a time of night where there wasn't much competition.

'glee' ,'lifetime' whatever that furniture makeover show was, found out the hard way that lowhan does not equal big ratings.


lowhan is box-office poison.
hiring her doesn't bring about big returns,just headaches.

anyone attaching her name to their project is bascically classifying it as a joke.

How surprising that Delmar would back Nicole.

Hey Delmar, so you're saying that Nicole should "stick to her guns", based entirely on her own conjecture, with no basis in fact? Brilliant. But that's how all you enablers think.

Lindsay Lohan In The Canyons: Your Sneak Peek Here!
Posted on Jan 15, 2013 @ 13:47PM | By Amber Goodhand, News Editor

YouTubeHere it is — the first look at Lindsay Lohan in her latest low-budget flick The Canyons — and it’s everything you could expect for the actress’ paycheck of $100 per day.

In the clip obtained by RadarOnline.com, Lindsay is seen in bed with co-star and porn star James Deen in a tense scene where she’s discovered that he actually hid her cell phone in a drawer and when he catches her snooping around for it, he unleashes a fury of anger and throws her against the wall.

Touted as “youth, glamor, sex and Los Angeles 2012,” The Canyons is a contemporary film noir from writer Bret Easton Ellis and producer Paul Schrader – and it’s supposed to be Lindsay’s comeback.

The contracts for the 3 movies were probably executed during the same time period. Lifetime probably thought that they had enough minders and restrictions to ensure that LL behaved. SM5 probably figured that not too much could go wrong during 2 days of shooting. Now everyone knows--even stunt casting Lindsay is not worth the effort.

I'm out. Catch you all later!

Please allow me to annoy haters for a few minutes with something and then I'm gone. Looks like the Gotti movie is back and it has not been confirmed that Lindsay is not involved. Travolta doesn't know if she's in or not and she is still on the site. They should have removed her clips by now.

it would take a while for chief gall to actually drag that woefully ample lard a.s.s. of his out of here or anywhere else for that matter so he'll just change screen names.

When the IRS seized her accounts was any known arrangement made? I was hoping she'd be arrested by now for tax evasion. Maybe she can write the leggings off as her "work uniforms." Too bad it's probably the same pair she's always in.
