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!!!!!"

That's so stupid and fcuked up and a spit in the face to someone's art and hard work. They've turned SUNDANCE into a popularity contest now? Now it's not about how hard you work but how the media perceives you? I thought that's what the Oscars were for. Because Lindsay has a bad girl image, just trash her whole film. People just want to be on the bandwagon. It's "cool" to hate Lindsay now. Lame as fcuk.

Since when did Sundance show soft core porn??? And isn't Sundance just a place for celebs to be seen and get some "swag". ??
Even Redford himself said that it has turned into something that he didn't want to happen.
