Lindsay Lohan’s “Canyons” Picked Up by IFC
Despite getting plenty of publicity, Lindsay Lohan's project “The Canyons” couldn’t seem to find a home, but now IFC Films has acquired the erotic thriller.
According to a report, the “Mean Girls” babe and her porn star costar James Deen will see plenty of action as there’s both a VOD and theatrical release in the works.
“The Canyons” is a “postmodern story about power and the dark side of Hollywood, centering around a scheming and very wealthy movie producer, Christian, who makes movies to satisfy his father's demands that he maintain a viable career.”
New York Film Festival honcho Kent Jones told press, "On one level, The Canyons is a visually and tonally precise, acid-etched horror story of souls wandering through a hyper-materialistic hell, with a fearless and, I think, stunning performance by Lindsay Lohan at its center.”
"On another level, it’s an inspiration and an example to us all: It’s difficult for me to imagine another filmmaker of Paul Schrader’s stature diving into the world of crowd-sourced moviemaking, let alone with such fervor, dedication and rigor."
