She tried to get out, but they just keep pulling her back in. Lindsay Lohan is making her return to the movie business, as the star recently announced at her first-ever appearance at the annual Sundance Film Festival.
Dubbed Inconceivable, Lohan will produce and star in the upcoming film, which is set to start shooting in March. Described as a “psychological thriller about a woman trying to reclaim something she lost,” Lohan said that she “related to the character in a lot of ways.” No co-stars have yet been announced, but Lohan said that she’d be going after Juliette Lewis, Jessica Lange and others.
Financier and co-producer Randall Emmett joined Lohan for the announcement, calling her “one of the greatest young actresses of her generation.” Lohan, for her part, downplayed that particular angle, saying that she’s greatful to be back in the film game.
“I never had the honor of coming here before … to bring something to the table, which is starting fresh for me,” Lohan said, adding that she was filming an Oprah docu-series at the time of the announcement.
Inconceivable will serve as Lohan’s first appearance since 2013’s The Canyons, which more or less was panned by everyone except writer Brett Easton Ellis. Lohan served as executive producer on that film, so her expanded role for Inconceivable may not bode well.
But, then, when Lindsay Lohan’s in a headline, what does?
