The producers of Lindsay Lohan's upcoming indie film The Canyons are flat out stunned that the movie has been rejected by The Sundance Film Festival.
Obviously, they believe the snub is largely Lindsay's fault.
Sundance originally reached out to producers to screen the movie at the annual event, and The Canyons producers were led to believe it was a lock.
Not the case. Sundance passed, reason not given.
Producers believe - and not unreasonably - that the about-face may be due to their troubled star and the negative attention she brings to ... well, anything.
The Canyons producer, Braxton Pope, insists he is having a screening for buyers this month and that a number of major companies are interested.
The movie, starring Lohan and porn star James Deen, is a "contemporary L.A. noir" from director Paul Schrader, writer Bret Easton Ellis, and Pope.
It's about the dangers of sexual obsession and ambition, both personally and professionally, among a group of young people in their 20's ... typecasting lives!
But seriously though, "one chance meeting connected to the past unravels all of their lives, resulting in deceit, paranoia, mind games and violence."
Will The Canyons be a breakout hit? Or will Lindsay Lohan go to jail and ruin everything? Or would that actually increase the audience for the film?
Only time will tell, THGers.
