Lindsay Lohan's maligned new film The Canyons finally has a distributor.

The self-proclaimed "neo-noir thriller" starring LiLo and porn star James Deen has been acquired by IFC Films, which is planning a "multi-platform."

It will soon be available via theatrical, digital and on demand options.

IFC releases indie films in theaters and on demand simultaneously, so it's a logical fit for the controversial project written by Bret Easton Ellis.

The low budget film has received major publicity ... not all of it good.

Lindsay Lohan can't catch a break these days.

Last week, her new movie The Canyons was rejected by the Sundance Film Festival, and now South By Southwest (SXSW) has reportedly followed suit.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, "quality issues" was the hilarious reason cited, with one source labeling the Bret Easton Ellis film "a monstrosity."

Hottest Mess

Good or bad, the recent New York Times feature entitled "Here Is What Happens When You Cast Lindsay Lohan in Your Movie" did little to help the film.

The paper describes the "chaos" surrounding the often-drunk Lindsay Lohan, from $46,000 hotel bills to erratic behavior and days-long disappearances.

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.

Lindsay Lohan was absolutely destroyed in the original screenplay for Scary Movie 5, although it's anyone's guess what material makes the final cut.

The working script was obtained by TMZ and boy, are there a lot of jokes at Lindsay's expense ... even her buddy Charlie Sheen gets in on the act.

We start it off with them in bed making a sex tape, until she says, "Okay let's do this quick, I got a court hearing in the morning ... It's a driving mishap thing."

"Promise me you won't drive," he urges. "That's very sweet, worrying about me behind the wheel," she replies. "I'm worried about me. I'm a pedestrian," Sheen counters.

BAM! Oh, and it continues ...

Lindsay Lohan will star in Scary Movie 5, sources confirmed over the weekend.

The comeback kid continues her recent winning streak - Lifetime's Liz & Dick stars Lohan as Elizabeth Taylor and The Canyons features Lindsay and porn star James Deen - as E! News reports shes "definitely" doing the film.

What's more, Charlie Sheen may appear along side her. Seriously.

Despite him being uncomfortably killed off in Scary Movie 4, Sheen is said to be in talks to return for the franchise's fifth installment, due out in 2013.

It's being touted as a complete reboot of the franchise, so it's easy to invent ways to bring Charlie back ... hopefully in scenes with Lindsay.

It would be a watershed moment for celebrity gossip if these two train wrecks / tabloid staples had some sort of fight scene to the death.

Anna Faris, meanwhile, will not appear in Scary Movie 5.

Lindsay Lohan's sex scene in The Canyons, which co-stars porn actor James Deen, came with an interesting caveat that viewers of the film will never see.

The actress was hesitant, according to TMZ, to shoot the steamy scene, but agreed after the crew filming the romp fulfilled an very unusual request.

What was it? That everybody take part! Sort of.

The scene showing Lindsay Lohan nude (or at least topless) made her so unsettled that she made every one of the 10-man crew strip down to boxers.

The crew was hesitant at first, but eventually obliged, stripping down and preparing for the scene in their underwear. After that, things went great!

One would think that Lindsay Lohan, whose Playboy photos were among the most-viewed in the magazine's history, would be totally uninhibited.

Then again, one would think a lot of things about Lindsay Lohan that aren't true. Girl has a tendency of defying logic ... as well as many, many laws.

In any case, you can see her boobs, if you're into that sort of thing, in the new movie, due out next year. This concludes today's most pointless movie news!

With all the court dates, 911 calls and car crashes, Lindsay Lohan's whole life is like a scary movie. Why not star in an actual film by that name?

The starlet may soon score a role in Scary Movie 5, according to reports. LiLo recently met with Dimension Films' head honcho Bob Weinstein.

It is NOT a done deal though, despite the conversations.

"They had a great meeting and they are going to continue talking," a movie insider said. "But there's no part being written for her ... yet."

Both sides, multiple sources confirm, are indeed interested in working together in the fifth Scary Movie film, which will also star Ashley Tisdale.

Despite crashing her car and lying to police, Lindsay Lohan's career has yet to crash and burn. The hot mess just landed another movie role!

Currently starring as Elizabeth Taylor in Liz & Dick, Lohan has also been booked for The Canyons, a contemporary thriller, according to E!

The film will document "five twentysomethings' quest for power, love, sex and success in 2012 Hollywood" and is written by Bret Easton Ellis.

Lindsay Lohan Lips

It was Ellis himself who first broke news of Lindsay Lohan's casting on Twitter, along with that of her leading man ... porn star James Deen.

"James Deen and Lindsay Lohan have been cast in The Canyons," he wrote in the first of a series of tweets retweeted by Lindsay herself.

"And I am beyond thrilled that James Deen and Lindsay Lohan will be playing the parts of Christian and Tara in The Canyons by BEE."

"Could not have dreamed of a better cast. Lindsay nailed it."

That's what the guy driving the 18-wheeler said. Too soon?

Lindsay Lohan will reportedly still star as Elizabeth Taylor in the upcoming biopic Liz & Dick despite the assault investigation that's hanging over her head.

Yes, the actress has caught a break. For once.

LiLo’s recent behavior, or alleged recent behavior, is NOT looking like a threat to her future projects ... partly because she's done nothing illegal. Yet.

Even after Lindsay’s whole alleged assault of some chick at a hotel bar and her partying at Coachella, the film's producers are standing by her side.

Steve Honig, Lohan’s rep, says: "Producers have assured us everything is on track and there are absolutely no problems. Lindsay is going to star."

Pretty much what we expected ... but you never know.

Hopefully LiLo stays on track and doesn’t do anything that could possibly throw a wrench into the role of a lifetime ... or at least a role ON Lifetime.

What do you think? Can she stay clean?

Lindsay Lohan is ready to sign on to play Elizabeth Taylor, according to reports.

It looks like she's nearing a deal to make it official, as she's also working to complete her community service faster than required to clear the way for filming.

At Lohan's probation progress hearing, she is expected to receive glowing reports as a model morgue employee. If that goes as planned, she should be good.

The plan is to sign the deal early next week, barring unforeseen setbacks.

The Lifetime film will focus on Taylor's tumultuous relationship with two-time husband Richard Burton, and producers were reportedly keen on Lohan - like Taylor, a star at an extremely young age and often maligned - to star as the icon.

This is just one of many projects LiLo is reportedly considering.

We made fun of the notion that Lindsay Lohan Playboy photos could revive her career, but she made nearly a million bucks, and is actually getting more offers than she's received in years due to her popularity - and growing maturity.

Consider THG humbled.
