Lindsay Lohan Movie Rejected Again: SXSW Nixes The Canyons

by at . Comments

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.

Director Paul Shrader recognized the controversy surrounding Lohan, citing her lead role in the indie project as the reason for the movie's delayed release.

"Intense reactions to Liz & Dick and the Times article have made us realize there will be blowback once The Canyons is publicly screened - for good and ill," he said.

"That's the nature of anything involving Lindsay."

The official plot synopsis for the film, also starring James Deen, is "a contemporary L.A. noir ... about the dangers of sexual obsession and ambition."

Lohan is one of a group of stars in their 20s.

"One chance meeting connected to the past unravels all of their lives, resulting in deceit, paranoia, cruel mind games and ultimately violence."

Its release date is still TBA.
