Despite being blown off at a number of high profile film festivals, Lindsay Lohan and adult film star James Deen have gotten a reprieve and will hit the big screen this summer in 'The Canyons.'

The Paul Schrader-directed indie film project was acquired by IFC Films, who will released it in theaters, digitally and on-demand format.

Schrader released a statement: "I am delighted our film has found an enthusiastic home at IFC.  We envisioned 'The Canyons' as a multi-platform release from the beginning and no company knows that world better than IFC."

Despite rumors that Lohan was difficult to work with during the project, her porn actor co-star had nothing but praise for his leading lady.  He told a reporter last summer, "Working with her was awesome.  She's super professional.  Super great.  She's a fantastic actress ... I feel like I learned a lot from her.  She brought out the best in my acting abilities."

The 'Liz & Dick' actress, who appeared opposite Grant Bowler on Lifetime, was panned by critics who used phrases like "spectacularly bad", "pathetically miscast", and 'laughably inept" to describe the train-wreck performance.
