Lindsay Lohan has a new movie that she can’t wait to tell you about.
Following her court-ordered stint in rehab, the troubled actress is looking to get back into the swing of things. To let the world know that she’s once again ready for her close-up, Lohan announced her next project during the 2014 Sundance Film Festival.
Unlike other filmmakers at the annual event, Lindsay Lohan and producer Randall Emmett don’t have a finished product to share with the masses at the moment. Instead, they used the film festival as way to introduce the project to the world. Filming on the production is presently slated to begin this March.
According to Emmett, working with Lindsay Lohan was a dream come true. In his humble opinion, the Mean Girls star is one of the greatest actresses of her generation. The producer said this fact made it incredibly easy to secure financing for the flick.
“The money was very easy because [Lindsay Lohan] is still considered a star among independent financiers,” Emmett recently explained to the Wall Street Journal.
He continued, “I went to the insurance company and they met with [Lindsay Lohan]. They put a policy in place where everybody worked together to make it happen. It was actually easier than you might think.”
Emmett/Furla Films, the production company behind the recent box office hit Lone Survivor, will cough up $5 million to produce Lindsay Lohan’s latest cinematic endeavor. Emmett said a distribution deal is already in place with the folks over at Lionsgate. However, a theatrical release isn’t set in stone just yet.
After the debacle known as director Paul Schrader’s The Canyons, chances are Lionsgate will check out the finished product before deciding how to distribute it. Since Lohan’s power at the box office has wavered in recent years, there’s a strong possibility this effort could head straight to home video and VOD.
The Inquisitr previously reported that Lindsay Lohan is very excited to jump back into the world of motion pictures. Now that her stint in rehab is officially over, she’s hoping to kick-start her career with Inconceivable and the Oprah Winfrey-produced reality series.
“It’s therapeutic for me to throw myself into something that really excites me and something that I love to do so much. There’s nothing better than having seen all of your ideas and thoughts that you’ve been thinking about to come to fruition and to share that with people. I think that’s why I’ve always loved making movies so much. So it’s nice to be able to have another position in the film rather than just showing up and being on the set.”
