It looks like the Bret Easton Ellis penned contemporary “L.A. noir” film is moving forward.
Actress Lindsay Lohan has recently been cast in the film alongside male porn star James Dean. Paul Schrader (American Gigolo, Affliction) is still set to direct the movie.
The film is The Canyons, a contemporary thriller that documents “five twentysomethings’ quest for power, love, sex and success in 2012 Hollywood” and is written by American Psycho‘s Bret Easton Ellis.
It was Ellis himself who first broke news of Lindsay’s casting on Twitter.
“James Deen and Lindsay Lohan have been cast in The Canyons,” he wrote in the first of a series of tweets retweeted by Lindsay. “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.”
Shooting of the film will take place in LA between July 9 and 31.
