SNEAK PEEK: “The CANYONS” starring America’s favorite hot mess – LINDSAY LOHAN.
Take one has been director Paul Schrader, mix well with a burnt out novelist Bret Easton Elllis, add one porn star James Deen (not the dead "Rebel Without a Cause" dude) and top it off with the new Queen of Cheese LiLo – and what do you have?
The trailer for the most “controversial movie of the summer”!
Here’s what the PR says: “IFC's provocative and highly anticipated THE CANYONS, starring Lindsay Lohan and James Deen, is a must see VOD film event! The film is directed by Paul Schrader (writer of Taxi Driver and writer/director of American Gigolo) and written by Bret Easton Ellis (author of American Psycho and Less Than Zero).”
James Deen and Lindsay Lohan and star as Christian and Tara – a young LA trust-fund kid with casual ties to moviemaking and his girlfriend, a once aspiring actress/model-turned-plaything. When Christian learns of a secret affair between Tara and the lead of his film (Nolan Gerard Funk – <no relation to GRAND FUNK>), he spirals out of control and his cruel mind games escalate into an act of bloody violence.”
<INSERT snarky cineaste comment HERE> Just like Curtis Harrington’s classic cult film “Games” which starred James Caan and Katharine Ross?!
An official selection of the Venice Film Festival, THE CANYONS will be available to watch in select theaters, on cable VOD and digital outlets beginning August 2nd.
In the meantime watch the trailer and let’s see if Lilo out does her “Liz and Dick” perf:
