Lindsay Lohan and porn star James Deen join Bret Easton Ellis movie 'The Canyons'

lindsay-lohan-the-canyons.jpg Lindsay Lohan's next movie comes from the author of "American Psycho" and the director of "American Gigolo" and "Auto Focus." It's partially funded by Kickstarter and co-stars a porn actor.

So, yeah, "Liz & Dick" this is not.

Lohan will star opposite adult-film star James Deen in "The Canyons," a small-budget movie from writer Bret Easton Ellis and director Paul Schrader. Ellis announced her casting in a series of tweets late Tuesday. "Could not have dreamed of a better cast. Lindsay nailed it ...," Ellis writes.

Lohan's rep, Steve Honig, tells Zap2it he can't officially confirm anything at the moment.

Filming on "The Canyons" is scheduled for July 9-31, which means Lohan won't get much downtime after filming "Liz & Dick," about the romance between Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, for Lifetime. She's slated to wrap on that project at the end of June. (And, of course, she's also dealing with the aftermath of her June 8 car wreck.)

The movie's Kickstarter page describes "The Canyons" as a thriller about "five twenty-somethings' quest for power, love, sex and success in 2012 Hollywood." Ellis, Schrader and producer Braxton Pope are financing much of the movie themselves, but they say the Kickstarter money will help them get more time and equipment, and "maybe two makeup people instead of one or zero," as Schrader puts it. As of this post, they've raised just over $159,000 through the site.
