You don't mess with Lindsay's likeness!
As we mentioned yesterday,
Lindsay Lohan Lydia Hearst is set to star in an upcoming movie Dogs in Pocketbooks, which is quite obviously based on LiLo's life.
Hearst is set to play "a bratty movie goddess in and out of rehab, in trouble with the law, and hounded by greedy agents, predatory paparazzi, off-the-wall stalkers and crazed media."
As a result, Team LiLo is considering pursuing legal action against the film's producers.
Here's what Dina Lohan had to say about the potential lawsuit:
"[The new movie] is definitely based on Lindsay's likeness. We have a very strong case. It's shadowing E*TRADE" — referring to Lohan's suit against the online brokerage firm which produced a commercial featuring a baby Lindsay."
Lohan family lawyer, Stephanie Ovadia, continued:
"They are again using her likeness without her being compensated. Not only that but they are advertising the fact that they are using her likeness."
Looks like they've got a case here. Guess we'll see if the producers' pocketbooks are big enough to keep Dogs in Pocketbooks moving forward.
