Lindsay Lohan's The Canyons Director Too Scared To Release Film??

| Filed under: Lindsay LohanFilm Flickers

Lindsay Lohan Canyons Director Movie Release Delayed

In old westerns, outlaws always seem to hide out in the canyons. Well, this time it's The Canyons that are hiding!

After the Lindsay Lohan indie film didn't get accepted into the Sundance Film Festival, director Paul Schrader is rethinking the film's release.

And it's looking like we may not get to see Lindsay's canyons for quite some time. Paul says:

"It's going to be a few months. The intense reactions to Liz and Dick and the Times Mag article have made us realize that there will be an immediate blowback once The Canyons is publically screened–for good and ill. That's the nature of anything involving Lindsay."

It sounds to us like Paul is afraid of what the press will say!

He plans to stem the power of negative reviews by releasing the film VOD simultaneous with its limited theatrical run and says the whole process could take up to four months!


Isn't he afraid the heat will die down by then? Nope. Then again, he's not taking off his rose-colored glasses any time soon. He says:

"In a way it's good we're not at Sundance. We weren't prepared, we weren't organized…

The film is very good. I have no qualms about that."

Well, it's just too bad he's expecting his very good film to get such a bad rap in the media!

They're probably just jealous!

    Oh Lord lol She needs to just go away.

    Can't blame him. It was turned down by sundance. Plus, anything labeled with Lindsay is bound to be a disaster. Not to be mean, but until she turns her life around there will be more of the same.

    I hope she turns her life around.

    This has got DVD cult classic all over it. It might take a couple of years but it will pay off on home video.

    As I said when you first started earning the money they paid you to publicize this travesty,,,,straight to DVD, like all of the test of the C movies. Even B movies get screen time.

    "Isn't he afraid the heat will die down by then? Nope." No, he's hoping she'll be dead bu then, this will be her last job(other than her whoring "pay dates") so he'll get a splash from that. Write this down, you'll see I'm right.

    Well, what did he expect? This is Lindsay Lohan he put in his film after all.

    He's expecting that she'll die within the next 3-4 months, and by then he might get more sympathetic reviews… Easy call on that one.

    This production was weird from the get-go. Schrader hiring Lohan (I am sure solely for publicity) to help his dead career. Even his wife, the great Mary Beth Hurt, dismissed the film as rubbish porn. The way they went about funding, the script, the weird obsession with Deen by the screenwriter, the lack of commitment by the stars, the choice to have a NY Times reporter embedded during production…etc. etc. To be honest, I feel sorry for the crew. They worked hard and their names are attached and it looks to be a non-starter for any festival or distributer. Lohan's name attached to it - utterly doomed it. Let that be a lesson to all future filmmakers who are considering her for a future project. Lohan is not only a terror and liability on set, she's box office poison.

    So…he's placing the blame on Lindsay?

    Ya cuz she sucks ass in it. Liz & Dick was terrible. She is no longer a cute Disney kid anymore & can't act as an adult. She stinks. Lindsay GO AWAY!

    i'm lindsay fan.. and i saw the preview scene where he pushes lindsay into wall and drags her and screams at her. she sounded like she lost her voice when she said "oh shit". i think it will be good movie to watch… deen was just hired like lindz. their using her name to get publicity.
