Lydia Distances Herself From Lohan Film

This movie is beginning to fall apart!

On Monday we mentioned Lydia Hearst would be playing what writer/producer Charles Casillo described as "a role obviously based on Lindsay Lohan" in Dogs In Pocketbooks.

Since then, Dina Lohan has threatened to sue, Casillo recanted his original statement and now Lydia's saying she's not involved.

The red-haired model tweeted:

Just so we are all clear.. My hair is Red because I am the new face of Schwarzkopf color. I am a model. I dyed my hair to front the campaign

As for any theatrical roles I am currently filming Two Jacks directed by Bernard Rose. My next project is Catwalk by Tony Hickox…

Thank you all for your messages of encouragement during my transition into acting. I truly love and appreciate it. At this time I am not officially signed onto any other projects. Thank you

And there you have it.

So why would Casillo tell the Post otherwise? Oh right, for the publicity.

Team LiLo Considering Lawsuit Against E*Trade Lindsay-Inspired Movie

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.

Thoughts???

Lydia To Act Like Lohan

Model Lydia Hearst's landed her first mayjah movie gig!

The 26 year old is set to star in Dogs In Pocketbooks, where she'll 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 — a role obviously based on Lindsay Lohan."

Screenwriter Charles Casillo says of Lydia:

"She's one of the few supermodels who can actually act. She's smart, well-read, charming and very beautiful. We looked at a lot of actresses for this role, and I was really knocked out."

And before you go and pick up the phone to complain ,Dina Lohan, Casillo says the film "is in no way mean-spirited towards Lindsay. It's the kind of thing she has spoofed about herself in the past."

We'd say that's fair.

Shooting for the film, which also stars Joan Collins as Lydia's agent, begins in February.

We're dying to see the trailer!
