Lindsay Lohan to join porn star for 'full nudity' film The Canyons

Li-Lo set for role in a 'psychosexual thriller' by Bret Easton Ellis

LINDSAY LOHAN is set to star fully nude in a "psychosexual thriller" alongside the adult actor James Deen, according to Bret Easton Ellis, the author of American Psycho.

Filming for The Canyons, a low-budget film about a group of trust fund kids in their 20s "searching for power, love, sex and success in 2012 Hollywood" is scheduled to begin next month, directed by Paul Schrader, the screenwriter of Taxi Driver and Raging Bull.

Ellis said yesterday that Lohan had "nailed" the audition to play the part of Tara alongside adult actor James Deen, star of Hot for Teacher, Dirty Little Club Sluts and Daddy's Girl is a Bad Girl.

"I am beyond thrilled that James Deen and Lindsay Lohan will be playing the parts of Christian and Tara," tweeted Easton Ellis yesterday, adding: "Could not have dreamed of a better cast."

Lohan, who is shooting the Elizabeth Taylor biopic Liz & Dick, appeared to confirm the news by 'retweeting' Easton Ellis's post, although according to The Hollywood Gossip, the actress's lawyers are still working out "the details" of the film.  

One key point may be that the role requires full nudity, claims the Daily Mail, which if true, would be a far cry from the 25-year-old's days starring in Disney films Freaky FridayHerbie Fully Loaded and Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen.

However, a part in the independent thriller - budget $200,000 - could signal a comeback career for Lohan, who has struggled to win roles since 2004's Mean Girls.

And if Lohan is less-than comfortable going nude, her reluctance is more than made up for by her co-star. Apparently in response to Easton Ellis's news, Deen tweeted: "Ejaculating is overrated but still pretty damn awesome."

The actor has appeared in over 4,000 adult films and won seven awards for porn, including the prize for Best Unsung Swordsman. ·
