Lindsay Lohan and James Deen star in The Canyons trailer
Lindsay Lohan‘s career is one of the more tragic Hollywood stories. An extremely talented, young actress finds success in Hollywood, then through bad decisions and horrible parents, finds herself addicted to all kinds of drugs, then in and out of rehab. Her exploits are more legend now than reality, but through all the paparazzi and rehab stints, I’ve always felt there was still some talent underneath it all. But Lindsay Lohan has a long way to go to prove it and it all starts with THE CANYONS. The film has had a few weird trailers, but this is the first one that actually shows us some real footage from the movie. The film from director Paul Schrader and screenwriter Bret Easton Ellis stars Lindsay Lohan, porn star James Deen, Nolan Gerard Funk and Amanda Brooks. The film will have a limited release in New York on August 2nd and on iTunes and VOD the same day.
THE CANYONS official synopsis: Christian is a young LA trust-fund dude who’s financing a horror film simply to keep his dad off his back about doing something with his life. He has been dating Tara for about a year — she was an aspiring actress/model who settled down with him when the reality of the business became apparent to her. She’s now just Christian’s bored plaything. Christian’s assistant Gina is casting the film with assistance from Tara. Gina is pushing Ryan, her boyfriend and struggling actor, for the lead. Unbeknownst to either Christian or Gina, Ryan and Tara were a couple three years ago. When Ryan came back into Tara’s life during the auditions for the movie, they reignited their affair. But Christian, a dangerous control-freak, finds out about the affair and starts playing cruel mind games with both Tara and Ryan, which escalate into an act of bloody violence.
