Looks like someone enjoyed Herbie: Fully Loaded just as much as we did. It’s a highly underrated film! Our eyebrows were raised to the very pinnacle of our foreheads last month when Woody Allen was spotted dining out with Lindsay Lohan in New York. Fandango was right not to start issuing tickets to Lindsay Christina Barcelona just yet (despite our fervent emails), because he hasn’t given Lindsay a role. Just heaps and heaps of praise! “No, but I wouldn’t hesitate to use her in a movie because she’s a very talented girl. That was a social dinner,” the director told Access Hollywood at this week’s To Rome With Love premiere. “But as I say, she’s a very gifted girl, and I would not hesitate. If I had something for her, I’d certainly call her.” Call her now! She’s got some spare time! After she wraps up with Lifetime, the woman has nothing but time!
If Lindsay is hoping to score lead role in one of Allen’s upcoming flick, she probably isn’t gunning for a Matchpoint remake. RadarOnline reports that the Liz & Dick actress is hesitating on officially joining Bret Easton Ellis‘s The Canyons due to the film’s mandatory sexiness. “Lindsay would be required to do full frontal nudity, and the sex scenes are very, very graphic,” their source claims. We understand, Lindsay. It’s not like posing for Playboy; it’s….oh wait, it’s actually more awesome and better for your career than Playboy. Sign that contract, girl! Concluded Woody, “If there was some legal reason I couldn’t [cast her], that would be a different story, but it would not concern me personally, no. I think that she’d be just fine and she’d do a great job.” Okay, okay, we know it doesn’t have to be a remake and that would quite honestly be insane but…do you know how great a Lindsay Lohan-lead Sleepers remake would be? Just something to mull over.
