Lindsay Lohan's on the verge of signing her first big contract out of rehab -- in fact, we're told the actress is in "final talks" to play John Gotti's daughter Victoria in the upcoming biopic about the mafioso's life.
As we previously reported, John Travolta is currently hammering out a deal to play the bossman himself.
It's no small movie either -- according to sources, the budget so far is $75 million.
No word yet on what Lindsay would be getting paid -- but hey, a job's a job.
^ Howard Beach meets Merrick!! Funny, really, because they all grew up right near one another...New York High Society, for sure...
And the producers are going to get a completion bond for Lindsay- How?? I thought this biopic was filming soon- what are the odds that Lindsay has her head on straight, is out of trouble(s) and not locked up for the next 8-10 months??
The heck with playing Sharon Tate- GARBO!! That's Lindsay!!
Lindsay Lohan arrives at LAX with friends including Lady Victoria Hervey. Lohan was looking slightly dishevelled in a stained white shirt as she was chaperoned through the airport by security. April 6, 2010.
Lindsay Lohan beat out Blake Lively AND Sienna Miller for her new role as Victoria Gotti -- and TMZ has learned ... Victoria herself made sure that happened.
Sources close to the production tell TMZ, producers were considering both Blake and Sienna for the role -- but John Gotti's famously blonde daughter wasn't having it, insisting Lindsay get the role instead ... and producers loved the idea.
Not all that surprising -- according to sources, Victoria is a good friend of the Lohan family ... and she often spends time with them on Long Island.
Meanwhile, Lindsay is currently in L.A. auditioning for "Superman" -- but we're told she already has a plane ticket back to NYC for April 12th ... to close the Gotti deal for good
BTW: Ever notice how big, money in the bank acting roles materialize out of thin air for Lindsay right before she has to go to court- none of which ever amount to anything? "Your Honor, Miss Lohan has gotten her life together and is getting back to work in a major way- you just can't lock the poor girl up now!!!"
^ Yes, well, now that people around New York are no longer scared to death of her father and his 'associates', she and her family are regarded as something of a joke, the cartoon character daughter of a mob boss...I really can't see that Blake or Sienna were ever seriously considering playing this part but this whole questionable story of Lindsay and her latest fantasy 'big deal' fits right in with the last several Big Deals that never amounted to anything but a couple of meaningless press releases... I guess it gets media coverage for the film and Lindsay and her gang will go along with just about anything these days to avoid facing their increasing irrelevance...
wow haven't been in this thread for a while, it got a little too sad to come into. I mean obviously she's nowhere near where she was but at least she's getting offered roles? or something? i don't know what to think anymore..
