Lindsay Lohan has been in the media spotlight lately, and unfortunately, not for future roles in Hollywood. Â It’s never a good thing for an actress to be in the spotlight so much for reasons that bring about bad press, and poor Lindsay Lohan has had a lot of that lately.
Inferno Removes Lindsay Lohan From Lead Role
Lindsay Lohan was supposed to headline Inferno: A Linda Lovelace Story from Matthew Wilder, but unfortunately that’s not happening anymore. Â The young actress was dropped from the film, and Deadline has reported thatÂ Malin Akerman will instead play Linda Lovelace. Â Apparently “Lindsay was dropped as she’s impossible to insure and the producers loved Malin.” Â Akerman has starred in 27 Dresses, Watchmen, andÂ Couples Retreat and has a number of projects currently in development. Â Sadly, it’s understandable that those behind Inferno would be wary of keeping Lohan on and they had to do what’s best for the movie–replace her. Â Is Malin Akerman the right choice? Â Entertainment Weekly points out that her recent projects do include indie movies (The Big Bang Club and Happythankyoumoreplease) and she did have a sex scene in Watchmen. Â Guess audiences will just have to wait to pass judgment until the movie is released.
