It appears Lindsay Lohan’s ongoing drug problems have given country sweetheart Taylor Swift her big movie break. Lohan had been projected to star in “One Night with You” but filmmakers have now considered go give the role to Swift. It’s the second major role Lohan has lost this year in April she was dropped from new movie “The Other Side”.
Writer/Producer Richard O’Sullivan had actually talked to Swift’s agent a few months back about replacing Lohan, but Taylor was in the middle of her tour. Now with Lohan’s ongoing legal battles, they have taken the offer back to Taylor.
O’Sullivan initially offered Lohan the lead role after he wrote it with her in mind. It’s been reported O’Sullivan has said, ‘It is ready-made for Lindsay… but we’re proceeding with extreme caution while the Lohan family sorts through their issues during a very trying time.’
The romantic comedy is about a young actress who joins a reality dating show in an attempt to salvage her career. But, as in most romantic comedies, things go awry when she becomes involved in a love/hate relationship with a handsome young bartender who hates the celebrity lifestyle.
Lohan, meanwhile, is still onboard to star in the Linda Lovelace biopic “Inferno”, despite repeated delays in filming caused by the actress’ ongoing issues.
It truly is a shame that Lohan is not able to get her act together. She has served two jail stints, the latest a 10 hour stint last Friday. I suppose the first step to recovery is that she admits she has a problem, which has done recently. Let’s hope she acts on it and finally get the help that she desperately needs.
