The title of this article is “Here Is What Happens When You Cast Lindsay Lohan in Your Movie,” and as you might expect, the entire story is just one long anecdote about a calm, unexciting filmmaking process. Just kidding! It’s basically the “Anarchist Cookbook” of articles about movies.
No, Lindsay Lohan probably isn’t up for a role in the new “Superman” movie. But under TMZ’s incredibly SEO-happy headline, this story would like you to believe otherwise. Until this is reported by, you know, the people who report this type of news, there is no reason to believe it. There are charges of felony grand theft, there are obviously lengthy and well-documented personal issues, there’s the well-documented unreliability on film sets, there’s the issue of insurance bonding and, of course, there’s a time-sensitive franchise being overseen by precise and careful people like Christopher Nolan. Other than that, she’s probably your next Lois Lane.
