Lindsay reportedly wasn’t “bankable” enough for the film. Would you go to the movies just to see Lindsay in action?
I hope you weren’t too excited to see Lindsay Lohan in The Other Side, as TMZ is reporting she’s been DROPPED from the movie! A source involved in production of The Other Side says Lindsay wasn’t “bankable” enough to star in the movie, which is about a grad student who has to work on a deserted island.
Lindsay hasn’t been officially replaced yet, but The Other Side‘s writer/director David Michaels tells the site: “Our team simply chose to move on from Lindsay and we’ll soon be announcing a replacement.” Had she been kept in the movie, Lindsay would have starred alongside Alanis Morissette, Dave Matthews, Woody Harrelson and Giovanni Ribisi.
Lindsay last acted on the small screen in the 2009 ABC Family original movie Labor Pains, in which she played a girl who had to fake a pregnancy to keep her job. And if you’re hungry for more Lindsay, her next big screen appearance will be 2010’s Machete, which is based on the knife-wielding character introduced as part of a fake trailer in 2007’s Grindhouse.
BFFs — is Lindsay really not “bankable,” as that one source says? We’ve already decided she might have the most dysfunctional family in Hollywood. Would you steer clear of a movie just because Lindsay was the star?
