Lindsay Lohan attended a press conference to announce her new movie Inconceivable at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival on Monday afternoon, and the 27-year-old actress chatted with The Wall Street Journal about her latest creative endeavor.
Lilo revealed that she will start shooting the movie in March, and Lionsgate will be releasing the flick in limited theaters and video on demand through its Grindhouse division.
“The money was very easy because Lindsay is still considered a star among independent financiers,” Emmett/Furla Films chief executive Randall Emmett said of the $5 million film. (FYI, this is the same independent film company that most recently produced the new Mark Wahlberg flick Lone Survivor.) “I went to the insurance company and they met with Lindsay. They put a policy in place where everybody worked together to make it happen. It was actually easier than you might think.”
Lindsay added, “It’s nice to have someone like Randall give me the opportunity and put his faith and trust in me. It’s time for me to get back on set.”
While we've always been big Lilo supporters, the WSJ does make a pretty interesting point in that Lohan has not starred in film that grossed more than $100,000 since 2007. Despite the fuss over The Canyons last year, the film earned a paltry $51,135 at the box office. Maybe this will be her big comeback?
