Lindsay Lohan Announces New Project 'Inconceivable' At Sundance
Lindsay Lohan made her first appearance at the Sundance Film Festival and announced her next project, Inconceivable, which she will produce and star in.
Lindsay Lohan Announces First Role Post-Rehab
Lohan held a press conference at Sundance to share the news of her upcoming film, her first comeback project since her most recent trip to rehab, and the entire thing was caught on cameras shooting her reality television show for OWN, the Oprah Winfrey Network. Though holding a press conference to announce an upcoming project at Sundance is unconventional, Lohan told reporters that she wanted to make her first Sundance experience the start of the next chapter in her life.
“I’ve never had the honor of coming here before… to bring something to the table, which is starting fresh for me,” Lohan said.
Fellow Inconceivable producer, Randall Emmett, was by her side during the press conference, and recounted how it was Lohan who found the script and brought it to him to produce.
“She read the script, she called, she said, ‘We’re making this movie, are you in or out?’ I said, ‘I’m in,’” Emmett said.
This will be Lohan’s second time acting as a producer – she was a co-producer of her most recent feature film The Canyons – and she plans to be involved every step of the way, from choosing a director to casting.
“It’s therapeutic for me to throw myself into something that really excited me and something that I love to do so much. There’s nothing better than having seen all your ideas and thoughts that you’ve been thinking about to come to fruition and to share that with people. I think that’s why I’ve always loved making movies so much. So it’s nice to be able to have another position in the film rather than just showing up and being on the set,” Lohan said.
Lohan will star in the psychological thriller about a lost woman, but no other details have been announced. Lohan did reveal at the press conference that she has attempted to reach out to Juliette Lewis to be a part of the film and that Jessica Lange is at the top of her wish list for co-stars.
Lohan posted photos from her Sundance debut on her official website along with the message, “So honored to attend my first Sundance. Even more excited for what’s to come!”
