We now know what project Lindsay Lohan will be dropping out of next -- Poor Things, a comedy about a gang of grannies with Shirley MacLaine and Olympia Dukakis as said grannies. Lohan, Rosario Dawson and Channing Tatum have all joined the film, though I can't quite figure out why. Since the script seems to focus mainly on the grannies and their various gang-like activities -- Variety isn't clear on what kind of activities, exactly -- what kind of parts will there be for the twenty-somethings? The script, by Trent Haaga who wrote -- I kid you not -- Citizen Toxie, is supposedly inspired by some real headlines about some grannie gangs who were involved in everything from insurance scams to drugs and murders, but the whole thing sounds frankly made up to me. Someone show me a newspaper item about a ruthless gang of grannies terrorizing our streets.
Shooting on the film is set to begin next week, and Dawson could presumably have to work around Sin City 2, which is prepping for a summer start. As for Lohan, she's currently getting a lot of attention for the stripping video we reported on earlier, put up as part of the blog for her new film I Know Who Killed Me, but other than that, no wild, out of control antics to report this week. If and when Lohan does decide to dump these grannies, Sienna Miller will probably be standing by to take over and Cinematical will be there to report on it.
