Lindsay Lohan was supposed to start filming on “Poor Things” once she got out of rehab, but apparently the producer pulled the plug on the film because Lindsay’s behavior in Las Vegas over the weekend worried insurers. GE and Dell were promised placement in the movie but got an email from the set designer saying:
‘Poor Things’ has been cancelled
Sorry to be the harbinger of bad news, but I just received a call from Jacky Gilardi, the producer, pulling the plug on the ill-fated film.
Apparently, Ms. Lohan’s antics in Las Vegas over the weekend have scared the bond companies and all of the funding has been pulled … I look forward to working together in the future and trust our next project will not be as fraught with difficulty.
I’d be worried about financing a film with Lindsay Lohan too. Halfway through filming she’d end up crashing her car through the set and driving over half the cast. She’d stumble out of the car and point her finger at everybody, telling them to act cool, then point to her cartoonishly large alcohol monitoring anklet (which nobody actually checks) and go, “See guys. I’m wearing this. This means I dinin’ haf anything to drink. Nod even one drop.” Then she’d curl up on the floor and fall asleep, with three people dead under her car and everybody else standing in a circle with their mouths open.
