Porn star James Deen will play the male lead opposite Lindsay Lohan in Paul Schrader’s indie thriller “The Canyons” says AVN.
“American Psycho” author Bret Easton Ellis scripted the film and revealed the news via his Twitter feed, saying “I am beyond thrilled that James Deen and Lindsay Lohan will be playing the parts of Christian and Tara in ‘The Canyons’.”
Deen however says he has yet to officially sign on to the project. Shooting aims to kick off in Los Angeles next month.
Ellis recently stated he wants to write the script for the big screen take on E.L. James’ steamy novel “Fifty Shades of Grey”. He also hinted at whom he would like to direct and star – “David Cronenberg and Alexander Skarsgard is a no-brainer. I’ve seen Alexander naked so many times at the gym that we both attend: perfect casting.”
