Another day, another legal battle for the Lohans. The awesomely-named “Dogs in Pocketbooks,” a potential movie based on Lindsay Lohan‘s
trainwreck life, has gotten mama bear Dina Lohan dialing up the lawyers. Socialite and heiress Lydia Hearst is rumored to be playing the starlet based on LiLo, alongside Joan Collins as a high-powered agent, in this “spoof” on the “obsession with modern celebrity.”
“Lydia will play a bratty movie goddess in and out of rehab, in trouble with the law, and hounded by greedy agents, predatory paparazzi, off-the-wall stalkers and crazed media — a role obviously based on Lindsay Lohan,” screenwriter Charles Casillo told the New York Post.“I spent a lot of time casting for the right actress for this screwball comedy, but Lydia is perfect. She’s one of the few supermodels who can actually act. She’s smart, well-read, charming and very beautiful. We looked at a lot of actresses for this role, and I was really knocked out.”
Dina, however, is not amused.
“We have a very strong case. It’s shadowing E*TRADE,” the angry mama told celebrity gossip blog TMZ, referring to the $100 million lawsuit the Lohans filed regarding the E*TRADE commercial about a “milkaholic” baby named Lindsay, which the actress settled. (Erm, depends on what your definition of “strong case” is, Dina.) Mama Lohan added, ominously, “Anyone bringing negativity will be dealt with accordingly.”
The Lohans lawyer also chimed in: “They are again using her likeness without her being compensated. Not only that but they are advertising the fact that they are using her likeness.” Okay, they have a point there. But despite Casillo’s public comments that Hearst, 26, is attached to the film, she recently tweeted her only involvement in two other films. Maybe she’s been scared away? Don’t Mess With The Lohan!
Oh, silly Lohans! Why don’t you get involved with “Dogs In Pocketbooks” and make sure the script is a touching redemption narrative starring a saintly actress and her mother-of-the-year?
