Desperately trying to get her career back on track, the troubled starlet is trying hard to land the lead role in 'Alice in Wonderland'.
Facing downfall in her filming career following bad reports of her last year, Lindsay Lohan is reported to be eyeing on Tim Burton's upcoming adaptation "Alice in Wonderland". Many reports claimed that the actress is desperate to get the leading role in the part-animation fantasy film.
To Harper's Bazaar, Lohan revealed that her priority in this new year is meeting the acclaimed "Sweeney Todd" director and landing the role. On the occasion, she said, "I hope they don't want an unknown." Other reports stated that the actress believes that she is the perfect fit for portraying the titular character. Reports claimed that Lohan said, "I hope they don't give it to an unknown. I'm ideal. I could really do it justice. I've been down the role."
Meanwhile, about the film project, Burton revealed that doing the project is a challenge for him. He said, "It's just such a classic, and the imagery is so surreal. I don't know - I've never seen a version where I feel like they got it all. It's a series of weird adventures, and to try to do it where it works as a movie will be interesting. The stories are like drugs for children, you know? It's like, 'Whoa, man.' I think it's an interesting challenge to direct."
Lohan has suffered a set back in her career after she was caught in two DUI incidents which led her to rehab and a brief time behind bars. Prior to her troubles, she was famous in teenage movies, including "Freaky Friday", "Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen", "Mean Girls" and "Herbie: Fully Loaded". Aside from the teenage films, she has also landed supporting parts in ensemble comedy film "A Prairie Home Companion" and in historical drama "Bobby".
