Lindsay Lohan Eyes Ben Affleck's 'Live by Night' as Next Starring Vehicle


The 'Mean Girls' actress is reportedly 'close to signing on' to star in the adaptation of Dennis Lehane's novel.

On the heels of praise she earned for her performance in "The Canyons", Lindsay Lohan reportedly seeks a potential starring gig that might get her another another positive review or even an award. According to a report from Showbiz 411, the singer and actress is "close to signing on" to play in Ben Affleck's directorial effort "Live by Night".

Adapted from Dennis Lehane's novel, the film centers on Joe Coughlin, the black-sheep son of a police captain who gets involved in escalating levels of organized crime. The "Freaky Friday" actress is predicted to take on the role of Emma, the tough waitress with a heart of gold who gets involved with the lead.

Ever since he became attached to direct and star in the Leonardo DiCaprio-produced pic, Affleck has not found any co-star yet. If Lohan is indeed courted for the Warner Bros. project and eventually involved in it, she will team up for the first time with the Tony Mendez of "Argo".

Lohan recently received a good review from Variety film critic Scott Foundas, who compared her performance with Marlon Brando's in "Lost Tango in Paris". "Wow...humbled and feeling so much gratitude," she tweeted in response to it.

After completing her rehab stint, Lohan will fulfill her work commitments, including a guest hosting gig on "Chelsea Lately".
