Embattled actress Lindsay Lohan wasn't lying when she told a Los Angeles judge she had a movie lined up in Texas, she's in negotiations to star in a new film alongside Willie Nelson. The country legend has set up his own production company with actor pal Kerry Wallum and the pair plans to cast the "Mean Girls" star in the firm's first film, "The Dry Gulch Kid".
Nelson and Wallum's Luck Films company is based in Luck, Texas. The two pals plan to produce three to five films a year, each costing $3 million or less. Wallum tells WENN, "We are in negotiations with Lindsay and look forward to possibly working with her. 'The Dry Gulch Kid' is a really good story and the film will feature myself, Willie Nelson and a host of other well-known names."
In court on Monday, May 24, Lohan's lawyer Shawn Chapman Holley objected to restrictions placed on the actress, which will prevent her from leaving the Los Angeles area. Lohan appeared before Judge Marsha Revel on Monday morning, five days after she failed to appear at a mandatory hearing, and was ordered to refrain from drinking or doing drugs for the foreseeable future.
The judge, who initially issued a warrant for the star's arrest last Thursday, May 20 after she failed to show up, told Lohan she could remain free on bail, but she must wear a SCRAM device on her ankle and submit to random drug tests. Judge Revel also insisted the actress must attend weekly alcohol education classes.
The lawmaker ruled that Lohan risked jail if she failed to comply with any of the stipulations of her bail. Holley pointed out that the restrictions would prevent Lohan from traveling to Texas for a movie, but the judge was unsympathetic. Wallum says, "I hope she was referring to our movie."
