IFC Films has released the first official trailer for director Paul Schrader’s (American Gigolo) new film The Canyons.  Written by Bret Easton Ellis (American Psycho), the film centers on the relationship between a wealthy movie producer and his girlfriend, who’s having an affair with an actor from her past.  Lindsay Lohan plays the girlfriend, while porn actor James Deen is the film’s male lead.  The trailer is pretty much what you’d expect from a Lindsay Lohan movie written by Bret Easton Ellis, as we see glimpses of sex, barely-clothed men, and, of course, a cameo by Gus Van Sant.  While Lohan showed promise all those years ago, her performance appears to be DOA in The Canyons.  I’m not really sure who the audience for this movie is, but I assume one exists.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer for yourself and to check out some NSFW images from the pic.  The film also stars Nolan Gerard Funk and Amanda Brooks. The Canyons will be available in limited release and on VOD and iTunes on August 2nd.

If you’ve ever been frustrated with Lindsay Lohan (Mean Girls) to the point that you just wished someone would scare some sense into her, James Deen is about to become your hero (if he wasn’t already).  We’d previously seen a series of parody trailers for director Paul Schrader’s erotic LA drama The Canyons, but now the first clip is available. In it, Lohan wanders about the apartment for a few minutes while Deen is sleeping peacefully.  Two guesses on who acts their part the best.  Hit the jump to watch the clip.

New CANYONS Trailer Reveals a Terrible Movie with Lindsay Lohan and Porn Star James Deen

by     Posted 2 years, 36 days ago

I was willing to give indie sexual thriller The Canyons after its first trailer promised a gritty, grindhouse feel, but the follow-up trailer for director Paul Schrader’s picture takes a whole new spin on things by playing up a 1950s melodramatic tone. Both trailers are clearly poking fun at the film itself with the first being more successful because it didn’t show any actual scenes of dialogue. They should have stuck with that plan. Principal actors Lindsay Lohan and porn star James Deen are unbearable for even this ninety-second trailer, so I can just imagine what sort of torture is in store for audiences when the indie film debuts “on an internet server of your choice.” Hit the jump to see for yourself.

First Trailer for THE CANYONS Starring Lindsay Lohan, Porn Star James Deen and Gus Van Sant

The first trailer has gone online for director Paul Schrader’s sexualized indie thriller, The Canyons.  Starring Lindsay Lohan, porn star James Deen and Gus Van Sant (really), The Canyons spins a tale on the dangers of sexual obsession and ambition among a group of twenty-somethings and a chance event that unravels all of their lives.  The trailer, presented in a grindhouse aesthetic with appropriate music and filters applied, introduces us to the characters and a sense of danger in the film, but gives little in the way of plot.  The Canyons, written by Bret Easton Ellis (American Psycho) also stars Nolan Funk and Amanda Brooks.  Hit the jump to check out the trailer.

Casting Call: Lindsay Lohan to Star Opposite Porn Star in Bret Easton Ellis’ THE CANYONS; Debbie Reynolds Joins Liberace Movie BEHIND THE CANDLEABRA

We’ve got a couple of casting stories to share this afternoon.  First up, Lindsay Lohan has joined director Paul Schrader’s indie sexual thriller The Canyons.  The script was written by American Psycho author Bret Easton Ellis and the early logline states that the film centers on a group of students who are trapped in shark-infested waters by a lunatic.  Ellis broke the news of Lohan’s involvement via Twitter, and THR confirms that she’s in talks to star opposite porn star James Deen.

The report has a slightly different synopsis than the shark-centered one, as THR says it follows sex and crime among a group of young twentysomethings in Los Angeles.  Deen will be playing “a manipulative trust-fund kid with dreams of making a movie” and Lohan plays his materialist girlfriend.  Hit the jump for news concerning Steven Soderbergh’s Liberace biopic Behind the Candleabra.
