Lindsay Lohan could be a good actress if she puts her ''addictions'' behind her, 'Scary Movie 5' filmmaker David Zucker has claimed.
The 26-year-old star has the potential to be a ''really good'' actress if she puts her wild antics behind after completing her upcoming 90-day stint in rehab as part of her plea deal on charges of lying to police about driving during a car crash in June 2012.
Speaking at the Hollywood premiere of the new horror/comedy sequel at the ArcLight Cimenas Cinerama Dome, David told the New York Daily News newspaper: ''She's a troubled human and she was late a lot to the set, but she knew her lines and she's a good actress.

Lindsay Lohan and Charlie Sheen will star as ''the world's hottest new couple'' in 'Scary Movie 5' before tragically being killed off in the film's opening sequence.

Lindsay Lohan and Charlie Sheen have joined the cast of 'Scary Movie 5' which also stars Ashley Tisdale.

Zucker, along with his filmmaking partner brother Jerry and Jim Abrahams, gave Nielsen his first major comedy role in 1980's Airplane! and they went on to work together on numerous films including The Naked Gun series.
The director remained life-long friends with the actor, who died on Sunday (28Nov10), and has written a tribute for the Hollywood Reporter.
Zucker describes his first meeting with Nielsen when he auditioned for Airplane! and reveals he found an actor with a "natural instinct" for comedy. He also remembers Nielsen's sense of humour and love of pranks.

Michael Malone (Kevin Farley) is a documentary filmmaker famous for his anti-USA efforts like America Sucks the Big One. On the strength of his celebrity, he's organized a march against the Fourth of July. While his agent (James Woods) thinks he's crazy, a group of terrorists led by the evil Aziz (Robert Davi) think he's the perfect patsy for their ongoing jihad. They hire him to make a "movie" which is actually a front for a suicide bombing at a Trace Adkins concert. Happy to pursue his radical idealistic ends, Malone is suddenly visited by the ghost of his idol, JFK (Chris Anglin). He warns that he will be visited by three more ghosts, including Gen. George F. Patton (Kelsey Grammer). All hope to change his left-leaning ways, guiding him toward a more patriotic position.

But Airplane! doesn't reign just by calling firsties. Or rather, it does - because it hit the bull's eye so dead-center that there wasn't much room left for other arrows. It purportedly spoofs the airplane-based disaster movies so popular at the time of its 1980 release, but much of the main plot (a scarred war pilot must attempt to land a passenger jet during a storm when the crew falls ill) and even some specific scene are lifted from the little-known 1957 B-movie Zero Hour (unseen by me); it simultaneously satirizes one particularly obscure film, '70s disaster films, and every bad B-movie you've ever seen.

Scary Movie 3 sticks with the program: mind-bogglingly dumb characters hustle their way through spoofs of the industry's most popular recent films. It's no mistake that the roasted movies -- in this case: Signs, The Ring, and 8 Mile -- all pull in huge money and attract a young audience.
