LATEST: Lindsay Lohan has been added to the star-studded cast of Emilio Estevez's new politically-charged movie about former US presidential hopeful Robert F Kennedy.

THE BREAKFAST CLUB star, who will direct and act in the film, has already signed up Demi Moore, SIR Anthony Hopkins, Elijah Wood and Sharon Stone for BOBBY.

Producer EDWARD BASS says, "Lindsay, who you do not think of as an indie film actress, is an inspired choice and is the heart of the movie."

The film will mix fact and fiction to chronicle the intertwining lives of a host of characters, all of whom are present at Los Angeles' Ambassador Hotel in the hours leading up to Kennedy's 1968 assassination.
