Lohan To Team Up With Heroine In Williams Screenplay
LINDSAY LOHAN's dreams of working with her movie heroine ANNMARGRET are to be realised - they'll play relatives in a new film based on a long-forgotten TENNESSEE WILLIAMS screenplay. Lohan will play the unruly daughter of a 1920s Memphis, Tennessee plantation owner who passes her down-and-out boyfriend off as a well-to-do suitor in THE LOSS OF A TEARDROP DIAMOND. Her lover will be played by CHRIS EVANS, while Ann-Margret will play the snobbish spinster aunt of Lohan's character. Another acting great, ELLEN BURSTYN, will play Lohan's mother in the film, which will also feature GOOD NIGHT, AND GOOD LUCK star DAVID STRATHAIRN. The script, which was first published in the collection STOPPED ROCKING + OTHER SCREENPLAYS in 1984, was discovered after Williams' death and is believed to have been written in the 1950s. Lohan has often spoken of her fondness for Ann-Margret in interviews and imitated her on satire show SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE in April (06).
