Lohan Vs. Producers: “Scary Movie 5” In Peril
Okay, “peril” may be a strong word, but apparently Lindsay Lohan is taking the masterpiece that will be the fifth installment of the “Scary Movie” franchise way serious. She signed on to film a small cameo alongside fellow hot mess Charlie Sheen, then apparently started to balk when she realized she’d be making fun of herself. I suppose she’s never watched the other films in the series.
“Lindsay missed every meeting she had for the film, including script reads and wardrobe meetings,” said a “source” to the New York Post. “Then she missed her flight to Atlanta on Sunday to shoot the movie. The producers had been getting signs Friday that she was a mess, and would not be fit to work. She is under contract — so to get out of it, she had to prove that she was sick. She tried to prove she has walking pneumonia.”
She did end up making an appearance to film, although it was only after the producers threatened her with a lawsuit for breach of contract. They reportedly had to send a private jet to her in an effort to speed up the process.
Lohan has always been notoriously “difficult” when it comes time to do what she’s paid to do, and has even been accused of trashing priceless items loaned to her while on the set of “Liz And Dick”. So far, she’s not made a statement about this latest batch of rumors.
