Lindsay took time out of her car-crashing schedule to sign on for The Canyons, a film that L.A. Times says is "a dark tale of twentysomethings seeking sex and success in contemporary Los Angeles." So in that regard it's no different than anything that Brett Easton Ellis has ever done.

Lohan will join male porn star James Deen in the film. Deen is a bit of an anomaly in the adult film world, as he has rather subdued looks for a porn star, and consequently has a large female fan base.

The Canyons is written by Brett Easton Ellis and will be directed by Taxi Driver screenwriter Paul Schrader.

The big question is: Can Lindsay stay sober and out of trouble long enough to play an oversexed junkie? Who knows. But it will be fun to watch her try.
