Brett Easton Ellis and Paul Shrader make thriller staring Lohan and male porn star

A month or two back, Brett Easton Ellis tweeted how his new film noir script, The Canyons, he's trying to get made (with no less than Paul Schrader as director) would star porn star James Deen and was looking for funding via Kickstarter... Now he's tweeting that Lindsay Lohan will costar, and filming starts in July!

I'm not sure what to make of this, but I have to say that random foursome involved in one film does have me intrigued...

And apparently in Ellis' campaign to make the movie version of 50 Shades of Grey he sees Ian Somerhalder as the male lead, which I admit would be one of the few ways to get me to pay to see that movie... (at least that's what his tweets seem to say when he'snot busy reporting on his boyfriend who is refered to endlessly as "the 25 year old"). But I'm not sure about Lena Dunham playing opposite Ian--hasn't she had enough humiliating on screen sex?

(Oh and now that he wants to get back into music again, I nominate Giorgio Moroder doing one of his classic dark synth/somewhat porno scores for The Canyons, to fully bring back the glory of his work on Schrader's American Gigolo and Cat People)

Deen is a real throwback to the days of everyday guys with natural bodies who were also handsome and charismatic, like Eric Edwards (who should have had a mainstream career). He's a real anomaly in the world of porn. Of course porn is so much rougher these days...so I am not sure how likely anyone is to truly cross over. But the lines between porn and the average image you see in a movie or TV show have blurred so much, and the lack of big attention-getting stars might mean that someone who works in porn but who has talent beyond basic anatomy can make a career for themselves outside porn, if they get the chance.

(Apparently Deen does have a larger than average female fanbase ragradless, http://observer.com/2012/03/the-boyfriend-experience-bret-easton-ellis-porn-star-james-deen-the-canynons-03072012/ )

(Agreed Jack, it's all bizarre).

Ellis has already been praising Deen, but I get what you're saying Carl (though I've seen very little of his work). Porn and the mainstream are definitely blurring more and more, and I see it soon becoming far less of an issue for a crossover, at least in R/NC17 movies, although Deen is also known for his very rough porn, as you say which might make it harder.

A lot of Deen's stuff involves - or involved, I don't know, I'm going on an interview from a year or two ago - punishing women. This always has a following (with a lot of men and a lot of women), and I guess his boy next door image is a contrast to that. Maybe they can give him a show on FX...

I guess a lot of women are just happy to see something they can relate to, or they feel is catered to them, since the prevailing media view of women in bondage seems to be anonymonous women in tight leather who hate themselves and are damned.

The ad for the movie is kind of bad. It's not The Hills? Hello 2006.

Bret Easton Ellis is my favourite modern author so anything he does I'm going to be watching. And James Deen? wub.png

And Ian Somerhalder, who has previously worked with Bret on The Rules of Attraction, where I first fell in love with his sexy, would actually make me see whatever movie they can muster from that horrible "book."

Haven't we all?

Oh, Lindsay. You had so much potential. Now, all I want to do is bring you to my bosom like it's "The Member of the Wedding" and I'm Ethel Waters.

Who is LD?

I see Lindsay Lohan is inching ever closer to that career in hardcore porn I predicted for her over 5 years ago.

I wish I could say she's a [[email protected]#$%^&*] up because of the drugs -- sadly I think it is her entitled attitude and need for a fame at all costs which has brought her to this.

And I would watch Ian Somerhalder in anything -- even 50 Shades of Grey.
