'The Canyons' '30s Comedy' Trailer with Lindsay Lohan

'American Gigolo' director Paul Schrader teams up with 'American Psycho' writer Bret Easton Ellis for this dark thriller set in present day Los Angeles.
Director Paul Schrader (American Gigolo) and writer Bret Easton Ellis (American Psycho) have teamed up for The Canyons, a dark thriller about youth, glamour, and sex in Los Angeles circa 2012. The movie hasn't been given an official release date just yet, but a third trailer has dropped, this time spoofing the black & white comedies of the 1930s. Watch as Lindsay Lohan tries her hand at screwball comedy, which isn't quite the tone we'll see on screen when this hits later in the year.


The official Facebook page for The Canyons offers this explanation for of the trailer.

"Last of the trailers (parody, that is). Nikolai Mentin, the editing intern who helped us out in NY, was kind enough to put together one last teaser, this is the style of the Thirities. It was fun teasing with these. People wanted images from the film and I didn't want to do anything definitive until a distributor was on board so these teasers were an interim solution. The film is now completed and the next step is to screen for multi-platform distribs."

The Canyons was released August 2nd, 2013 and stars Lindsay Lohan, James Deen, Nolan Gerard Funk, Amanda Brooks, Tenille Repinski, Gus Van Sant, Jarod Einsohn, Chris Zeischegg. The film is directed by Paul Schrader.

    @ejk1 So true, when I watched her old movies there was no dount in my mind that she would go on to make a name for herself. Unfortunatly the name she made was one to be avoided. Now she has become a walking parody of herself and while I still see the talent in her old movies I can NOT take her seriously anymore. @john-m

    @john-m@dan1 I feel bad for Lindsay. She had talent, probably still does, but will most likely never reach her potential. She acted as many teenagers do by rebelling, but unlike some of those type of teens, she did not have the adult supervision necessary to rein her in. As a matter of fact, those parents of hers are easily the biggest reason for her downfall, in my opinion. Lindsay could've been a great actress for decades to come, but now she appears more likely to be a cautionary tale.

    Lindsey had so much potential as she became a actress with The Parent Trap, Freaky Friday and Mean Girls. She was a decent actress who had potential to become a good actress, and she was beautiful. Now Lindsey is a train wreak all you have to do is watch that Lifetime biography film of Elizabeth Taylor to see that, and I have a feeling this film will be as well.
