I know you were all awaiting this news with baited breath. It's time to exhale. According to Variety, Lindsey Lohan will still be appearing in the grandest grandma gangster flick to hit the tarmac. Yes! Our media darling is still going to be in Poor Things
The move comes at Lindsey's own request. She asked producers to switch their schedule around so that she could still make it to the party. If you didn't know, the girl almost had to drop out earlier this week due to her stint in rehab after a DUI arrest.
Shirley MacLaine and Rob Hickman are producing the piece. They were the ones who switched everything around to accommodate the actress. In a statement, MacLaine and Hickman stated, "In the spirit of helping Lindsay Lohan and her rehabilitation, we have been asked by Lindsay to comply with her wishes to continue working on Poor Things. We are trying to rearrange the shooting schedule to facilitate her working at the end of the shoot to coincide with the completion of her rehabilitation. We wish her love and the blending of mind, body and spirit."
Poor Things, directed by Sasha Baron Cohen's brother Ash Baron Cohen, will begin shooting next week.
