On Jan. 23, new reports say Lindsay Lohan's film "The Canyons" was rejected by South by Southwest (SXSW), a fresh blow since the movie was also turned down by the Sundance Film Festival.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the reason officials of the gathering may have nixed the Bret Easton Ellis flick from the Austin-based festival in a movie that has been dubbed "a monstrosity" was a lot of "quality issues" regarding this Hollywood product.
And so, while LiLo's latest film, a thriller co-starring James Deen that tells the erotic tale of sexual obsession and super natural ambition, does not appear to be going to Texas, even though the powers that be on this project have not been officially given word of this rejection, Lohan is also dealing with other tough to take issues.
In fact, the often troubled actress is said to have been rejected by her attorney, Shawn Holley. The lawyer, who has been by Lindsay's side many times during the past few years, was allegedly fired by Lohan only to be replaced by Mark Heller, who, unknown to LiLo at the time, had his official license to practice law in the Golden State revoked for five years.
Although Heller can now reportedly work as an attorney once again in California, Lindsay apparently realized that Holley might be a better representative for her legal problems. The most recent is dealing with being accused of lying to police when the 22-year-old was involved in an accident last summer at which time she allegedly stated that she had not been driving at the time the incident occurred.
So, now Lohan is said to want Shawn Holley back. However, the lawyer has allegedly decided this is not something she is willing to do. In fact, Holley, a very successful Beverly Hills attorney, has rejected Lindsay's change of heart regarding her legal services and doesn't plan to represent the "Mean Girls" thespian again. In fact, she is currently filing the papers required to be taken off the case.
