Lindsay Lohan and James Deen Go Grindhouse in ‘The Canyons’ Trailer


When we caught an early peek at writer Bret Easton Ellis and director Paul Schrader’s The Canyons, it looked like a lame compilation of shots from The Hills. A new teaser for the contemporary LA noir tale written by the American Psycho scribe reveals a retro vibe. The Playlist shared a new clip promoting the movie about Lindsay Lohan and porn star James Deen’s dalliance with sexual obsession and professional paranoia, and it’s cut grindhouse-style. In the clip, we get to see the first real footage of the upcoming film, hinting at the trashy, drug-fueled storyline.

The Canyons hasn’t locked down a release date yet, but the official Facebook page indicates that Lohan was shown a cut of the movie. “Showed LL the film tonight. She saw and she understood. What a wonderful moment for her. Some tears, some hard words, some kisses but that’s life in Lindsayland. Sometimes the movie gods smile. Sometimes you get lucky. LL and I got lucky.” Now that we know Ellis won’t be writing the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey remake, maybe he’ll have more time on his hands to share a Canyons preview with actual dialogue. We shudder to think what that might be like, but we’re truly hoping for the best. Click through for the trailer.
