I don’t think really anyone expected it to turn this way, but hey. I suppose when you’re dealing with a Lohan, anything’s possible.
After hours of deliberation, a judge found Lindsay to be in violation of her probation, and it looks like they’re pushing the ‘guilty’ card in that pesky stolen necklace business.
Linds posted bail, but is on her way to jail to be processed (a new mugshot, what what!). I guess the good news is that her grand theft felony charge was reduced to a misdemeanor, which will head to court on May 11th. She was also awarded 480 hours of community service in addition to her four-month jail sentence, some of which will be spent at the LA County morgue.
Way to go, Lindsay!
Yesterday I told you that Lindsay would not be appearing in Gotti: Three Generations because she and the producers “just couldn’t reach terms.” Well, I wasn’t wrong, but things change. It turns out that Lindsay will be in the film, because you can achieve anything if you believe hard enough.
Again, the story comes from People:
“She was definitely out as of earlier today, but she really wanted the part,” Marc Fiore tells PEOPLE.
“She not only is back in the movie, but she single-handedly put it all together,” says the producer. “She called me personally and put her team on it and we came to an agreement.”
He added that Lohan, 24, was “no nonsense,” when it came to making the deal happen. “She played a real leadership role.”
But Lohan will not play Victoria Gotti as had originally been reported. Instead, she will play Kim Gotti, the wife of John Gotti Jr., in the flick, which stars John Travolta.
Fiore calls the Kim character “a very important role” and says Lohan is “very excited about the part.”
Fiore says Lohan is in for a two picture deal, which also includes his other mafia movie, Mob Street, in which she will play the wife of the lead character Bobby Bataglia.
So not only did Lindsay get the job back, she also lined up a gig in another movie at the same time. Pretty impressive, girl. Lesson learned: never try to hustle a hustler.
Last week, you might recall that Lindsay Lohan was tragically parading around at that press conference for the Gotti: Three Generations movie because she thought she was going to play Victoria up there. Yeah, you might recall we had our doubts about the legitimacy of that, and it turns out that, as usual, we were right.
“We are not talking any further about Lindsay playing Victoria,” says Marc Fiore, producer ofGotti: Three Generations. “She is no longer being considered. The talks have stopped. We are going to meet with other people [for the role].”
“She a wonderful person,” he tells PEOPLE. “Her legal case has nothing to do with it. We just couldn’t reach terms.”
Do you think that by “we just couldn’t reach terms” he meant “we just couldn’t support her meth habit“? Am I the only one picking up on that particular subtext?
