Remember when Lindsay Lohan was the biggest deal on the planet. Movies, music, commercials, magazine covers. The red haired vixen was a less dysfunctional but not a rich version of today’s Bella Thorne. Then came the drinking, drugs, weird liaisons with trust-fund baby after trust-fund baby. Then she laid low despite a low-key comeback that barely made a blip.
Now the actress is set to take the world by storm again, the streaming world that is.
Lohan’s deal comes following her attachment to Falling for Christmas, a holiday rom-com that is slated to debut on Netflix later this year. In it, she plays a newly engaged, spoiled hotel heiress who gets into a skiing accident, suffers from total amnesia and finds herself in the care of a handsome, blue-collar lodge owner (Chord Overstreet) and his precocious daughter in the days leading up to Christmas.
Netflix previously released the series Sick Note, in which Lohan featured, in concert with Sky One, and is also currently home to Scary Movie V, in which she co-starred.
“We’re so happy with our collaboration with Lindsay to date, and we’re thrilled to continue our partnership with her,” said Netflix’s Director of Independent Film, Christina Rogers. “We look forward to bringing more of her films to our members around the world.”
