I’ve been seeing tweets excited about a Lohanaissance after this news, to which I say “wait a minute.” We haven’t heard much about Lindsay Lohan since she got sued by Harper Collins last fall for accepting a $365k advance on a book she never delivered. Lindsay has been trying different money-making schemes, like Cameo, NFTs, making music and getting sponsors. Now she’s going to go back to acting. Lindsay got a bonafide acting gig in a Netflix Christmas movie. Did they not review her long record of costing productions money and running businesses into the ground before hiring her? Lindsay said in January of last year that she was planning to move back to the states to act again and that sounds like it’s working out. She was in Dubai just last week though so we’ll see.

Lindsay Lohan, who has largely foregone acting in recent years, will soon star in a yet-to-be-titled Netflix holiday rom-com. The streamer has made a robust business out of Christmas fare, and its original movies such as “Jingle Jangle,” “A Christmas Prince,” “The Christmas Chronicles” and “The Princess Switch” (inspired by Lohan’s “The Parent Trap”) have become instant (and repeatable) holiday classics.

In this new movie, Lohan will play a “newly engaged, spoiled hotel heiress” (according to the logline), who gets amnesia after a skiing accident and “finds herself in the care of a handsome, blue-collar lodge owner and his precocious daughter in the days leading up to Christmas.” The rest of the cast has not yet been announced.

If this actually gets made I would watch it! I like Christmas romance movies and Netflix has some decent ones including the ones mentioned in the article like The Knight Before Christmas, The Princess Switch, The Holiday Calendar and Operation Christmas Drop. Holidate, with Emma Roberts, was pretty good and seemed like a film that could get a theater release. I don’t think Lohan’s movie is going to be on that level though. This sounds more like Christmas Inheritance, which was still highly watchable I enjoyed it. This is Lohan though, she’s going to cost twice as much in production because she’s unprofessional and late when she shows up at all. I hope they have good insurance.

It looks like they’re filming now although this could just be a photoshoot.
