We already stay up for Netflix’s vacation lineup all yr lengthy, however now there’s another excuse: Lindsay Lohan
Sometimes it’s onerous to imagine it’s been 17 years since Mean Girls was launched. Lindsay Lohan was on the absolute top of her fame, coming off her roles in The Parent Trap and Freaky Friday that made her one of many hottest A-listers of the time. But she was additionally sufferer to one thing many younger, feminine stars skilled on the time: Constant hounding and harassment by the media and paparazzi. In the early 2010s, Lohan started to tug again from her appearing profession, transferring to Europe after which to Dubai to reside a extra personal life.
Until now. The star is making her return to appearing, and the cherry on prime of this unimaginable information is that her first movie function in years goes to be in a Netflix vacation rom-com. You know the kind — the tacky, campy, so-bad-it’s-good motion pictures all of us devour all vacation season, like The Christmas Prince, The Knight Before Christmas (a private favourite of mine), and The Princess Switch, which was based mostly on The Parent Trap. Could there be a extra excellent approach for Lohan to make her triumphant return to the display screen? I feel not.
The information was first introduced by Variety, and we don’t have very many particulars but. The film doesn’t have a title, however we all know that Lohan will play a “newly engaged, spoiled hotel heiress” (in response to the logline), who will get amnesia after a snowboarding 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 remainder of the solid has not been introduced, however actually, does it even matter? That premise appears like precisely what all of us need in a Netflix vacation film, and we’re already on board. The undeniable fact that Lohan is the star is simply *chef’s kiss.*
Apparently, Lohan has been planning her return to appearing for some time. On CNN’s New Year’s Eve particular in 2019, she advised host Anderson Cooper that she wished to “come back to America and start filming again… taking back the life that I worked so hard for, and sharing it with my family and you guys.” Of course, then the coronavirus pandemic shut down the world, and doubtless delayed her plans a bit bit.
Now for the dangerous information: Lohan’s movie begins manufacturing in November, which implies it received’t be completed for vacation viewing this yr. Can we wait till 2022 for this? Guess we’re simply going to need to.
