LiLo and Paul Schrader

I never thought I’d see these two working together, but it looks like Lindsay Lohan stars in the new film directed by Paul Schrader (writer of Taxi Driver and other classics).
In this interview in Film Comment, Schrader seems more than a little ambivalent about having LiLo in his film.
…Lindsay is a complicated subject.
I think the Adderall, more than anything else, is the problem. It’s a very fashionable drug in young Hollywood. It’s supposedly for attention deficit disorder. And it can be. But it is now a drug that is more abused than used. They use it for weight loss. They use it for energy. It’s basically a kind of speed. I never quite understood it. At 4 or 5 in the morning, people were trying to get out of her room. And she didn’t want them to leave. She didn’t want to be alone. I thought: “How do you do that without cocaine?” She’s not doing cocaine, I can tell. I know she’s not. I said I don’t know how she does it. Now I know [chuckles].
Seems like Schrader would be more comfortable if it was cocaine. Also starring James Deen (Batman XXX: a Porn Parody) The Canyons is slotted for an August 9th release.
