'The Canyons' with Lindsay Lohan Gets a Bizarre Grindhouse Teaser
After American Psycho writer Bret Easton Ellis and Taxi Driver writer Paul Schrader Kickstarted the budget for their indie The Canyons, a grungy noir starring porn star James Deen and tabloid regular Lindsay Lohan, and the film got a melodic L.A.-centric teaser trailer, we really weren't sure what to expect. But this new grindhouse-style trailer (via The Playlist) is surprising. Is this what the final film will actually look like on the big screen, or did Schrader and Ellis just have some fun in the edit bay and give us something super stylized here? Either way, this film will certainly be something to behold. Watch it below!
Here's the first teaser trailer for Paul Schrader's The Canyons via The Playlist:
The Canyons follows a small group of twenty-somethings as they explore the seedy underbelly of Hollywood while trying to make it in the biz. It's being billed as an L.A. noir that has both crime and redemption elements, but most of the plot details are still being kept under wraps. So far the movie features adult film star James Deen and Lindsay Lohan, with the filmmakers planning a Netflix & VOD style release, so we might not hear much more about the project. Taxi Driver writer Paul Schrader is directing the film from a script by Bret Easton Ellis (American Psycho), and we'll keep you posted with release date information.
