The Canyons

In a provocative collaboration, writer Bret Easton Ellis and Taxi Driver director Paul Schrader pulled in controversial actress Lindsay Lohan and porn star James Deen for a sultry, sexy film called The Canyons. Early hype for the film included stranger teaser trailers themed around Los Angeles, infused with grindhouse traits, thrown back to the 1950s and another one that went even more retro with a 1930s vibe. Now an official trailer has arrived to give us a better idea of this film's style and story which follows the haphazard youth, glamor and sex of their lives and how it will eventually unravel the sanity. Watch below!

Here's the full theatrical trailer for Paul Schrader's The Canyons, originally from Apple:

It’s not The Hills, it's The Canyons. The film is a contemporary L.A. noir from director Paul Schrader (Taxi Driver), writer Bret Easton Ellis (The Informers, and novels for American Psycho and The Rules of Attraction), about the dangers of sexual obsession and ambition, both personally and professionally, among a group of young people in their 20′s and how one chance meeting connected to the past unravels all of their lives, resulting in deceit, paranoia, cruel mind games and ultimately violence. Lindsay Lohan and porn star James Deen star in the film which IFC Films releases in NYC and on VOD this summer on August 2nd.

    The first sentence of this post makes it seem like you're saying that Paul Schrader directed Taxi Driver.

    Linday Lohan is somehow hotter, maybe it's cause she's all damaged.
  • joe
    On the subject of writing Taxi Driver. The magic with that movie wasn't the script... it was Scorsese and De Niro.
