Lindsay Lohan playing the victim? Celebrity photographer Tyler Shields is hoping to make it happen.
Shields has confirmed to CNN that he’s directing a film about Charles Manson called “Eyes of a Dreamer,” in which he’ll star as the murderer himself.
According to Shields, he’s currently “in talks” with Lohan to play the role of Sharon Tate. Although no deal has been made, Shields added that he thinks Lohan is the right actress for the job, telling CNN that "she would be great" in the role.
He explained to Entertainment Weekly that her very public ups and downs are part of the appeal. "Sharon Tate was a movie star,” he told EW. “So I want [an actress who] you already have a backstory with. People have a backstory with someone like Lindsay. And I think it’s very relatable.”
Well, she did say she was ready to get back to work again, but no word yet if Lohan will take the job.
