Lindsay Lohan 'in talks' to play Sharon Tate

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.

    No! First of she looks nothing like her, she can't act and doesn't have the same persona. I would like to see KEIRA KNIGHTLY! I love her and they look alike. She can't get her down and she will work hard to get it right. Lindsy lohan needs some help not a role for a movie.

    How about Minka Kelly or the actress from Bridesmaids that was the rich friend that had the extravigant wedding shower, I'm not sure what her name is but with blond hair she looks alot like Sharon I think. I sure hope the movie tells and shows thelife of Sharon more than focussing on the tragic end to her life and the horrible association to a monster that she doesn't diserve, ohhh but I forgot its hollywood

    Hi Kathleen. It was nice to see another genuine Sharon fan post on this board and talk about her as a real human being! I was too young to remember this, but read the book Helter Skelter in 1979 when I was about 13. I was living in California at the time too, & I remember being scared at night, making sure doors & windows were locked, because I knew Charlie still had active followers who were free! One thing that always stuck w/me though was Sharon's story. I think because she was pregnant when she died I had such compassion & empathy for her. My mother was pregnant when I read the book. Like you said above, I've had those same thoughts about it too. It's haunting and unforgettable once you hear about it. Since then I've become interested in her life & career. With the internet,and through her biography Greg King wrote, I've gotten to learn a lot about her and everything I've learned has endeared her to me even more. Makes it more tragic & SENSELESS!

    Jennifer North I agree with you and you are very right.. I actually saw Eye of The Devil.. Im a huge fan of Deborah Kerr also and I remember reading about how sweet she was to Sharon on that set and David Niven became like a father figure to her..She is missed by all and her story will never die.. Poor thing, how terrified she must have been that moment.. If I could go back in time, I would stop this moment.. its been with me since I was a kid and I have never ever forgotten the events or Sharons beautiful self..

    As a Sharon Tate fan I forgot to say who I think could play Sharon. A younger Ashley Judd would have been PERFECT in the role. She has Sharon's look as far as I'm concerned. I think she is one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood today. Unfortunately since Sharon died at age 26 I think it would be a stretch for Ashley to play her today. Another actress I believe could pull it off, once again maybe too old now though, is Heather Graham.

    To the person who stated VALLEY OF THE DOLLS was Sharon's FIRST & only movie, and that she got it because her husband was Roman Polanski - YOU ARE CLUELESS! Read her biography, do a little research on her before you post something so misinformed! Sharon's first movie was EYE OF THE DEVEL w/David Niven & Deborah Kerr, which was filmed in 1965 and released in 1967. Her second movie was THE FEARLESS VAMPIRE KILLERS which is a funny, Mel Brooksish satire about vampires. Roman Polanski directed the film and she WASN'T HIS FIRST CHOICE for the part, he wanted Jill St. John. He settled for her because her agent pushed her on him, & he found she looked good in the wig, They fell in love on the set & she left Jay Sebring for him. Next she did a Tony Curtis movie called DON'T MAKE WAVES, another funny beach movie that isn't bad for what it is. In 1967 she finally got a big break w/a co-starring role in VALLEY OF THE DOLLS. Roman Polanski had nothing to do with it and they weren't even married yet while she filmed. The following year she was in THE WRECKING CREW w/Dean Martin which was a series of movies he did sort of James Bond satire, comedy again. Her last part was filmed during the early part of her pregnancy in Spring 1969 in Italy called 12+1 (or the THIRTEEN CHAIRS as it came to be known after her death). It was released the year after her death. Another comic type of movie. She was good in comedies, everyone who worked w/her had nothing but great things to say about her work ethic and her timing/acting. I own all of her movies and her comedies are her best work. It is said she was going to pursue more of that type of film work. YOU STAND CORRECTED!

    I remember the headlines when the murders occured.. I am 55 yrs old and from some of the other posts someone is trying to say Manson never murdered anyone.. oh yes he did.. go read your facts and Vincent Bugliosi will argue with any moron who would defend a piece of crap like Manson.. all of them are murderers and I am so glad Atkins died of cancer.. too easy for her I say..would have been better to have suffered more.. the ones who are in jail will remain there.. but one more crime would add insult to injury and that would be to have L.Lohan portray what was all beauty and innocence and what would have become one of the biggest stars of her day had she been allowed to live.. this story is the saddest one I ever have known, and every time I see Sharons name I re-live the horror of shock of what happened that night at 500 Ceilo Dr.. they actually tore down the house it happened at.. Lindsay Lohan my a-s.. what a joke!

    For years I have adored Sharon Tate, from the Valley of the Dolls and even when she was on The Beverly Hillbillies and I was just a kid I remember her rare beauty.. to have this loser actress portray one of the most tragic events of our country, the manson killings, is even more tragic.. How dare any Hollywood producer choose LL to represent this rare beautys life and death.. its a travesty.. she is lacking integrity in her life, breaks all rules and considers herself bigger than life... as much as I looove the idea of this film being made and celebrate Sharons beautiful memory the choice of actrress has me in such an outrage I could just type expletives in triplicate right now!!!!

    Wow Lindsey Lohan looks nothing...I repeat Sharon Tate. Wow the fact that she's even being considered to play a woman who was arguably one of the most beautiful Hollywood starlets since Grace Kelly is sickening. Plus her death was so tragic I think anyone putting together a film about her should at least have the respect to have an unknown or at least respected/classy actress play her life.

(Brings a tear to my tea party eyes.) Best part is, they won't have to use any makeup at all to make LL look ancient. Seriously, the girl looks like 3 miles of bad road.

      When the Family killed Shorty Shea, Manson was the first to stab him with his sword – in the heart. I'd call that murder. He also shot Bernard Crowe in the chest intending to kill him and it was only Crowe playing dead that saved him. But this leads to the question – Susan Atkins prevented Sharon Tate's escape from the house and later held Tate down so Charles Watson could kill her. Is she not a murderer because she didn't actually stab her? Did all of those other actions not aid in Tate's death? Susan Atkins is a murderer. Charles Manson is a murderer.

      Ron, you need to do more research before you post. In almost every state, if you ACCOMPANY a felony commission where an innocent person is murdered, you are considered guilty of murder in the eyes of the law. What sometimes happens is that district attorneys "play" perps against each other, offering a "lighter" sentence to the first person who provides good evidence and who testifies against the other(s).

      Sometimes the person who actually pulled the trigger ends up getting a slightly lighter sentence than the accomplices. But that's rare. In almost all cases, they end up with a similar sentence, 20 years to life. So it can be a cr*p shoot. But once you get involved with the law at that level, you can be guaranteed a very long sentence, whether you pulled the trigger or not. In the eyes of the law, you are equally guilty.

      Please research and read before you post. It makes your posts much more credible.

      Respectfully, sanjosemike

      If you'd do some actual research into Charles Manson and his clan you'd find Manson did indeed commit murder himself. The writer isn't the idiot, you are.

    I read the story of the Manson murders written by the prosecutor and I always wanted to see Hollywood do a good recreation of the story, but every Manson movie that comes out (and theres been a lot) doesn't seem to do the real story justice. Maybe this one will but I have to say I'd cast Lohan as one of Manson's female proteges and not Sharon Tate.

    This is a perfect example of Hollywood gone stupid. Everyone who knows who Sharon Tate was, also knows she was murdered by the Manson Family while she was pregnant. Her career as an actress was very limited., so the ending of this movie is very predictable. If that's the best they can up with as writers, Hollywood is in serious trouble. Hiring Lohan is a publicity ploy to attract people who like to watch train wrecks and not care about the lack of a serious plot in a movie. Lohan is a washed up former actress and nothing more . They may as well get Paris Hilton, Brittany Spears, and Charlie Sheen to play the Mansons for more train wrecks.Maybe they could have the child rapist Roman Polanski direct the movie for added controversy ? This movie will be in poor taste, and i doubt the sister of Sharon Tate will give her blessings.

    Regardless of Lindsey's "backstory", it's still bad casting. She's just all wrong for the part and wouldn't be believable. (btw-Keira Knightley and Gwyneth Paltrow are too skeletal-Sharon Tate was slender, but still womanly). Sounds like Shields is just trying to grab his 15 minutes of fame. Even if he had a snowball's chance in hell of ever making a movie (doubtful), it'd probably come to nothing with Lindsey anyway. Remember her being all set to play Linda Lovelace?

    I don't know. Sharon was so much more down to earth, mature and had her priorities straight. She'd gotten so much out of her system; youth and mistakes wise. She put others first. Especially her loved ones. Those are qualities I don't know if Lindsey is capable of "faking" and appearing realistic first of all and secondly since she does not have those qualities yet I don't know if she could put herself into Sharon's shoes. And it seems to me you have to be able to do that to portray another person. Especially the victim of violence.

      It means you don't have any credibility to make such a statement...the cops only thought it was a drug deal gone bad because if the massive carnage and OBVIOUS HATRED AND ANGER involved in the brutality of the murders.

      Next..."not" is not spelled wiht an "e" tacked on the end.

      Next...who in this world are you mr "JIM" to able to judge the person that Sharron Tate was exactly?

      Next...I can guarentee you this much...

    For the past 4 or 5 years I have been scratching my head on why and how people and the media believe this girl is an A list actor. I have no comments about her character, I had a ton fun myself when I was younger, however I never got caught like this girl does. So back to her being this great fallen actress, where does it come from? Honestly, I am a pretty big movie buff and I can count on 1 hand what I remember seeing her in. Lets see- Parent Trap, Freaky Friday, Herby, some scary movie forgot name, some movie with Jane Fonda forgot name? Huuuggghh, what else,I probably am forgetting like 2, but I just do not know. If this girl is some great hollywood actress, then I am at least making a mark in the B movie world with out ever stepping foot in front of a camera, other then my boyfriends cam and Iphone.

    Lindsay Lohan is a very good actress, messed up and always in trouble..yes quite true, but a very good actress none the less. I think she would do well in the role, she does not have to be an exact replica of Sharon Tate. It would do her good to sink her teeth into a good role and concentrate on that, rather than trying to avoid snooping, obtrusive, no manners pop-o-ROT-z. They surely make people lives miserable, and can be so cruel. Lindsay is no worse than a lot of young people that have done stupid things or screwed up one way or another. Because she is famous and her face and story sell papers they hound her trying to find an angle to a negative story that the greedy and ignorant are all too happy to buy.

    As I read some of these post, the first thing that comes to mind is how narrow minded some are. Let's say that you were in a position that the media would wave all of your dirty laundry under the nose of John Q. Public? Now, don't pretend that you have none, because we all do. We all make bad decisions.

    Your next instinct is going to be to compare your dirty laundry with that of Lindsay. "I've never stole a neckless. I've never done cocaine. I've never got an OWI." But what have you done? And let us not seperate what we've done and been caught at and not been caught at. A dirty deed is a dirty deed.

    I use to do the same thing. Judge. But fortunately, someone taught me to turn that finger towards myself, the only place it can do any good. It's easy talking about someone else, but give yourself a try. I can assure you, it's not easy. But anything worth doing or having never is easy.

    The best man I personally know is an addict. Before his sickness took hold, he helped more people than you and I could ever dream about. Providing Christmas for needy famlies. Spending time at the homeless shelter, helping with what was needed. His fridge was covered with pics of children that he sponsored over-seas. He was a good man.

    I ask all of you. Instead of doing the easy thing, do the right thing.

      My dirty laundry? I was an addict. I've stolen food because I couldn't afford it. I've judged books by their covers.


      Addiction is not an "illness". It's a chemical dependancy that can only be formed by willingly taking the substance without addiction forcing you to in the first place. I hold no illusions, I don't seek pity for what I had done to myself, but I will also not give pity to those who also do it to themselves.

      Yes, everybody makes mistakes, but that doesn't mean it's not your fault when you also make a mistake. It seems for everybody but these celebs, when we make mistakes there's these things called.. um... let me remember...CONSEQUENCES.

      On top of all that, it has NEVER been a secret that as soon as you become well known in her CHOSEN industry, people watch your every move. You cannot seriously step into the spotlight, and then expect people to look away when something you don't want them to see shows up. She CHOSE a non-private lifestyle. Not our problem, hers.

      I'm sorry, but I don't think it's the duty of america to point, persecute and bad mouth someone they've never even met. Folks, hate someone all you want due to how the media portrays them, I just don't see how you could consider yourself any better than the person you speak of.

      Addicts are easy targets. Society think's of them as worthless criminals, not caring about anyone but themselves. One thing I've learned in my life is that pointing my finger at others only serves one purpose, and that is to get the attention off of my own ill-deeds.

      Folks, regardless of what Lindsay has done, Charlie, Mel, take your pick, it is not our burden. I think it's safe to say that we have created our own burdens as a result from our own ill-deeds.

      @sad society: Yes, I "claim" to be recovered. I went through a 4 year stretch of time during which EVERY DAY I went to the bar after work, had anywhere between 1-3 pitchers of beer and 3-8 shots (depending on how long I had until bar close, usually around 2 hours. At close, I would buy a case of beer to bring home, which I would finish roughly 3/4 of before bed, and finish when I woke up.

      Maybe where we differ is that I didn't nee a "program" to tell me that what I was doing was self destructive and stupid. I didn't need AA's shallow claims that only "god" could save me. I went through my own rendition of hell quitting cold turkey. I hallucinated, had a day that I didn't even have enough motor function to move out of my bed (during which I repeatedly soiled myself due to my inability to move) and genuinely thought I was dying. That was 5 years ago, and I haven't had a single compulsion to drink since then. Yeah.. I'd say I'm recovered.

I wanted to be sober. I wanted to be happy. I knew in my heart that I had a malady that was stronger than me. I know it needed treatment.

      But dude, if you're turly happy, I'm happy for you. I truly mean that. When I got treatment, I learned to be compassionate to those that are less fortunate. Yes, this girl makes her own choices, but I know and you know that she is miserable insdide. Now, until she holds a gun to my head, I will reserve my opinion. Despite her money, she lives in hell and I'm sure not going to add to the suffering of anybody by telling them something they already know. I don't care what she's got away with. Peace.

      voicing outrage is healthy and necessary for her and the public for a court system that allows itself to be influenced heavily my fame and dollars

She's a girl who has no self control and has destroyed her own life, at a very young age, no less. There's not a whole lot to be jealous of.

She needs to be made into an example that regardless of who you are, you have to face the music and your actions will cause you not to get something. We try and teach these things to our kids that negative actions will prevent you from getting rewarded, so why reward her with a role in a movie – that's nothing but a reward

      Lest we forget, Sharon Tate was (at the time of her death) with Roman Polanski (with his child).
      I am definately of the mind that people are guilty just by their associations and any woman who
      would make time with the likes of Roman Polanski is not what I would call sweet or nice.
      Besides that, she was an actress, that is enough to be considered harshly instead of favorably

      While I wish Lindsay Lohan well, she is wrong for this part. If you want an actress who resembles Sharon Tate then Google a picture of Keira Knightley with blonde hair. Plus, Keira has the natural classiness that Sharon Tate had.

      Maybe they'll pull a Jason Lee and forget to use a fake prop for the knife.

      You must be young, because to think Lohan looks like Sharon Tate is ridiculous. First, Sharon Tate was about 5" inches taller than Lohan and a true beauty. She had the most amazing eyes that could look through you. Lohan is/was never beautiful, cute is all you could say about her. Sharon was not a boozer or user like Lohan and her face didn't have that puffy, dazed look that drug addicts have. Sharon Tate was not an exceptional actor, but she had such presence. Lohan is forgettable on very count. Actually, there is no one today who is as beautiful as Sharon was then. They should give this up, it's got such terrible karma attached to it, the idea of making money off it is repulsive.

      She needs to run off with Charlie Sheen and never return!

      I'm with lolarites on this one. I'll be honest I didn't know who Sharon Tate was - this all happened before I was born. But after reading up on her story just now and seeing a few pictures... I can tell you that Lindsay Lohan has lightyears of catching up to do with that regard. Poor choice. Indeed they are only choosing her because of her name.

      No way does Lohan look like Sharon (she only wishes she does) and she shouldn't be trying to hook her star on the back of this tragedy. Sharon and her baby don't deserve this and it is in poor taste.

      Anyone (even Meryl Streep) but certainly not sleaze-queen Lindsey Lowdown! Hollywood always searches for the lowest common denominator (and what's lower and more common than one of the Lohan's?). Certainly we don't need a movie about such a lovely person and the tragedy that befell her, her friends and husband Roman. Let's all vote for Lindsey Loser as Linda Lovelace–a role she was born to play (in real life too).

      I seriously don't see even a slight resemblance.

      Lohan in a serious movie? NO. Not by a long shot. She needs a good swift kick in the pants first, and then do some VERY serious growing up, accompanied by inpatient therapy. She's extremely immature.
