Lindsay Lohan, who has largely foregone acting in recent years, will soon star in a yet-to-be-titled Netflix holiday rom-com.
Variety reports that in this new movie, Lohan will play a "newly engaged, spoiled hotel heiress", who gets amnesia after a skiing accident and "finds herself in the care of a handsome, blue-collar lodge owner and his precocious daughter in the days leading up to Christmas." The rest of the cast has not yet been announced.
Lohan skyrocketed to fame as an 11-year-old actor, starring in a 1998 reboot of "The Parent Trap." She followed that with a remake of "Freaky Friday" and "Mean Girls;" both roles cemented her status as an A-list star. After years of being hounded by paparazzi and the tabloids because of personal issues — ones that made her uninsurable for a time because of her chronic absences — Lohan withdrew from acting by degrees, starting in the early 2010s. She eventually moved abroad, living in both Europe and Dubai.
The Netflix movie starts production in November, so it won't be for 2021 holiday viewing — audiences will receive this Yuletide present at a time to be announced later.
Janeen Damian (Hallmark Channel's "A Christmas Waltz") will direct, and it was written by Damian, Michael Damian, Jeff Bonnett and Ron Oliver. Its producers are MPCA's Brad Krevoy and Riviera Films' Michael Damian.
