Lindsay Lohan Announces New Film at Sundance

With a camera crew from Oprah Winfrey’s OWN recording her every move for a new reality series, a smiling and upbeat Lindsay Lohan announced her intention to produce and star in the new indie feature Inconceivable. "It's a nice change to be back among people that are in the industry that I've been in since I was a kid," Lohan said in a tightly controlled news conference. 

Lohan chose to go outside the norm and make the announcement for the upcoming film at a presser during the festival, because it was “a special place” to do so, said producer and financier Randall Emmett. "I've never had the honor of coming here before ... to bring something to the table, which is starting fresh for me," Lohan said. "And I'm filming my Oprah docu-series right now, so I get to [reveal] that to the people who have been watching that as well.”

Of course, Lohan is once again trying to overcome her ongoing battles with substance abuse and legal issues. Just last year, she went to rehab for what seemed to be the umpteenth time following her arrest and sentence of probation for lying to police about smashing her Porsche into a truck in 2012. At the time, she was already on probation for her infamous necklace theft in 2011. She completed 90 days of rehab in the summer of 2013 and once again finds herself trying to revamp her career.

"It's therapeutic for me to throw myself into something that really excites me and something that I love to do so much," she said. "There's nothing better than having seen all of your ideas and thoughts that you've been thinking about to come to fruition and to share that with people. I think that's why I've always loved making movies so much. So it's nice to be able to have another position in the film rather than just showing up and being on the set."
