Ellis and Paul Schrader's "LA noir micro budget" movie has met its Kickstarter goals, apparently, and so casting can begin in earnest. As expected, given that The Canyons was written for him, porn star James Deen is onboard, but here's a twist: Porsche-crasher Lindsay Lohan will co-star, according to Ellis's Twitter, and filming begins July 9. Hope that timing works out!
