Perhaps Lindsay Lohan’s upcoming prison sentence will be a bit easier for her to endure knowing she’ll have work waiting for her upon her release. The troubled pop star has a (very!) enthusiastic supporter in Inferno director Matthew Wilder, who promised that production will resume on the Linda Lovelace biopic once LiLo serves her time.
“This is a sad chapter in the ongoing tragicomic circus between the tabloid media and the ‘justice’ system,” Wilder wrote in a statement. “An outrageously outsized sentence garners attention for all the players involved, but brings only sadness to the poor soul who has to serve it. I am 100% behind Lindsay and can say the same for everyone involved in the production of Inferno: A Linda Lovelace Story. Indeed, we are proud to have this remarkable artist work on our film.”
And Wilder didn’t stop there. He also delivered a message to Lohan haters, a group he predicts will face the karmic equivalent of Regina George getting hit by a bus.
“And as for the haters relishing this moment, I can only quote Jesus in The Last Temptation of Christ: ‘And those who are laughing now … will be crying after.’”
