Lindsay Lohan’s Hollywood comeback (part 1,294) began about a year ago when Netflix gave her a Christmas movie to star in. There are likely many who figured Lindsay’s time with Netflix would end with Netflix scrapping that Christmas movie and demanding Lindsay return the 10lb bag of fake snow she stole from the set. But filming went off without a hitch and Falling for Christmas will drop on Netflix this holiday season. Netflix must have been so impressed with Lindsay’s performance, that they’ve gone ahead and given her two more films to make.
Honestly, if you went back in time to February 2020 and told me that we’d soon be living through a years-long global health pandemic and Lindsay Lohan’s career would be thriving, I’d respond, “Hahaha yeah sure, good one. Let me go alert her accountant right now.” But that’s what’s happening. Deadline is reporting that LiLo will star in at least two more Netflix movies.
“Lohan’s deal comes following her attachment to Falling for Christmas, a holiday rom-com that is slated to debut on Netflix later this year. In it, she plays a newly engaged, spoiled hotel heiress who gets into a skiing accident, suffers from total amnesia and finds herself in the care of a handsome, blue-collar lodge owner (Chord Overstreet) and his precocious daughter in the days leading up to Christmas.
We’re so happy with our collaboration with Lindsay to date, and we’re thrilled to continue our partnership with her,” said Netflix’s Director of Independent Film, Christina Rogers. “We look forward to bringing more of her films to our members around the world.”
Lindsay also confirmed the news herself on Instagram, and clearly, she’s excited.
Two more movies? Incredible! Dina Lohan, you can finally afford a prepaid Visa card to register for an Uber account!!
Since Lindsay’s first movie with Netflix is a fluffy Christmas rom-com, I’m guessing they will probably be following the same formula. Or who knows? Netflix isn’t just making trash to fall asleep on the couch to. Maybe Lindsay will find herself starring in another one of Netflix’s Oscar-nominated prestige pieces. Okay, whoever goes back in time to February 2020 probably shouldn’t bring that up, because I’ll likely hit my head on something hard when I faint from shock.
