(NEW YORK) -- A movie based on the troubled life of actress Lindsay Lohan is being developed. The New York Post reports 26-year-old model and heiress Lydia Hearst Shaw has been cast in the lead role as a comic character based on the troubled Mean Girls star. Screenwriter Charles Casillo tells the newspaper, “Lydia will play a bratty movie goddess in and out of rehab, in trouble with the law, and hounded by greedy agents, predatory paparazzi, off-the-wall stalkers and crazed media.”
Casillo says the movie, entitled, Dogs in Pocketbooks, “is in no way mean-spirited towards Lindsay.” Casilo adds, “It’s the kind of thing [Lindsay] has spoofed about herself in the past. It’s more of a satire about the crazy people around her and the situations they generate.”
Dynasty actress Joan Collins has been cast in the film as a high-powered agent. Filming begins in New York and L.A. in February.
