[movieperson id="207177"]Lindsay Lohan[/movieperson] is finally getting a movie released. The catch? The film is going straight to basic cable. “Labor Pains,” which Lohan shot last summer, will make its debut on ABC Family in July, according to AccessHollywood.com.
And if you should miss its big TV debut, the film will subsequently be released on DVD in August. The film will apparently get a theatrical release, but only internationally, the source further tells AccessHollywood.com. There is no release date yet.
In the film, Lohan plays a woman who fakes a pregnancy to save herself from getting fired. In order to keep the ruse going, she must fake it for an entire nine months.
It is also being reported that Lohan recently got herself a gig in a yet-untitled romantic comedy alongside Nick Cannon. The film is about a New York fashionista who gets set up on a date with a blind man.
Lohan recently shared her career woes in several interviews. “It’s scary when you realize, ‘Oh my God, I’m not working,’” she told Nylon magazine. “And I have a house to pay for now. … And yes, the Web sites, the gossip pages, and all of that stuff have hurt my career — they’re like the burn books of Hollywood.”
Also in that interview, Lohan said that she had been trying to get on the phone with Seth Rogen for a possible collaboration, a claim that Rogen later denied . “I read that too,” he told MTV News while promoting his new animated movie “Monsters vs. Aliens.” “No one that works for me or with me in any capacity has received any word from anyone that works for Lindsay Lohan. So I don’t know what happened there.”
