Herbie the Love Bug may have done some pretty cool stuff, but when you get down to it, he was a junkyard car. So, despite the fact that "Herbie: Fully Loaded" was a remake of a beloved Disney classic, Lindsay Lohan definitely traded up in terms of co-stars when she signed on to Robert Altman's latest movie, "A Prairie Home Companion."
The all-star cast includes Woody Harrelson, Virginia Madsen, John C. Reilly, Maya Rudolph, Lily Tomlin and Lohan's personal favorite, Meryl Streep.
"A Prairie Home Companion," written by Garrison Keillor and based on his radio variety series of the same name, is a fictional film that imagines the show's final broadcast. Holding court are singing cowboys, a country-music siren played by Streep, and her daughter, played by Lohan.
"It is quite incredible to be able to say that I will be working with someone like that," Lohan said of Streep.
"You can only learn from those people and just watch," she continued. "I can't wait to get on set and just watch them and see what they do and how they act."
Tommy Lee Jones will also join the little cast on the "Prairie," according to The Hollywood Reporter. Principal photography began recently in St. Paul, Minnesota. The film is due next year.
