Porn Star James Deen & Lindsay Lohan to Star in New Bret Easton Ellis Film

Bret Easton Ellis is making the dreams of straight girls the world over come true by putting porn star James Deen on the big screen. Ellis tweeted the news that both Deen and Lindsay Lohan were both set to star in his upcoming flick, The Canyons, an erotic thriller about 20-somethings navigating life in Los Angeles.

The film will be directed by Paul Schrader and produced by former Lionsgate producer Braxton Pope. In an effort to retain creative control the trio are partially funding the film themselves, with the rest coming from a highly successful Kickstarter campaign that raised almost $160k. No doubt some of that dough came from Deen fans eager to see their porno heartthrob make his mainstream film debut.
