Los Angeles: Renowned author Stephen King has recommended troubled starlet Lindsay Lohan`s name for the lead in a big screen adaptation of his novel `Carrie`.
The 63-year-old author, who specialises in horror and thriller novels, wants to see the 24-year-old play Carrie White in the remake of the hit 1976 film, reported TMZ online.
"I`ve heard rumblings about a Carrie remake. Lindsay Lohan as Carrie White. It would certainly be fun to cast," said King.
Reacting to the news, sources close to the troubled actress said that Lohan would not hesitate to play the role and is "stoked" about King`s recommendation.
The Hollywood`s hellraiser, who claims to be a big fan of the famous writer, also wants to grab a role in the upcoming adaption of his other famous book, `The Dark Tower`.
`Carrie` revolves around a mousy and abused girl, who with telekinetic powers gets pushed too far on one special night and the movie received two Oscar nominations.
