Producer of ‘LiLo’ movie backpedals after her mum’s legal action threat
Washington: The writer/producer of ‘Dogs in Pocketbooks’ says that reports suggesting that the movie -- about a starlet addicted to drugs and alcohol who goes in and out of rehab -- is based on Lindsay Lindsay are "totally blown out of proportion."
Earlier, screenwriter Charles Casillo said that his self-described ‘screwball comedy’ is based on the ‘Mean Girls’ star, reports TMZ.com.
Casillo told Page 6 a few days ago: "[The movie] is in no way mean-spirited towards Lindsay. It’s the kind of thing she has spoofed about herself in the past. It’s more of a satire about the crazy people around her..."
But Dina Lohan isn’t pleased with the film adaptation, and said she’s considering taking legal action.
Now Casillo has said that his character is a composite of many young starlets, including Lindsay, Paris Hilton and Britney Spears mixed with some icons like Marilyn Monroe and Jean Harlow.
