We’re still waiting to find out what comes of Bret Easton Elliscampaign to adapt E.L. James’ Fifty Shades of Grey, but in the meantime another of his projects is coming together with some attention-grabbing casting. Lindsay Lohan has just joined porn star James Deen in The Canyons, a sexual thriller that Taxi Driver writer Paul Schrader  is directing from Ellis’ script.

Between this and her role in Lifetime’s Liz & Dick, it appears that the former Mean Girls star really and truly is getting back to work. Provided she can stay out of jail, anyway. More about The Canyons after the jump.
