Trailer: Lindsay Lohan in 'The Canyons'

I'd say this formula should put some people in the seats.

Between writer Bret Easton Ellis ("American Psycho"), director Paul Schrader ("Auto Focus," "American Gigolo") and, oh yeah, star Lindsay Lohan, the upcoming film "The Canyons" has salaciousness written all over it.

P.S. The movie co-stars porn star James Deen. So yeah.

The just-released trailer only accentuates the movie's juiciness, embracing a level of camp that may or may not be a defense mechanism--if you don't take material seriously, it's easier to avoid people mocking your attempt at achieving something legitimate.

I have no idea what to expect from the movie, which also co-stars filmmaker Gus Van Sant, but it would be great if it showcased Lohan's once-promising acting abilities and proved a real step in her professional (and by extension personal) recovery. Either way, it wil have people talking.
