(NEW YORK) — Lindsay Lohan’s next film is already receiving less-than-glowing reviews.
The Hollywood Reporter says the South by Southwest festival, scheduled to be held in Austin, Texas, this March, has decided not to screen Lindsay’s highly-publicized thriller The Canyons.
A source connected to the festival tells the publication that the movie suffers from “quality issues.” One insider is quoted as saying, “It’s got an ugliness and a deadness to it.”
A producer who worked on The Canyons says the crew has yet to hear back from the festival.
The ongoing Sundance Film Festival in Utah previously rejected the film. There have been reports that Lindsay exhibited poor behavior while working on the project, which features her in the nude.
Lindsay could’ve used some good news. She’s currently embroiled in two legal cases, one on the East Coast and one on the West Coast. KABC-TV has confirmed the speculation that the Mean Girls star has parted ways with her longtime lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, who represented the actress last week in a Los Angeles court in regards to charges that Lindsay lied to police about a car crash.
