MTV revealed in an interview with Lindsay Lohan that the actress and tabloid fixtureís filmic direction has made a 180-degree turn from such lighthearted Disney fare as HERBIE FULLY LOADED and FREAKY FRIDAY, with her attachment to director Chris (THE LOST) Siverstonís latest fright flick I KNOW WHO KILLED ME. ďI wanted to challenge myself,Ē Lohan tells the site. ďI wanted to do something different, and itís a really scary read. Itís in the vein of SEVEN and SILENCE OF THE LAMBS.Ē
With principal photography scheduled to commence this December in Los Angeles and San Luis Obispo, CA, I KNOW WHO KILLED ME was penned by Jeff Hammond and revolves around Aubrey (Lohan), the daughter of an affluent family who is abducted by a serial killer. While she manages to escape (although not before the loss of her hand and leg), the girlís plight deepens once she regains consciousness in a hospital and claims that she is Dakota, Aubreyís doppelganger, and that she must save Aubrey (who is still in the clutches of her abductor) before it is too late. Says the 20-year-old actress of the challenges of her dual role, ďItís the first thriller I have ever been attached to in my life [and] I didnít think I could do it, but thatís why I am.Ē Stay tuned to Fango for updates.
