The New York Times just published a report on the disastrous filming of the movie in which Lindsay Lohan plays at the side of porn star James Deen.
According to the detailed report of the colleagues from the New York Times, the filming of “The Canyons” with Lindsay Lohan (“Machete”) define it as a long dark nightmare. Lohan appeared rarely. Director Paul Schrader (“Auto Focus”, “Dominion: Prequel – the Exorcist”, author of “Taxi Driver”), who wanted to bring this film his career back on its feet, be several times been on the verge of a nervous breakdown.

On January 7, 2013, the production company Millennium Films achieves a large movie success of “The Texas Chainsaw 3D” in the United States ($ 20 million revenue alone on the first weekend). The company announced that later this year, the work should begin. Apparently, this announcement, however, was a little too hasty. The owners Carl Mazzocone and Mark Burg will first clarify key data and then will stand before cross.
Perhaps, Avi Lerner, head of Millennium Films, is a little too enthusiastically, as he already announced on Monday that it would definitely give sequels to “The Texas Chainsaw 3D” and you still could begin this year working on it. According to the two producers had nothing concrete in the pipeline. First, one must clarify the creative basic data with the lender Lionsgate.
Man can only expect more of it though, come the sequels (and eventually want Mazzocone Castle money), whether the cameras are already expired this year, you will have to wait, however. First, the internal differences must be solved.
