Lindsay Lohan delighted as 'The Canyons' wins a reprieve

WENN

Lindsay Lohan expressed joy after her latest movie, "The Canyons," finally landed a cinema distribution deal amid fears the film was heading straight to DVD.

Bing: More on 'The Canyons'

The erotic thriller, written by 'American Psycho' author Bret Easton Ellis, was on the verge of becoming a major flop when it was denied screening slots at a number of film festivals last year, with organizers of Texas' South by Southwest (SXSW) rejecting it over "quality issues."

However, executives at IFC Films have now acquired the North American rights to the movie and are making plans to release it in cinemas this summer, prompting a delighted response from Lohan.

In a post on Twitter, she writes, "Yay! For The Canyons and thank you to IFC!!!!"

"Finally the movie will be able to be seen, and viewers can judge for themselves rather than relying on the undeservedly snarky press 'The Canyons' has received so far," Ellis said in a statement. 'The Canyons,' regardless of what you think of it, is an example of the next step in what will now be the future of post-theatrical feature-length content."

Maybe now lindsey lohan can pay her taxes!   If she were a regular person, her wages would be garnished by the IRS.  She is still living high on the hog and not paying any of her bills or other obligations.
