After being rejected by numerous film festivals, “The Canyons,” with Lindsay Lohan and adult film star James Deen, will hit theaters this summer.
IFC Films has acquired the Paul Schrader-directed movie, which will also be released on digital and on-demand platforms.
“I am delighted our film has found an enthusiastic home at IFC. We envisioned ‘The Canyons’ as a multi-platform release from the beginning and no company knows that world better than IFC,” the director said in a statement.
As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, despite rumors of Lindsay being a difficult to work with, her porn star co-star praised the headline-making actress.
“Working with her was awesome,” James said of Lindsay in August 2012. “She’s super professional. Super great. She’s a fantastic actress … I feel like I learned a lot from her.”
He said at the time that working with the “Liz & Dick” star brought out “the best” in his acting abilities.
