Lindsay Lohan To Be In Werewolf Thriller Movie

Here’s a surprise in this week’s Lindsay Lohan news: Lohan is going to be appearing in an actual movie for the first time in six years. I know, shocking, isn’t it? And it’s a werewolf movie…those are still a thing right? Here’s the trailer for Among the Shadows, her newest movie:

Before you get too excited, bear in mind that this movie won’t actually be in theaters, but it’ll be available on demand in March. Not the same level of momentum, but hey, it’s better than direct to DVD.

I’m still a little skeptical about this film.  First of all, the trailer looks a little like a slapped together fan trailer. Secondly, is that unfortunately, Lohan hasn’t brought much in the way of renown to any picture she’s done in recent years. Here’s the summary of the movie so you can see what we’re dealing with here:

“Kristy Wolfe (Charlotte Beckett) is a Brussels private eye descended from werewolves who must go to work when her uncle Harry Goldtsone is murdered in a politically-motivated attack. Patricia Sherman (Lindsay Lohan), the wife of European Federation President Richard Sherman, hires Wolfe to investigate Goldstone’s killing, as he was her husband’s campaign manager. Wolfe finds bodies falling all over city and must use her innate instincts to unravel the case and stay alive long enough unmask the conspiracy.”

I did check around to see if this movie stemmed from any other source material like a novel or book series, or hell, even a video game. No dice.

And I’m already suspicious of a werewolf movie whose lead character has the last name of “Wolfe.” If that isn’t the most blatant wink to the audience, I don’t know what is. No, scratch that, this isn’t a wink, this is a punch in the face.

Also, based on the summary, it seems like the investigator (Charlotte Beckett) is supposed to be the main character. But when you look at the IMDB page, it’s Lohan’s face and name splashed over the poster. It looks like Charlotte Beckett is getting the short shrift here. And now I think that most of the budget went towards securing Lindsay Lohan for the movie and keeping her appeased on set just to gain an audience that they might not have gotten without Lohan’s notoriety attached.
