Once upon a time, there was Lindsay Lohan, who was poised to become the next big thing in Hollywood. She got her first hit film and turned heads for playing the dual role of playful twins in Disney's 1998 remake of "The Parent Trap". Lohan's star rose fast from then, starring in another successful Disney remake - Freaky Friday - by 2003. It was with 2004's lovingly remembered Mean Girls that Lohan truly emerged as a potential A-lister however, with the teen dramedy careers also the debut of Rachel McAdams and Amanda Seyfried.
Lohan Might Not Be Suitable For The Role
Regrettably, a few years later, Lohan's personal wild life had seemingly become out of control, to the point where it was effecting her professional projections. This incident is of course all too common among actors who at a young age has hit i big, and while some eventually manage to pull their careers out of the brim, not all are sufficiently lucky to do so. While Lohan still acts like the regular teen queen, she's far from the star she once was, guesting mostly on TV shows and in low-budget movies.
Still, even with how long she's been around on the pop-culture stage, Lohan is still only 30, and there's nothing that says she can't still manage to pull off her career's revival. With that said, Lohan recently took to Instagram to make it known that she would like to play Ariel in Disney's imminent live-action remake of The Little Mermaid. She also wants Oscar-winner Bill Condon, who throne the studio's soon to debut live-action of Beauty and the Beast, to direct the film. EW has a screenshot of Lohan's original post, although she has since edited the title to be simply "The Little Mermaid", as seen above.
Lohan Might Not Have The Role Of "The Little Mermaid" But She Could Land "Scary Movie" Sequel
While Lohan wanting the lead role in a live-action Little Mermaid movie isn't an impossible dream - after all, she certainly looks the part in some angles - it's a little bit hard to imagine Disney would want her to lead a blockbuster big-budget live-action adaptation. Lohan hasn't appeared in the film since t2013 Scary Movie 5 after all, and she only put in a small walk-on as herself in that.This isn't Lohan's only recent impulse to try for more mainstream films, as she revealed that she has written a handling script for a potential Mean Girls 2 near the end of 2016. One undertakes somebody might actually end up giving her another chance to shine at some point. Only time will tell who it will be.
