Calling all those who are nostalgic for the 00s (so, err, everyone then?) – Mean Girls and The Parent Trap star Lindsay Lohan is set to make a return to acting! Streaming giant Netflix have announced that she'll be taking the lead role in a new Christmas movie, in which she plays a wealthy heiress who wakes up following a tragic skiing accident seemingly unable to remember anything about her life.
Following the reveal of this major news, fans are already sharing their excitement and hopes for the project to be Lindsay's big comeback to movie acting - it's been a few years since she starred in anything quite on the same level as Mean Girls, Freaky Friday or any of her other classics.
In full, the description of the new film (which doesn't yet have a name or release date) on IMDB is: "A newly engaged hotel heiress gets into an accident and, suffering from amnesia, finds herself in the care of a handsome lodge owner and his precocious daughter in the days leading up to Christmas."
Lined up to direct the project is Janeen Damian, who has a plethora of writing credits under her belt, a notable chunk of which are also festive films (including The Christmas Waltz which starred Lindsay's fellow Mean Girls alumni, Lacey Chabert AKA Gretchen Wieners).
Reacting to the news on social media, one fan said, ""LINDSAY LOHAN RETURNS??? AND IN A ROM-COM?? We won". Another added, "Let the records show that I will FOREVER support/stan/simp Lindsay Lohan!"
A further Twitter user wrote, "She is such a good actress, can't wait".
Others commented that the plot sounds just a tad similar to Overboard, the 2018 remake of which (the original debuted in 1987) starred Anna Faris as a mother who gets amnesia after being pushed off a fancy yacht that she's working on. "Yet another Overboard? Bring it on. Actually it's a skiing accident, not maritime one," commented one person.
Another chimed in with, "So, basically, OVERBOARD, but on skis?"
Hands up who else is keen to at least giving Lindsay's new film a go? We'll be keeping our eyes peeled for new information.
