LiLo's 'The Canyons' not to be screened at Sundance Film Festival

London, Jan 20 (ANI): Paul Schrader, the director of Lindsay Lohan's new movie 'The Canyons', is rethinking the film's release after Sundance Film Festival bosses opted not to feature it during their 10-day independent cinema event.

Schrader insists it will be months before he'll let critics and film fans see the movie, which co-stars Lohan and adult actor James Deen, because he fears the project will be unfairly savaged because of the embattled 'Mean Girls' star's involvement, the Daily Express reported.

"The intense reactions to (Lohan's 2012 TV movie) Liz and Dick and the Times Mag (magazine) article have made us realise that there will be an immediate blowback once The Canyons is publicly screened... That's the nature of anything involving Lindsay," he said.

He added that in a way it's good they're not at Sundance, as they weren't prepared and weren't organised.

But Schrader insists his decision to stall screenings have nothing to do with the quality of the movie.

"The film is very good. I have no qualms about that," he said. (ANI)
