‘Inferno’ Filmmakers Support Lindsay Lohan

By: / September 20, 2010

The top brass behind Lindsay Lohan’s upcoming film project are cautiously standing by their star in the wake of her recent failed drug test. Chris Hanley, producer of the Linda Lovelace biopic Inferno, admits he’s “not happy” that Lindsay’s slip-up could affect the film’s shooting schedule, but he still supports her.

“We are not expressing irritation,” Hanley tells People. “That is not to say we would not be upset over a breach of the court by Lindsay that has affected her personally, or the potential production schedule or location of the production significantly.”

Hanley pointed out that Lindsay’s battle with addiction is not exactly uncommon among Hollywood actors.

“We do believe that Lindsay’s talent does weigh very heavily in this matter,” he said. “Addictive personality disorder issues are pervasive in the film industry. I have worked with Robert Downey and others on movies I have made, and, frankly, talent and passion for a project matter the most to me.”

Responding to reports that the Inferno filmmakers were irritated with Lohan, director Matthew Wilder tells People: “Did this throw us for a U-turn? Yes. But no one has conveyed any pissiness about it.”
