'Things' Can Wait For Lohan


A DUI arrest and a trip to rehab won't necessarily prevent Lindsay Lohan from taking a co-starring role in the grannies-on-the-run comedy "Poor Things."

In a statement issued to Variety, "Poor Things" producers Shirley MacLaine and Rob Hickman declare that the film's shooting schedule has been altered to allow for Lohan to shoot her scenes after she finishes her time at Malibu's ritzy Promises Residential Treatment Center.

"In the spirit of helping Lindsay Lohan and her rehabilitation, we have been asked by Lindsay to comply with her wishes to continue working on 'Poor Things'," MacLaine and Hickman said their Thursday (May 31) statement. "We are trying to rearrange the shooting schedule to facilitate her working at the end of the shoot to coincide with the completion of her rehabilitation. We wish her love and the blending of mind, body and spirit."

Lohan checked herself into rehab on Monday, two days after she was booked on suspicion of DUI after she crashed her Mercedes into a stand of trees on Sunset Blvd. The Beverly Hills Police Department also reportedly found a "usable amount" of cocaine in a subsequent search.

The accident, arrest and entrance into rehab came at the same time as Variety was reporting that Lohan, Rosario Dawson and Channing Tatum were joining the cast of "Poor Things." The Ash Baron Cohen-directed feature stars MacLaine and Olympia Dukakis as a pair of senior con artists.
