Lindsay Lohan‘s trip back to jail is a setback both in her personal life and in her professional life. The actress was set to start filming the Linda Lovelace biopic, Inferno, in November, and even though those plans may have to be pushed back, Lindsay’s director still supports her.
Matthew Wilder spoke with MTV News in an e-mail statement since Lindsay was sent back to the slammer this morning after violating her probation by failing two drug tests.
“We love her. We want her to do well,” Matthew wrote. “We will make the picture shortly.”
To help keep the show on schedule, Matthew said the film will now be shot in L.A. instead of Louisiana.
“I think [it] will make things easier on the Lindsay front,” Matthew explained. “I understand people’s exasperation. I share it. But there is a tremendous gift underneath all the obvious baggage.”
Lindsay could remain behind bars until her schedule hearing on Oct. 22, but at least she has a job lined up when she gets out — for now.
