Lindsay Lohan is feeling beaten up and is unhappy about the possibility of facing jail time.
Director Nathan Folks appears to be in her corner, and says that a concerted effort by the media following the alleged necklace theft is merely a setback. However, he said, Lilo is set on making a comeback.
Recall in a recent moment in court when a Los Angeles judge admonished Lohan, and informed her that she is staring a prison sentence squarely in the eye.
In the same moment, the judge told her that she is no different than anyone else similarly situated. What a big blow to her ego, right?
She looked stoic, almost unmoved at what the judge had just told her. Some even say she gave the persona of being a Teflon Don in court. But insiders paint a different story.
Lindsay Lohan, according to sources, is feeling the brunt of her antics as her career and life flashes before her almost daily.
It's like she's walking a thin line, and what separates her from it is herself. She is turning out to be her worst enemy.
Nathan Folks has tossed Lindsay Lohan a lifeline by casting the embattled actress in her very first post-jail/rehab movie, Escaping the Game.
This could be her defining moment in her career, a moment to prove to the naysayers that she is marketable.
"What this jewelry store has done for publicity, has really got to her.Â She is clean. She really wants this to be her comeback, and I want it to be for her. I'm convinced it will be and I will do everything in my power to make it happen."
No one knows if Lindsay Lohan is jail bound or not, but Folks, who describes Lilo as a "good friend," is intent on moving ahead with the film.
In Escape the Game, Lohan's character is strong, a CIA agent who is tough and has a no non-sense attitude.
Folks compares the role to Angelina Jolie's in Salt. In fact, he says that Lindsay Lohan could be the next Angelina Jolie.
Now, that may be pushing it a bit too far, but the world is watching what the judge will do on March 10 when she makes her next court appearance on the felony theft charges.
