Lindsay Lohan & Colin Farrell Hook Up

Lindsay Lohan & Colin Farrell Hook Up

Lindsay Lohan and Colin Farrell have reportedly teamed up for the Neil Jordan-directed drama Borgia, a period piece about the internal struggles of the most powerful family in 15th century Rome.

Third time’s a charm for Jordan (Breakfast on Pluto) who penned and will finally direct Borgia with Warner Independent Pictures.

Borgia fell through twice! In 2002, financing fell through for then stars Ewan McGregor and Christina Ricci. In late 2005, the same thing happened for Colin Farrell and Scarlett Johansson.

Borgia tells the story of Cardinal Rodrigo Borgia, a powerful man who took over papal duties after the death of the pope in 1492. Lindsay will play Rodrigo’s daughter Lucrezia Borgia, who’s torn between her family duties and a desire to find true love. Colin will play Rodrigo’s youngest son Cesare, a duplicitous and manipulative sibling who considers himself his sister’s closest confidante.

The role of Rodrigo Borgia has yet to be cast. Filming is expected to start in late 2007 in Rome, Italy.

FYI: This tip was sent via email, so it could very well be fabricated. Sounds like this could just be a rumor…

    oy, lalohan doing an accent? why does god hate us?

    So, if I’m reading this right, “Borgia” is going to attempt to portray the most infamous female from this family as a conflicted pawn? And furthermore, Lilo has been hired to do the job? Wow. Just wow.

  • Vanessa

    Lindsay seems like a terrible choice for this type of movie. She’s only a mediocre actress. Can’t act very well. Can’t sing either. Why is she famous again…?
    I’m excited Colin is doing a period piece again. Hopefully it’ll be better than Alexander!

  • piper, with a low

    Here’s hoping that Lohan’s lack of professionalism won’t send Colin to the nearest bottle.

    And really hoping that nothing drives him into her pants!

    And keep Cougar Dina off the set, please!

    Re cast Lohan with Ricci – Colin and Christina would be great

  • Ruth

    I can’t believe that they have cast LL as Lucrezia Borgia! Must be a joke.

  • Vanessa

    I agree with timshel. Christina Ricci would be so much better for this part.

  • [Fug Face [x]]

    he probably banged her a million times in real life.

    Would love to see this story on film – it is a fascinating one, to be sure. Lohan could surprise us all and be great as Lucrezia, although I tend to see her more in the role of Sancha than Lucrezia (would love to see AJ as Lucrezia). Despite all the craziness that surrounds Lohan, she does have some talent.

    For anyone interested in reading a fictionalized account of the house of Borgia, I recommend a novel called ‘The Borgia Bride’ by Jeanne Kalogridis.

    Lohan peaked at Parent Trap. Let’s not beat a dead horse.

    Until imdb confirms this, I seriously do not want to believe that LL is going to be cast as Lucrezia. Renaissance history is much too precious for her to even touch. I doubt LL even knows who Lucrezia Borgia is. I just hope that if this film does happen, LL wont be a part of it. Colin is a perfect Cesare–but quite frankly, I would prefer someone more mature to take on the role of Lucrezia. The woman was cunning and manipulative–not a dumb drunk. Ricci could do Lucrezia Borgia justice. I can already imagine the rumoured incest between Colin and Christina–perfect.

    LIEEEEE!!!!!!IMDB doesn’t have that information…about Borgia or the cast…IMDB always have rumors too and doesn’t have any of Borgia.

  • Valmont

    I know that this article was posted a few months ago but…anyway, cant believe what Im reading. LL is a bad choice! She doesn´t even know how to act! Producers should have in mind that everytime she appears in the magazines, it is not because of her great acting talent, it is because…lets recognise it, she´s a drunkard slut! Furthermore, Im spanish, and frankly, I feel embarrassed about picking her for the role (remember Lucrecia Borgia was half spanish). To sum up: really bad choice!

    On the other hand, I think Colin will do a great job. He has already shown that he can take part in dramas. He´ll be a treat for the eyes too.

    About the hooking up thing, who knows? I think Colin deserves much more and that, if the rumor its true, he was probably just having a good time (lucky bitch).
