Lydia Hearst to Play Lindsay Lohan in 'Pocketbooks'?

Lydia Hearst is in talks to star in the upcoming comedy Dogs in Pocketbooks in the lead role based on Lindsay Lohan.

The 26-year-old model and heiress “will play a bratty movie goddess in and out of rehab, in trouble with the law, and hounded by greedy agents, predatory paparazzi, off-the-wall stalkers and crazed media — a role obviously based on Lindsay Lohan,” screenwriter Charles Casillo told the New York Post.

But the film, he adds, “is in no way mean-spirited towards” the actress, 24, who’s currently in rehab.

“It’s more of a satire about the crazy people around her and the situations they generate. It satirizes the obsession with modern celebrity,” Charles explained.

Lindsay‘s family, however, is considering taking legal action since the film is “using her likeness without her being compensated,” TMZ reports.

Lydia shot down rumors that she has already signed onto the role saying “I am not officially signed onto any other projects.”
