Blo's next gig

Lindsay Lohan will bring Fisher Willow to the big screen in the Tennessee Williams screenplay, "The Loss of a Teardrop Diamond" according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The screenplay tells the story of Willow, the disliked 1920s Memphis debutante daughter of a plantation owner with a distaste for narrow-minded people and a penchant for shocking and insulting those around her.

After returning from studies overseas, Fisher falls in love with Jimmy (played by Chris Evans), the down-and-out son of an alcoholic father ( David Strathairn) and an insane mother who works at a store on her family's plantation. She tries to pass him off as an upper-class suitor to appease the spinster aunt (Ann-Margret) who controls her family's fortune, but when she loses a diamond, it places their tenuous relationship in further jeopardy. Ellen Burstyn is attached to play Fisher's mother.

Production is expected to begin next year.
