Lindsay Lohan Signs Up To Play Manson Girl

Lindsay Lohan is following up her crazy year by joining a cult--in a new movie role, that is.

E! News has learned exclusively that Lindsay Lohan has signed on to star as Nancy Pitman, once a loyal member of Charles Manson's not-so-merry band, in the movie Manson Girls.

The film's producer, Brad Wyman of Junction Films, confirmed the casting coup.

"Yes, I am doing it with Lindsay," he tells E! News.

A source familiar with the deal says that despite the fact that Lohan has had some recent brushes with the law and just completed rehab, "the production company is insuring her for the film."
