And finally on the casting front, there’s the small matter of the return of Lindsay Lohan to deal with. Naturally, given her recent tribulations, Lindsay will be wanting to keep a fairly low profile, so what better way to do it than by playing a bloodthirsty, gun-wielding nun? She’s bound to win the tabloids round with that one…
A lack of screen-time in the official trailer had caused some to suggest that Lohan had been dropped from the film, but Rodriguez insists the troubled star will still have a significant part to play.
“She's great in the movie,” he told The Wrap, “and I think we are going to include her more in the next trailer. It seemed too exploitive to use her with everything that was going on. But also, as a filmmaker, part of me doesn't want to give too much of her in the movie away. I'll say this: she starts as one character and ends as someone else.”
What we do know is that her character April Benz will be anything but a shrinking violet, with a topless scene alongside her on-screen mother set to draw a certain element to multiplexes everywhere. Not us though, obviously. Ahem.
