IFC Films has snapped up the North American rights to the movie with a planned day-and-date theatrical/VOD release planned. Penned by Bret Easton Ellis, the film is described as a cross between “American Gigolo” and “American Psycho,” exploring the dark side of Hollywood, in a story centered on a scheming and very wealthy movie producer Christian (pornstar James Deen) who makes movies to satisfy his father’s demands that he maintain a viable career. Lindsay Lohan plays Tara, his girlfriend who’s hiding an affair with an actor from her past.  Christian becomes more and more demanding, inviting various sex partners to join him and Tara in his luxurious Malibu Canyon lair.
