Lindsay Lohan's Next Role: Assassin's Pal
11/03/2005 AT 08:00 AM EST
Lohan's role will be that of a Lennon fan who befriends the musician's murderer, Mark David Chapman (Leto), during the weekend that he kills the legend outside his New York apartment building.
This won't be Lohan's only movie project about an assassination. She's signed to appear in Bobby, Emilio Estevez's project about the 1968 murder of presidential candidate Robert Kennedy.
Not that the 19-year-old actress has put comedy behind her. In March, her new romance, Just My Luck, is scheduled for release. She costars with Chris Pine, the dreamy-eyed viscount in last year's The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement.
