Lindsay Lohan is set to make her big screen comeback as a murder victim if she takes up a new movie deal.
The 24-year-old has been offered the part of Sharon Tate in an upcoming film about Charles Manson.
The movie is called Eyes of a Dream and is being produced by Brad Wyman, one of executives behind Monster starring Charlize Theron. It's hoped that the same Oscar magic that worked for Charlize will work for Linds too.
TMZ are reporting that Manson will be played by photographer Tyler Shields, who has worked with Lindsay in the past and who is also directing the film.
Sharon Tate was an American actress who was married to film director Roman Polanski. She was eight and a half months pregnant when she was murdered in her home with four other people by Charles Manson followers.
Lohan was most recently tapped to play porn star Linda Lovelace in the film Inferno but was let go from the project after her legal issues and stint in rehab coincided with the shooting dates. The director initially held out for Lindsay but ultimately could not wait forever and she lost the role last November.
In the mean time, Lindsay's legal battles are far from over. Lindsay is due back in court on April 22 for a hearing in a felony grand theft case stemming from her being accused of stealing a $2,500 necklace.
