UPDATE: Lindsay Lohan has officially signed on to "Scary Movie 5," according to E! Online. She'll be joining Charlie Sheen, who's back for more meta-antics despite the fact that he was killed off rather spectacularly in "Scary Movie 4." Hey, you can always find a way to bring Charlie Sheen back from the grave, right?
"Scary Movie 5," which is reportedly a complete reboot of the franchise (for whatever reason the producers seem to think it needs to be), will hit theaters on Jan. 11, 2013.

We think it's pretty safe to say that Lindsay Lohan's been a hot mess machine had a rocky few years, but now that her court appearances are behind her, it seems the actress is turning her focus back to … drum roll, please … acting! That's right, the 26-year-old starlet is reportedly in talks for a lead role in "Scary Movie 5."
Though not many details of the horror-spoof movie are known, it seems that Lohan would join former "High School Musical" star Ashley Tisdale in the cast, The Wrap reveals. Malcolm Lee (of "Undercover Brother" fame) is set to direct. If the deal goes through, more details should flutter to the surface soon, as the flick is scheduled for an April 19, 2013, release.
In the meantime, LiLo filmed the Lifetime biopic "Liz & Dick," in which she portrays the iconic Elizabeth Taylor opposite Grant Bowler, who plays Taylor's famed husband Richard Burton. That project chugged along pretty well, except for one minor blip where she passed out from "exhaustion" and someone in her camp ended up calling 911 or something. Oops.
Hopefully Lohan can keep it together and get this deal for "Scary Movie 5" inked soon, because if anything can bring out her old "Mean Girls" star quality, we're pretty sure it's that. Or something.
