Lindsay Lohan Update: Deadline Hollywood reports that Malin Akerman ('Watchmen,' 'Couples Retreat,' '27 Dresses') has been confirmed as Lohan's replacement.

Lindsay Lohan's star turn in the Linda Lovelace biopic 'Inferno' looked as if it could mark the troubled actress's professional comeback. But instead, after waiting months for her to emerge from rehab, 'Inferno' director Matthew Wilder now tells E! Online he has dropped Lohan from the project.

Earlier this month, Wilder indicated to Moviefone that he was dedicated to making the film with Lohan. "She'll finish her rehab and get out and, you know, life will go on," he said. "So, in brief: We are doing this with her, we are committed to her, and we are not squishy or fudging about that at all."

But just a few weeks later, Wilder is singing a different tune. "We are withdrawing our offer from Lindsay Lohan," he told E!, citing the difficulties of insuring the actress as a main obstacle to working with her. "We are currently in negotiations [with another actress] and working out the legalities of bringing her onboard."
