I don't think any jokes are necessary here -- Lindsay Lohan backing out of a film titled A Woman of No Importance is funny in and of itself. According to her rep via People, La Lohan has simply been taking on too many roles as of late and "doesn't want to just yes everyone and compromise herself anymore." In the pic, she would have starred alongside Annette Bening (who was supposed to co-star with Lohan in Freaky Friday until she dropped out) and Sean Bean.

Honestly, with all her medical problems, so-called addictions and tardiness issues, it's probably best that Lohan take a little bit of a break; not including A Woman of No Importance, the girl currently has three films (Speechless, The Loss of a Teardrop Diamond, The Best Time of Our Lives) in pre-production, one filming (I Know Who Killed Me) and one (Georgia Rule) she will soon need to promote. Oh, and that's not counting her potential involvement in that apocalyptic horror flick, as well as a Steve Nicks project. Damn, no wonder she's a mess.

Right now, there's no word on a replacement for Lohan (might I suggest someone a little less controversial -- Dakota Fanning, perhaps?). A Woman of No Importance is based on the Oscar Wilde play, will be directed by Bruce Beresford (Driving Miss Daisy) and is due out sometime in 2008.
