And in Blohan news:

Lindsay Lohan has reportedly been axed from an upcoming film about Charles Manson - after no one else would sign up to star alongside her.

(BANG) -

Lindsay Lohan has reportedly been axed from a forthcoming film about Charles Manson.

The actress was due to star in independent movie 'The Manson Girls' - playing Nancy Pitman, one of the cult followers of the notorious Manson who was convicted of seven counts of murder in 1971 - but was dropped after other actors refused to work alongside her.

The 21-year-old actress signed up for the movie in March and was due to start shooting in Los Angeles in July.

Manson masterminded a series of gruesome murders including that of pregnant actress Sharon Tate, the then-wife of director Roman Polanski. He is now 73 and serving a life sentence for first-degree murder in jail.

Nancy Pitman - who was known as Brenda when she was part of the 'Manson Family', the nickname given to his followers - ran away from her wealthy family home in Malibu, California, at the age of 16 to be with Manson.

While she didn't participate in the murders, she is believed to have accompanied Manson to the scene of the crime afterwards to help remove evidence.

Lindsay has hit the headlines more for her partying, drinking and alleged drug taking than her acting work recently. Her last big screen outing, 'I Know Who Killed Me' was a box office flop.
