Lindsay Lohan is let go from film; Perez Hilton lets it fly on Twitter

April 26, 2010 | 10:42 am

Lilo-eyes Lindsay Lohan has been dropped from the film "The Other Side," TMZ reports, in what the movie's director David Michaels calls a choice to "move on." Perez Hilton, however, shows little sign of moving on when it comes to LiLo.

The filmmakers' choice may have something to do with whether Lohan is "bankable," according to a TMZ source familiar with the project. ("The Other Side" has been described as a mix of "Beetlejuice," "Alice in Wonderland," "Amelie" and "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest," to which we say, "perfect.")

Lohan told Gossip Cop on Sunday that she won't be meeting with her father, Michael Lohan, to discuss whatever it was that he wanted to put on the meeting agenda. Dad has given a big "or else" this time -- sit down with him and her sister Ali, and maybe a lawyer, or else he's going to court to push for a Britney Spears-type conservatorship.

Meanwhile, over the weekend, LiLo and Perez engaged in a Twitter spat, as Hilton on Saturday bombarded Lohan with links to his many blog posts about her and Lindsay on Saturday and Sunday soaked up fan support -- including some name-calling -- and tweeted that Hilton was simply seeking page views at her expense.

Foxwoods1 That Twitter barrage came as Hilton spent Saturday signing books with Mario Lopez and Emilio Estefan (Gloria's husband) at the Foxwoods Resort Casino in Connecticut. Then Hilton and Lopez later hit the resort's Shrine nightclub until closing time, with Hilton at one point jumping the VIP-table barrier to dance and take photos with fans on the dance floor.

Elephant in the room: The tattered fact that LiLo showed up at Perez's birthday party in March.

The Ministry just realized it doesn't have a "train wrecks" category and is saddened by that fact. You'll just have to follow us on Twitter (we're @LATcelebs) and hang with us on Facebook until new trains arrive at the station -- or derail nearby.
