CHICAGO – It was recently revealed in our forums that “Superman: Man of Steel” may shoot right here in the Windy City and one of the stars who could be spending time on Michigan Avenue is the controversial Lindsay Lohan, who is reportedly eyeing a role in the film already co-starring Henry Cavill and Amy Adams.

Radar Online broke the news that Lindsay Lohan (who has also reportedly asked that her surname be dropped a la Madonna and she just be referred to as Lindsay) will be auditioning for a part. According to the site, Lindsay Lohan will return from New York on Wednesday and meet with the producers of the film and read with an unnamed actor who is up for a crucial role in the reboot, Lex Luthor. The role that Lindsay Lohan would audition for is reportedly that of a villain as well.

Nathan Folks, a friend of Lindsay Lohan’s, told Radar, “Lindsay said she would be ecstatic to be part of the Superman movie…it’s a dream of hers.

Some outlets are reporting that Lindsay Lohan originally auditioned for the role of Lois Lane, which went to Amy Adams. The reports are that the producers liked Lohan enough that they’ve asked to see her for another role. Kevin Costner and Diane Lane have also already been cast as Jonathan and Martha Kent. The film will be written by David S. Goyer and directed by Zack Snyder (“Sucker Punch”).

Except for a small part in “Machete,” Lindsay Lohan has basically been out of theaters since “I Know Who Killed Me” in 2007. Before that, she had a streak of big-screen roles in “Georgia Rule,” “Bobby,” “Just My Luck,” “A Prairie Home Companion,” “Herbie Fully Loaded,” “Mean Girls,” “Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen,” and “Freaky Friday.” She has been rumored for several upcoming projects besides “Superman: Man of Steel,” including something called “Escaping the Game.” Only time will tell if Lindsay Lohan will be a comeback story or merely a cautionary tale.
