The trade publication also reports Chris Evans and Ann-Margret are attached to appear in the independent film, which is slated to start filming next year. Constellation Entertainment is producing the film. Lohan will star in the 1920's Memphis-set film as a plantation owner's daughter "with a distaste for narrow-minded people and a penchant for shocking and insulting those around her," as the character is described.

The script was published as part of a collection called "Stopped Rocking and Other Screenplays" in 1984.

Blythe Danner and Carla Gugino currently star Off-Broadway in Tennessee Williams' Suddenly Last Summer. Williams' works have enjoyed an onstage resurgence in recent years, including Broadway revivals of A Streetcar Named Desire, The Glass Mengarie and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. Washington, D.C.'s Kennedy Center presented a summer celebration of his works in 2004, and Connecticut's Hartford Stage continue to explore his canon on an annual basis.

Other Williams plays include Summer and Smoke, The Rose Tattoo, Camino Real, Orpheus Descending, Garden District, The Milk Train Doesn't Stop Here Anymore, Out Cry, Vieux Carre, Something Cloudy Something Clear and Not About Nightingales.
