The actress has been cast in Inferno: A Linda Lovelace Story by director Matthew Wilder, who dropped Lohan last week (ends21Nov10) citing difficulties securing insurance for the troubled star.

In a post on his Facebook.com page, Wilder writes: "We are so honoured to have Malin and know that she will kill it."

Production on the movie was delayed earlier this year (10) after the Mean Girls star was imprisoned for breaching her probation over the summer (10).

Shooting was expected to begin this month (Nov10) but was once again stalled when Lohan was ordered to continue receiving treatment at California's Betty Ford Clinic until January (11).
