The acting in the trailer seems a bit cheesy, but I'm truly hoping that it's just confined to the trailer itself and not the film! Directed by Paul Shrader, the film has a slated 2013 release with no exact date set just yet.

James appears alongside Milk actor Gus Van Sant and Desperate Housewives beauty Tenille Houston in the movie - which tells the story of a group of youths and their sexual escapades in Los Angeles - and he credits Lindsay for bringing out the "best" in his acting ability.

Lindsay Lohan Worried About The Canyons Nude Scenes

It was announced earlier this week the troubled actress is to appear opposite a male porn star in the film - about five twentysomethings' quest for power, love, sex and success in modern Hollywood - but she is cautious about appearing naked.

"Lindsay and her team are concerned about the nudity that is involved. Lindsay would be required to do full frontal nudity, and the sex scenes are very, very graphic," a source said.

The 25-year-old star has already posed naked for Playboy magazine, but her team says when it comes to being nude on film, it is a different matter: "Yes, Lindsay has posed nude for Playboy, but she needs to make sure she is comfortable with it, and this is something she can handle as an artist. It's expected that Lindsay will sign the contract in the next two weeks, as filming begins at the beginning of July."
