Lindsay Lohan is working on getting a “work pass” so that she can get out of rehab to discuss her next movie Inferno before her January 3 release date, RadarOnline.com has learned.
The Mean Girls star is currently staying at a sober living home close to The Betty Ford Clinic in Rancho Mirage, California where she has been receiving treatment in recent weeks. Inferno director Matthew Wilder has been in constant contact with Lohan during her rehabilitation.
Wilder told RadarOnline.com: “Lindsay is happy and I have been sending her some films starring several actors that we would like to cast alongside her in our movie.
“She just received them so we are still waiting for her feedback but we really want her to be part of the whole experience even although she is not physically here in Los Angeles,” he added.
“Lindsay told me that she is working to get a work pass so that she can get out and meet us to discuss the project. Obviously, she would probably need some kind of monitor and I think that she feels cooped up sometimes which is understandable.”
Despite the ongoing struggles, Wilder says the actress “seems to be doing well” and is still “excited about Inferno.”
Lohan was sent back to rehab on October 22 by Judge Elden Fox and was ordered to stay in the rehab program until January 3, 2011.
If she successfully completes her treatment program and does not fail anymore random drugs test then Wilder and his producers are hoping to start filming Inferno as quickly as they can.
She has been missing from the big screen since 2007′s psychological thriller I Know Who Killed Me and her last hit movie was 2004′s Mean Girls.
