Troubled Hollywood actress Lindsay Lohan is not part of Ben Affleck's crime drama, Live By Night. The film, to be released in 2014, is based on a novel of the same name, written by Dennis Lehane.

According to sources who spoke to Us Weekly, the cast has yet to be decided and when that does happen, the 27-year-old will not be considered.

"It's not true. First off, no one has been cast. [Lohan] will not be cast in any role in the movie. She is not being considered for any role in the movie. She won't be in the movie," the source stated.

The actress, who has only recently been released from a court-ordered 90-day period in rehab, will be seen in another production though - Paul Schrader's erotic thriller The Canyons. The film co-stars male adult film star James Deen. And part of her new schedule will also be a guest-stint as host of popular talk show Chelsea Lately. For information on timings, click here.

The Canyons will release on 2 August in the US. There are no plans, as yet, to release elsewhere in the world. The film also stars Nolan Gerard Funk and Amanda Brooks.

Meanwhile, the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) has confirmed a $2m deal with Lohan for an eight-part documentary series about the former Disney star's career and future plans.

In a statement released by New York Daily News, it is understood OWN "will air an exclusive interview with Oprah and Lindsay Lohan to be aired in August and an eight-part documentary series billed for 2014".

According to TMZ, OWN and Lohan's representatives have been haggling for quite some time. Sources told the gossip website the deal, when it was finally agreed, was actually signed at the Betty Ford Clinic, where Lohan was admitted.

Dina Lohan, the actress' mother, said she was pleased that someone like Oprah Winfrey would be her daughter's mentor, saying, "Oh it's fantastic, if anyone is going to help mentor you, it's going to be Oprah."
