Hollywood actress-singer Lindsay Lohan is desperate to star as screen legend Marilyn Monroe and is pitching hard for a remake of the latter's classic movie Some Like It Hot.The actress is famously obsessed with Monroe and has posed for two Monroe-themed photoshoots in the Spanish Vogue and the New York magazine. She also has a quote from the late actress' film to be remade tattooed on her wrist.
Sources close to Lohan have claimed that she sees real parallels between her life and that of the tragic star and is pitching a remake of the film to Hollywood bosses, reports hollywood.com.
According to OK! magazine, director Brett Ratner has already rejected the idea, but Lohan isn't giving up.
"Lindsay is pinning her hopes on getting a remake of Some Like It Hot off the ground... She's undaunted, but there's no script and there's no money. The only thing Lindsay has to sell is herself," said a source.
"She sees herself as the second coming of Marilyn Monroe - misunderstood, talented and in desperate need of an incredible film vehicle that will truly showcase her talents," the source added.
