Lindsay Lohan is eyeing some killer roles these days.Just days after signing on to Bobby, Emilio Estevez's low-budget ensemble drama about the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy, the erstwhile Mean Girl is now set to star opposite Jared Leto in Chapter 27, an indie film centering on the 1980 murder of John Lennon. Lohan will play a devoted fan of the former Beatle who befriends Lennon's killer, Mark David Chapman (Leto), shortly before the murder in New York 25 years ago.

Chapter 27 is being helmed by first-time filmmaker Jarrett Schaeffer, who also wrote the script. The film will be coproduced by Peace Arch Entertainment Group and 21 Grams producer Robert Salerno's Artina Films. Eschewing the tween roles that made her a star (see Disney's The Parent Trap, Freaky Friday, Herbie: Fully Loaded), the tabloid bait teenage drama queen is now trying to be taken seriously as an actor with indie cred. In Bobby, she'll play the unintentional love interest of
Elijah Wood's character in a multithreaded story about the day Senator Kennedy was shot at Los Angeles' Ambassador Hotel.

When she's not acting or dealing with claims adjusters (she's had three crashes in the past 14 months), Lohan is readying her next album. A Little More Personal (Raw), the follow-up to her 2004 debut Speak, which debuted at number 4 and sold over 1 million copies, has been pushed back from its original street date of Nov. 22 to Dec. 6.

Lohan still plans to perform the lead single, "Confessions of a Broken Heart," at the American Music Awards on Nov. 22 which will air live on ABC. She also directed the video for the song, which takes its inspiration from her real-life problems with her estranged father, Michael, and stars sister Aliana as a Lindsay stand-in. In the meantime, shooting on Bobby is slated to commence next week, after which Lohan will likely segue into Chapter 27 early next year.

I don't think Lindsay Lohan is mature enough to take these big roles. There are so many young and talented actresses out there.
