Lindsay Lohan to Lead Netflix Movie Irish Wish

Lindsay Lohan will lead the upcoming Netflix film Irish Wish. The rom-com is part of a two-picture partnership, that was announced this March, between the Mean Girls actress and the streamer. The partnership excludes the previously announced holiday film Falling For Christmas, starring Lohan and Chord Overstreet that is scheduled for release November 10.

Irish Wish follows Maddie, a woman whose life takes an unexpected turn when “the love of her life gets engaged to her best-friend.” Maddie puts her feelings aside to be there for her best friend, and travels to Ireland to serve as a bridesmaid at their wedding. When Maddie makes a wish for true love, she awakens as the bride-to-be. According to Netflix, “Maddie soon realizes that her real soulmate is someone else entirely.”


Irish Wish rejoins Lohan with Janeed Damian, who wrote and directed Falling for Christmas. Damian co-wrote Irish Wish alongside Kirsten Hansen, Ron Oliver and Michael Damian. MPCA’s Brad Krevoy and Riviera Films’ Damian are producing. Amanda Phillips, Kirsten Hansen, Jimmy Townsend, and Vince Balzano will serve as executive producers. Filming for Irish Wish is set to begin this month in Ireland.

Lindsay Lohan’s Career

Lohan’s acting career began at a young age. In 1998, when she was only 11, she made a successful film debut on Disney’s Parent Trap remake. In 2003, she starred on another Disney film: Freaky Friday, opposite Jamie Lee Curtis, as a mother and daughter duo who switch bodies. The film was a box-office hit, grossing $160M worldwide, while earning Curtis a Golden Globe nomination.

In 2004, she starred in the cult classic film Mean Girls. Lohan was cast as Cady Heron, a young girl who moves to Illinois after living in Africa for 12 years, and must learn to navigate teenage life in the United States. Mean Girls is one of Lohan’s most notable films, and her performance gained positive reviews.

Lohan’s career slowed significantly through her adult life, seemingly as a result of legal issues and substance misuse. In recent years, however, the actress has started to make her way back to film and television. In 2018, she appeared on the British series Sick Note. In 2019, she starred and executive produced Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club, an MTV reality series about her business life and Mykonos beach club.

Lohan’s other film credits include Georgia Rule, Machete, Life-Size, I Know Who Killed Me and the Elizabeth Taylor biopic, Liz & Dick.
