Lindsay Lohan and Jared Leto, the freshest couple du jour, will have to take time off from their very important burgeoning music careers to make the upcoming independent film, Chapter 27, about the 1980 assassination of John Lennon. Variety.com reports that Leto, the 30 Seconds to Mars frontman, will play Lennon’s murderer, Mark David Chapman, while Lohan will play a rabid Lennon fan who befriends Chapman. On the musical tip, Lohan just released a new single “Confessions of a Broken Heart (Daughter to Father),” and Leto will take the stage with his band tomorrow night in Atlantic City.
Lennon was killed outside his New York City apartment almost 25 years ago. Sonic Youth recently commemorated the anniversary of Lennon’s death with two concerts in Paris.
