The most infamous momager in showbiz is adding a new line to her resume - that of producer. But it looks like the only thing Dina Lohan is currently producing is grandiose ideas about who wants to work with her. TMZ obtained a copy of the business plan Lohan is sending to prospective investors in her film, Growing Defiant, which will star none other than her son Michael Jr. as a heroin addict. The movie focuses on "a hard look at the social pressures that can lead a kid in the wrong direction." And Dina is leading investors in the wrong direction, it seems, when it comes to signing superstars on for the project. According to her plan, she wants to sign Dakota Fanning, Selena Gomez, Michael Cera, James Gandolfini, Susan Sarandon, Tina Fey, Amanda Seyfried, Hayden Panettiere, Emma Stone and Mila Kunis to star in the project, among others. So for such big-ticket stars, how much does Dina have budgeted for their salaries? Why, just a mere $1,125,000. So divided equally, that would mean 125 grand apiece, not counting Michael Lohan, who's probably working to gain equal adulation in his mother's eyes as his infamous sister. And if we're keeping score, that's exactly half of what Tina Fey makes per episode of 30 Rock. The entire R-rated film is budgeted at $5.28 million, and the caveat at the end of the document says it all: "The cast listed above is a suggested cast list only. Michael Lohan is the only cast member who has been signed." It will probably remain that way, unless another out-of-work Lohan signs on.
