First Mark David Chapman, and now this! Lindsay Lohan, fresh off her big-screen role opposite John Lennon’s killer (aka the chubby Jared Leto) in Chapter 27, has signed up to star in another film about a murderer – this time, it’s Charles Manson.

Lohan, 21, will play one of Manson’s cult followers, Nancy Pitman, in the movie Manson Girls, E! Online reports. The site quotes the film’s producer, Brad Wyman, as saying, “Yes, I am doing it with Lindsay.”

The actress has been busy back at work since her departure from rehab last fall. She’s also recording a new album and will costar in an upcoming Jack Black movie, Ye Olde Times.

But as she recently told PEOPLE, she doesn’t see this as a “comeback.” “I think this is what I love to do,” she said. “I’m just continuing to do it – in the right ways.”
