machete lohan Lindsay Lohan axed from new 'Machete' trailerAre Lindsay Lohan‘s DUI-related legal tussles and profane manicures affecting what’s left of her once (long, long ago) promising film career?

Is that why she’s not in the new teaser trailer for Robert Rodriguez’s “Machete,” even though she was in an earlier version? Or is the reason for the slice because she reportedly only has a brief (topless) cameo in the movie?

She is, however, on what wants to be a controversial poster for the film, which also stars Danny Trejo, Jessica Alba, Robert De Niro, Michelle Rodriguez, Steven Seagal and Don Johnson.

]]>LiLo pose we’ve (yawn) grown used to, she is seen licking a very large gun, wearing a nun’s habit, with blood splattered over the image. It reads: “Lindsay Lohan as The Sister.” Huffington Post reports that in the film, Lindsay (who is not dead) goes topless — swimming in a waterfall — with Alicia Rachel Marek, 34, who plays her mom. Meanwhile, the New York Daily News reports that Rodriguez is not commenting on whether or not Lohan’s included in the movie’s upcoming junket. But after her recent 90-day jail sentence for violating probation on 2007 DUI busts, she may not be available anyway. Darn. We would have just loved to report about what rude comment was written on her middle fingernail. Here’s the new trailer — without Lindsay.
