American Psycho author Bret Easton Ellis and director Paul Schrader (Taxi Driver, Raging Bull) have cast Lindsay Lohan alongside porn star James Deen in the erotic thriller The Canyons... which is funded on Kickstarter. Yes, even established filmmakers are crowd-funding.

They've raised $159,000 and met their funding goal in only 3 days. Looks like a VOD strategy is planned for release.

The team turned to crowd-funding to allow more creative freedom with the material, without studio censorship. The kickstarter campaign is to supplement existing funds.

It seems this hybrid method of crowd-funding and lower cost VOD is the wave of the future. Of course, when you are Bret Easton Ellis and Paul Schrader, you can attract talent and funds to your project a little easier.
