Lindsay Lohan is on the comeback trail for real, you guys, and she knows exactly how to make her mark this time around: By playing the lead in "50 Shades of Grey."

According to the blog Naughty But Nice Rob, a "friend" of the troubled actress has indicated that Lohan knows that this role could be big. Huge. Here's the intel:

“Lindsay needs a big high profile role. She needs to be part of a movie everyone wants to see and thinks ‘Fifty’ is a role she would be perfect for,” adds one friend. “She has read the book several times and knows this is a character that she can play. She wants to be part of something iconic, something that will live forever like Harry Potter or The Hunger Games. Now, she thinks she has found it.”

So, you heard it here...well, second. Once she's out of rehab LiLo might well be gunning to be tied up, whipped and controlled on the big screen.
