During an appearance on American talk show The Wendy Williams Show on Friday, Lindsay Lohan announced that she has plans to shoot a film in Saudi Arabia soon, and that she's also looking into designing an island in Dubai.

She said that the movie will be called Frame and will follow the story of an American photographer who leaves her husband in America to move to Riyadh. The character becomes immersed in Saudi culture, said Lohan, and is taken in by a group of women who introduce her to their lives.

“She starts to understand the culture and how the women there are," Lohan told Williams. "Like fencing is a big thing there, so there are a lot of fencing courses and horse-back riding... the women take her in to understand why they cover and why they do these things."

No further details have been released about the film yet, but in December, Lohan tweeted out an article about the cinema and stadium reforms in Saudi, saying, "Please support this incredible #movement … I look forward to being a part of this with the movie #FRAMETHEMOVIE.”

Lohan also said during the interview with Wendy Williams that she was in talks over an island in Dubai. “I’m discussing designing an island in Dubai, at The World islands.” She went on to say that the island would be called Lohan Island.

“I figured I’ve gone to enough [islands], I should have my own," the 31-year-old actress said.

In October, Lohan shared an Instagram video from the manmade World Islands in Dubai, with the video captioned "#LOHANISLANDDUBAI":
