Lindsay Lohan was hard at work in Cannes, according to an exec behind her next flick Inferno, in which she'll play porn star Linda "Deep Throat" Lovelace.

Muse Films production exec Jonathan Fong tells UsMagazine.com of the actress, who was nearly arrested when she lost her passport and couldn't return for a court hearing, "The purpose of the trip was for sales."

"That was her role as the star, making press appearances in support of the movie. She showed up at other parties, but she was promoting the movie in the atmosphere," continues Fong of Lohan, 23, who partied until 7:30 a.m. following news that a judge had issued a warrant for her arrest. "It helps to sell the movie to have her meet with the people who will fund the film."

Despite the Mean Girl star's legal problems, "Lohan is still attached to the project," says Fong.

And her SCRAM bracelet, which she'll have to wear at least until her July 6 court hearing, won't get in the way of production. "The film shoots in the fall," Fong says.
