The Inglourious Basterds director is reportedly interested in casting the troubled 23-year-old in an upcoming project, despite her stuttering career on the silver screen.
An insider is quoted by Absolute Now as saying: "Lindsay is just the kind of character Quentin loves.
"No-one expects her to do anything significant on film ever again but he has at least one role he feels she would be perfect for. It's a shocking, hardcore character but it will put her back on the map much as Quentin did for John Travolta."
Lohan's acting breakthrough came after her role in 1998 movie The Parent Trap. She has since appeared in a handful of cult teen films - most notably Mean Girls.
Lohan is currently lined up to star alongside Jessica Alba and Robert De Niro in forthcoming crime thriller Machete.
