While a presidential run is still years in the making, Lindsay Lohan is getting busy on the set of her first film in years. 

The 29-year-old child star teased fans with news of an upcoming movie, The Shadow Within, when she shared a close-up selfie on her Instagram account Tuesday.

"My first day on my new film!!!! Will be sending a sneak peak of my character this week #theshadowwithin," the actress wrote of her latest project while sporting a bright lip and seemingly damp hair. 

While the former Disney star had a series of blockbuster hits in the earliest years of her career, including The Parent Trap, Freaky Friday and Mean Girls, her career noticeably came to a screeching halt when she experienced a torrid timeline of multiple arrests, went to rehab on numerous occasions throughout the late 2000s and became entrenched in legal conflict over an array of misdemeanors and probation violations.  

Her highly anticipated career comeback—the titular role of Elizabeth Taylor in Lifetime's 2012 biopic Liz & Dick— turned out to be a commercial flop and the actress hasn't experienced a hit film since.

As of late, Lohan has turned her career attentions to guest appearances on television shows like 2 Broke Girls and made her stage debut in October 2014 at the London West End Theater in David Mamet's Speed-the-Plow. 

This year, she was featured in the trailer for the short film Till Human Voices Wake Us. In October, the actress announced she was heading in an entirely new direction when she revealed her plans to potentially run for the highest political office in the land.

"In #2020 I may run for president. Through ups and downs #YESWECAN lets do this @kanyewest #truespirits thank your for inspiring us to be better people @barackobama #kanyewest2020 #lindsaylohanat35 #lindsaylohan2020 with #34yearsofEXPERIENCE #unitingWORLDnations @aliforneycenter @savethesociety @unicef," the actress wrote on her Instagram account.

While it's unclear still if Lohan was joking about her future career aspirations, President Ronald Reagan was a film star first, so it seems there's still hope for Lohan when it comes to moving to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
