H’wood hails ‘Herbie’

Everyone's favorite Beetle comes back to the bigscreen

HOLLYWOOD — Hollywood Boulevard became a NASCAR raceway Sunday for Disney’s “Herbie: Fully Loaded” premiere.

Souped-up vintage Beetles and stock cars were on display, while stands including Hot Dog on a Stick and Chipotle lined the concourse.

While topliner Lindsay Lohan said she had fun driving real race cars during the shoot — and did many of her own stunts — she won’t be pursuing racing as a hobby. Instead, she’s looking forward to appearing in Robert Altman‘s “Prairie Home Companion.” “It’s all about the timing,” she said, “I want a challenge.”

Disney’s Dick Cook noted this update on Disney’s 1969 pic marks the fifth Herbie pic. “Herbie is part of our culture — and everybody’s ready for a change” from other summer fare.
