Back in 1972, Linda Lovelace rose to infamy after starring in Deep Throat, a pornographic movie with a highly questionable medical premise. Although it was the source of her fame, Lovelace (whose real name was Linda Boreman) would go on to denounce her career, claiming that her first husband Chuck Traynor forced her to appear in the famous porn as well as others. She eventually left him and became an advocate against pornography before passing away in 2002 after a car accident.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Amanda Seyfried (In Time) is in talks to star as Lovelace in a biopic called simply Lovelace, along with Peter Sarsgaard, who might play Traynor. The film, written by W. Merritt Johnson (In Treatment) and Andy Bellin (Trust), is based on Eric Danville’s 2001 biography The Complete Linda Lovelace.
Oddly enough, there’s another Lovelace biopic in the works called Inferno: A Linda Lovelace Story, starring Malin Akerman and Matt Dillon. Dueling movies about complicated porn stars? Hey, it’s better than two asteroid movies coming out at the same time.
