Seyfried to Play Linda Lovelace!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 4th, 2011


Linda Lovelace’s story is infamous. A Florida schoolgirl, fresh-faced and innocent, became a porn star practically overnight when she met a man with a vision…of her naked on film. The script for the film is based on the book “The Complete Linda Lovelace” by Erik Danville. Seyfried (Letters to Juliet) is in talks to play the title role.

The drama, titled Lovelace, is penned by W. Merritt Johnson (Temple Grandin) and Andy Bellin (Trust). It is helmed by Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman (both of Howl), with no word on a director as of yet. Other producers include Avi Lerner (The Expendables), Heidi Jo Markel (Trust), and Laura Rister (Margin Call). Peter Sarsgaard of Green Lantern is in talks to play Chuck Traynor, the man who reportedly coerced Lovelace into her less-than-savory job.

Linda Lovelace was the star of 1972’s Deep Throat, one of the highest-grossing independent films ever. After years of the porn star life, she left Traynor (whom she had married) and accused him of victimization.

A rival project, Inferno, is slated to start filming the same month as Lovelace – rival because it’s the same story, except starring Malin Ackerman (Watchmen) and Matt Dillon (Old Dogs).
