Malin Akerman has replaced Lindsay Lohan in the role of Linda Lovelace in Matthew Wilder’s “Inferno” reports The Hollywood Reporter.
Based on 1980’s “Ordeal: An Autobiography”, the story follows how Lovelace became a household name in 1972 due to the massive success of porn film “Deep Throat”.
She later renounced her pornography career, alleging it had been forced upon by her sadistic husband. She subsequently became a staunch anti-pornography advocate which she remained until her death in a traffic accident in 2002.
Lohan’s involvement was announced earlier this year and Wilder, who directs from his own screenplay, stuck by his star throughout much of her media troubles. Only recently though, the sheer impossibility of insuring Lohan has forced him to seek another actress.
Shooting kicks off in February.
