Amanda Seyfried Cast As Linda Lovelace

Amanda Seyfried (“In Time”) is in talks to play adult film star Linda Lovelace in Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman’s drama “Lovelace” for Nu Image reports Variety.

W. Merritt Johnson and Andy Bellin adapted Eric Danville’s biography about Linda Boreman’s rise to fame as iconic porn star Linda Lovelace of 1972’s “Deep Throat,” and her subsequent transformation into feminist, anti-porn activist Linda Marchiano.

The film is told through the perspective of three interviewers at various stages of her life. Peter Sarsgaard is in early talks to portray her pornographer husband Chuck Traynor. James Franco and Kate Hudson were previously attached to star.

Laura Rister, Jason Weinberg, Jim Young and Heidi Jo Markel will produce and shooting kicks off in January, the same time Matthew Wilder’s rival project “Inferno” gets underway.
