Amanda Seyfried: Linda Lovelace In Porn Star Biopic? Star In Talks
Will Amanda Seyfried be the one?
The "In Time" star is the latest name to be linked to playing the role of legendary porn star-turned-activist Linda Lovelace, Variety reports. She's in talks to play the role in the aptly titled "Lovelace," a drama based on a biography by Eric Danville. Peter Sarsgaard is in talks to play the role of Chuck Traynor, the man who turned the then-Linda Boreman into a porn star, married her and allegedly abused her before she filed for divorce.
Seyfried and Sarsgaard aren't the first stars to be attached to this specific film, as back in January, it was reported that Kate Hudson and James Franco would play Lovelace and Traynor, respectively; the film's directors, Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman, headed up the Allen Ginsberg biopic in which Franco starred last year. Olivia Wilde was rumored to be in talks for the role last week, but she denied her involvement.
Lindsay Lohan was set to play Lovelace in a biopic titled "Inferno" last year, but legal troubles have put the kibosh on that.
