Lindsay Lohan 'sacked from Linda Lovelace film'

22 November 2010 4:01 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Director of Inferno says he was forced to dismiss actor, who was due to play 70s porn star in biopic

Lindsay Lohan has reportedly been sacked from the role of Linda Lovelace in a forthcoming biopic of the 70s porn star.

Matthew Wilder, director and screenwriter of Inferno, said on his Facebook page at the weekend that he had been forced to dismiss the actor due to her ongoing travails. Lohan is currently in rehab trying to overcome addiction issues relating to drugs and alcohol. She spent two weeks in jail in August and 22 further days on a residential drug programme after an La judge ruled she had violated her probation on a 2007 conviction for drink-driving and cocaine possession.

Wilder said: "We stuck by her very patiently for a long time with a lot of love and support. The impossibility of insuring her and other issues have made it impossible for us to go forward. »

Lohan Blows Lovelace Role

21 November 2010 9:40 PM, PST | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

According to Matthew Wilder, writer/director of the upcoming 'Linda Lovelace' bio-pic "Inferno", attached actress Lindsay Lohan ("Mean Girls") has officially been detached fom the role. Lohan is expected to remain in drug rehab until January 2011.

Wilder confirms that his production team has now cast Canadian actress Malin Akerman ("Watchmen") to play the lead in the film adapting the novel "Ordeal: An Autobiography Of Linda Lovelace" :

"...Linda Boreman was just twenty-one when she met Chuck Traynor, the man who would change her life. Less than two years later, the girl who wouldn’t let her high school dates get past first base was catapulted to fame she could never have imagined in her wildest dreams—or worst nightmares. Linda Boreman of Yonkers, New York, had become 'Linda Lovelace', international adult film superstar.

"The unprecedented success of 'Deep Throat' made porn popular with the mainstream and made Lovelace a household name. »

21 November 2010 8:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Lindsay Lohan has been replaced in the biopic of Deep Throat porn actress Linda Lovelace by Malin Akerman. Inferno is set to roll into production soon, adapted from the book “Ordeal: An Autobiography by Linda Lovelace with Mike McGrady,” by Matthew Wilder.

Online: “We are withdrawing our offer from Lindsay Lohan,” he said, “We have stuck by Lindsay very patiently for a long time with a lot of love and support. Ultimately, the impossibility of insuring her–and some other issues–have made it impossible for us to go forward.”

10 November 2010 12:03 PM, PST | GetTheBigPicture.net | See recent Get The Big Picture news »

If you don't know, Inferno is a biopic on the late porno actress Linda Lovelace (played by Lindsay Lohan), who later disclosed through an autobiography that she was drugged, beaten and raped by her husband Chuck Traynor.

With an interview with Moviefone, director Matthew Wilder states that the film will likely be Nc-17.  He says, "I believe so. Curiously, our financier -- or so I have heard -- is interested in this as an Nc-17 or perhaps as an unrated movie. There is certainly no one saying, "Please, play it safe!""  He also goes on to say that Lohan will be nude and there are no scenes she felt uncomfortable performing.   »

'Inferno' Director: Lindsay Lohan Is a Great Actor, and I'm Waiting for Her

9 November 2010 9:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Filed under: Celebrity Interviews, Cinematical

As just about everyone on the planet knows, the late Linda Lovelace will be portrayed by the troubled Lindsay Lohan in the biopic 'Inferno' -- if she ever gets out of rehab and legal trouble.

But the movie's director, Matthew Wilder, remains committed to the troubled actress, despite years of struggling to get the project off the ground. (Anna Faris had been attached to play Lovelace as far back as 2007, but she dropped out in 2008 to focus on comedy.)

Whenever filming does kick into gear, the movie will tell the story of the hugely influential pornographic actress whose seminal film 'Deep Throat' put her on the map nearly 40 years ago and who proved her vulnerability in a horrific autobiography that revealed the true nature of her relationship with one-time husband Chuck Traynor. Forced to perform sexual acts at gunpoint, Lovelace was drugged, beaten and raped »

Despite the provocative nature of the recently leaked promotional photos for "Inferno," which feature a scantily clad Lindsay Lohan as porn star Linda Lovelace, director Matthew Wilder told MTV News the subject matter behind the biopic is not at all sexy.

Wilder said the inspiration for that particular scene came from a very dark place (much like the tone of the entire film, which he explained earlier this year): the first time Lovelace's then-husband, Chuck Traynor, forced her into pornography.

"The [photos] represent the scene that you will see in the movie," Wilder said. "Her husband took her to a hotel room. [He] kind of ambushed her and didn't tell her what was going on. »

Lindsay Lohan’s “Inferno”: More freaky than “Freaky Friday”

31 May 2010 5:32 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Hollywoodnews.com: Aerik Von, an employee of festish site deadlydommes.com caught a glance at the “Inferno” screenplay – the upcoming project which Lindsay Lohan is slotted to play porn star Linda Lovelace – and it looks to be an embarrassing project for the young star.

Even though Mark Wahlberg came to be known as a prestigious actor after playing fictitious porn star Dirk Diggler in “Boogie Nights,” the explicit scenes featuring Lohan make that 1997 title look like a G-rated Disney film.

In an interview with the NY Post, Von says that “Inferno,” written and to be directed by Matthew Wilder, is like a “Lifetime horror film,” and Lovelace’s husband Chuck Traynor is written as a psychologically and physically torturing antagonist.

“She’s made to say terrible things about herself while in the middle of sex acts. After her boyfriend assaults her, he kisses her bruises and asks, ‘Does this feel good? »

Over the past couple of weeks, the words "Lindsay Lohan" and "porn star" — regarding the actress' reported starring role in "Inferno," a biopic of the late "Deep Throat" star Linda Lovelace — have made for a lot of tabloid stories speculating about just what the troubled actress is getting into next. However, most of the stories and headlines about the film only focus on the fact that LiLo is playing a porn actress, and not what the film is actually about.

On Tuesday, "Inferno" director Matthew Wilder talked with MTV News about the film and Lohan's role.

"The way I describe this movie is that it's kind of like a grindhouse version of Ingmar Bergman's "Scenes From a Marriage, »

Lindsay Lohan tipped to play Deep Throat porn star Linda Lovelace

An official announcement is expected at Cannes next week that Lindsay Lohan is set to play the star of the infamous 1972 porn film, Deep Throat, in a new biopic

For an actor whose every iffy career decision is gleefully reported in the tabloid press, it would appear to be something of a brave move. Former child star Lindsay Lohan is to play the porn star Linda Lovelace in a forthcoming biopic, according to several Us reports.

The La Times quotes a producer on the independent production, to be titled Inferno, who confirms that Lohan has signed on the dotted line to play the star of infamous 1972 film Deep Throat. The official announcement will most likely be made at next week's Cannes film festival, which the actor is likely to attend.

A few years back, Anna Faris made headlines by revealing to MTV News that she was planning to play late porn icon Linda Lovelace in a biopic about her controversial rise and fall from fame. Now, after a period of dormancy following Faris' departure from the project, one of the film's producers has confirmed an eyebrow-raising replacement: Lindsay Lohan.

Last month, The New York Post ran an item saying that Lohan had been "telling friends" that she'll play the "Deep Throat" star. That report actually linked her to a different project entitled "Lovelace," when in actuality she has been in talks with the people making a competing project entitled "Inferno."

Howl Directors Find the Object of Their Next Film: Linda Lovelace

21 January 2010 12:35 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

One of the big curiosities of this year's Sundance is Howl, the semi-biopic of poet Allen Ginsberg, which stars James Franco and was directed by Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman. Now, just ahead of Howl's premiere, the duo has booked another film. They'll make Lovelace, based on the career of iconic porn star and eventual anti-porn crusader Linda Lovelace. Variety reports on the deal, saying that the film will be written by W. Merritt Johnson based on Eric Danville's book The Complete Linda Lovelace. Born Linda Susan Boreman, Lovelace became an icon after her film Deep Throat became as close to a mainstream crossover success as any porn film ever has. She claimed that her performance in porn was forced by then-husband Chuck Traynor, who also acted as her manager and supposed pimp. Lovelace fell into severe drug addiction before finding God, divorcing Traynor and renouncing porn. In her book Ordeal, »
