Longtime filmmaker pairing of Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman have had their share of premieres at the fest all the way back to Where Are We? (Sundance ’91), The Celluloid Closet (Sundance ’95), award-winning Paragraph 175 (Sundance ’00) and more recently, broke from docs with Howl (Sundance ’10). They would naturally be on pace to deliver their second fictional, fact-based biopic starring Amanda Seyfried in the skin of Linda Lovelace. All-star cast for Lovelace includes: Peter Sarsgaard, Juno Temple, Sharon Stone, Robert Patrick, Chris Noth, Adam Brody, Hank Azaria, Wes Bentley, James Franco, Eric Roberts, Chloë Sevigny and Bobby Cannavale.
Gist: Written by Andy Bellin, this centers around Lovelace’s life as the star of the first porn movie with a plot, 1972′s “Deep Throat,” and pornographer husband, Chuck Traynor, played by Peter Sarsgaard. James Franco plays a young Hugh Hefner.
