James Franco might play Hugh Hefner in Lovelace

12.20.2011by:

Can you imagine him in a smoking jacket with five girlfriends?

James Franco is currently in talks to have a cameo as Playboy founder Hugh Hefner in LOVELACE, an upcoming film from the directors of HOWL. Franco was originally a possibility for the male lead of the film but it didn't work out, and Peter Sarsgaard got the role.

Amanda Setfried is playing the title role of Linda Lovelace and will follow her rise to fame with DEEP THROAT, as well as her subsequent breakdown. Franco would only be on set for a single day, his screentime limited to scenes in which Hefter welcomes Linda to the Playboy mansion for a screening of her famous film, as well as a heart-to-heart talk.

The film is now in production in LA with Peter Sarsgaard, Hank Azaria, Wes Bentley, Bobby Cannavale, Chris Noth, Robert Patrick, Sharon Stone and Juno Temple.

Second time I see this mistake on this site. Sharon Stone is in the OTHER Linda Lovelace picture. I don't care what IMDB says, every other sites reported Stone was joining the one called Inferno.

It is the same film. Nu Image/Millennium films have had Inferno as the name of their Lovelace biopic for years (back when Anna Faris was going to do it). Now they've got this on their offical website.

No it's not the same movie. One has Malin Akerman and Matt Dillon [link] the other has Amanda Seyfried and Peter Sarsgaard [link]

And Googling it make it even more confusing. Many sites reports that she has joined Inferno and a few reports she joined Lovelace.

All I know is that Nu Image have had a Lovelace biopic called Inferno in development for years. First with Anna Faris (decided not to do something dark after House Bunny) then Rose McGowan, then Lindsey Lohan, then Malin Akerman. Suddenly they've announced a movie called Lovelace with Amanda Setfried.

So it's either

a) the same movie
or
b) They've swapped one Lovelace project for another.

I honestly think it's the former
