Linda Lovelace biopic Inferno ditches Lindsay Lohan for Malin Akerman

11.22.2010

Realizing that cocaine receptacle and bad publicity magnet Lindsey Lohan (MACHETE) would likely not be the most reliable person to take on the role of 70s porn icon and DEEP THROAT star Linda Lovelace, the makers of INFERNO: A LINDA LOVELACE STORY have instead decided to replace her with the more stable Malin Akerman (WANDERLUST).

INFERNO writer-director Matthew Wilder made the announcement yesterday via Facebook. Deadline adds that the reason for Lohan's departure was due to the fact that "she's impossible to insure and the producers loved Malin."

Wilder's 2008 Black List script is an adaptation of Ordeal: An Autobiography written by Lovelace and Mike McGrady, which delves into the psychology of the character and the abuse she exposed herself to. Here's the book's description (via Amazon):

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. But nobody, from the A-list celebrities who touted the movie to the audiences that lined up to see it, knew the truth about what went on behind the scenes.

Enslaved by the man who would eventually force her into marriage so that he could control her completely, Linda was beaten savagely with regularity, hypnotized, and raped. She was threatened with disfigurement and death. She was terrorized into prostitution at gun and knifepoint. She was forced to perform unspeakable perversions on film. She made Deep Throat under unimaginable duress.

Years later, Linda would come out of hiding to relate her side of the story—a modern horror tale of humiliation, betrayal, and violence that would rock the porn industry and put its teller in fear for her life...


INFERNO: A LINDA LOVELACE STORY begins principal photography in February.

I hope this movie still retains the NC-17 rating that was originally rumored a few months ago. I really want to see "all" of Malin Ackerman, not just her tits.

She's a good choice just based on the sheer fact that she's not a headcase and would be able to ACTUALLY work on the set and not be a liability.

my only hope was...

That Lohan would clean up , get in shape and do lots of nudity bc seriously she is a good actress (when sober, which is never) and she is beautiful. But Akerman is hotter so it works out, too bad though, this would have brought Lohan back (if she was clean)

Great news.

I for one am stoked about the news. Lohag is unreliable, a chronic drug addict, party girl who's been given many chances to straighten up her act & thinks she's above any repercussions. If you don't believe it, just turn on the T.V., her exploits are reported daily ad nauseaum. Ackerman is cute with limited acting ability who's been looking for a role to give her some more street cred. I just hope her hiring won't limit the amount of nudity that could be shown.

Sounds like nobody here has ever seen Linda Lovelace. She had much more talent than looks. Lohan and Akerman are 100 times hotter than she was.

Well it's definitely an upgrade from Lohan but I just can't picture it being a great film either way and it will probably be a network movie for HBO or Showtime, who knows.

I feel bad for Lohan

This young woman never had a chance. She never had a normal childhood, being whored out from fucking age THREE, and then fought over like a bag of money from the very fucked up people who should have been there to protect her. It's honestly sad, and it's no wonder she's so fucked up. I'm sure more than one of us judgemental pricks in here would have ended up the same way if we were in her shoes.

There are FAR sadder things that can and do happen to people on this earth, but I still feel bad

There are FAR sadder things that can and do happen to people on this earth, but I still feel bad for her, and the rest of us need to keep in mind that she is a human being with feelings. I think it's horrible that she's been so callously reduced to "cocaine receptacle" by a journalist I had come to enjoy and respect. I would expect to read that shit on Perez Hilton, not JoBlo.

George DID pick that "cocaine receptacle" line up from Perez Hilton... It's what Perez was calling him while he was snorting a line off Perez' cock! Sorry man, I just felt like being a bit of dick, and making fun of Lohan at this point is like beating a dead horse.

I've liked Malin ever since I first saw her on Entourage. She's easy on the eyes, and I think she has the potential to pull off a meaty (hehe) dramatic role like this pretty well.

Fun Fact

I seen video reviews by AngryJoe and Brad Jones. Both said that in Machete, that Lohan had a body double for all nude scenes, apparently in her contract, theres no nudity. So her trying to get the role is crazy. Its funny how he thought "I'm gonna defend her til she signs"...."ok screw that lets get Silk Specter, she done nude scenes before"

wow

Before now everything that I heard about this movie was just "a biopic about a porn star," and I couldn't have cared any less about seeing it. But after reading that plot synopsis, I'm actually really stoked to see this.
