Actress lands lead role in biopic of Linda Lovelace

Lindsay Lohan is to play late porn star Linda Lovelace in a new biopic.

Inferno will chart the adult actress’s colourful life and her rise to fame following the release of 1972 flick Deep Throat.

We’ve all thought that Lindsay would be a great choice for a while now, and we’re all convinced that she is going to do it,’ says producer Wali Razaqi.

For at least a year, the director [Matthew Wilder] and I have gone back and forth imagining how awesome of a performance she could give if she was in the movie.’

Linda, real name Linda Susan Boreman, died in 2002 after a car crash in Denver.

Not that Lindsay‘s life is similar in any way – but she’s been through a lot of ups and downs,’ Wali Razaqi tells The Los Angeles Times.

A lot of times you’re loved and then you’re hated, and I think she can relate to those emotions and feelings.’

Bill Pullman, 56, is in talks to portray Playboy founder Hugh Hefner.

The official announcement about the film’s casting will be made at this month’s Cannes Film Festival.
