Amanda Seyfried and Peter Sarsgaard in Talks to Play Linda Lovelace and Chuck Traynor in Biopic LOVELACE

     November 1, 2011

The battle of the Linda Lovelace biopics marches on, as Amanda Seyfried and Peter Sarsgaard are now in talks to star in Lovelace. Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman (Howl) are onboard to direct the pic, based on Eric Danville’s book The Complete Linda Lovelace. Variety reports that Seyfried will play Lovelace, with Sarsgaard in talks for the role of her pornographer husband Chuck Traynor. Lovelace came to prominence after her starring turn in the 1972 porn film Deep Throat. She quit the business and divorced Traynor years later, claiming that her husband took advantage of her and coerced her into pornography and prostitution.

James Franco and Kate Hudson were previously attached to Lovelace, but both dropped out after Hudson became pregnant. A competing project titled Inferno (the Lindsay Lohan one) is being developed with Malin Ackerman as the star. Production on Lovelace is set to begin in January.
