The star-studded biopic Lovelace has gained one actress but lost another. THR reports that Chloe Sevigny is set to reunite with her Shattered Glass co-star Peter Sarsgaard in the Linda Lovelace-centered film. The pic stars Amanda Seyfried as the titular Lovelace, and chronicles her experience as the world’s first porn star in Deep Throat. Sevigny is coming onboard to play a feminist journalist who sets out to find out who the real Linda Lovelace is. A large portion of the film will deal with Lovelace’s claims that her abusive husband (played by Sarsgaard) coerced her into the profession.
Additionally, Demi Moore has had to back out of her role in the film. She was slated to cameo as Gloria Steinem, but THR reports that she was admitted to the hospital Monday night and has now dropped out of Lovelace. The impressive cast includes Juno Temple, Wes Bently, Sharon Stone, Adam Brody, Hank Azaria, Chris Noth, and possibly James Franco as Hugh Hefner. Lovelace is currently filming in Los Angeles.
