The indie biopic Lovelace is currently in production, but we’ve already seen a number of set photos and images from the Linda Lovelace pic. The film stars Amanda Seyfried as the titular porn star who rose to prominence following 1972’s Deep Throat. Lovelace would eventually go on to claim that her husband (played by Peter Sarsgaard) physically and verbally abused her and coerced her into the pornography business. Howl directors Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman are behind Lovelace, and the film was recently profiled in a piece in the New York Times. Included in the piece are a couple of new images, as well as a poster for Deep Throat featuring Seyfried. Hit the jump to check them out, as well as some comments regarding the tone and story of the film.

The biopic is described in the New York Times piece as “a blend of the studied naïveté of Paul Thomas Anderson’s Boogie Nights with the gravity of a real-life story.” The story will reportedly evolve in tone as it covers Lovelace’s “ascent, decline and ’80s-era redemption.” The tone appears to be quite dark, as is evident by this bit on the difficulty of casting the pic:

“Casting proved an overall challenge for Lovelace: women were concerned about the nudity and the brutality, while the agents of male performers withheld the script, written by Andy Bellin, from their clients. ‘They read it,’ said Heidi Jo Markel, a Lovelace producer, ‘and they said, ‘I wouldn’t give it to our actor, because he’d do it, and we’re scared.’ ”

In the end, they rounded up an incredibly impressive cast that includes Sharon Stone, Adam Brody, Chloe Sevigny, Juno Temple, Sarah Jessica Parker, Chris Noth, Robert Patrick, and James Franco. Head over to NYT to check out the rest of the profile, which also touches on the competing Lovelace biopic Inferno.
