One of the producers of an independent movie about 1970s porn star Linda Lovelace says Lindsay Lohan has landed the leading role.
Producer Wali Razaqi tells The Los Angeles Times that the 24-year-old actress will play Lovelace, while Bill Pullman has been cast to play Hugh Hefner in the period drama "Inferno."
Razaqi says the movie will be based on the life of Lovelace, who shot to fame with the landmark 1972 porno movie "Deep Throat."
He says the drama will delve into the "difficult stuff she went through and overcame."
Lovelace, whose real name was Linda Susan Boreman, starred in several adult films but gained stardom with the runaway hit "Deep Throat," one of the first porn movies that reached into mainstream culture.
She later denounced her pornography career and became a spokeswoman for the anti-pornography movement.
