Porn biopic rounds out its cast.
Chloë Sevigny has joined the cast of ‘Lovelace,’ the in-production biopic of one of the most famous adult film actresses of all time, Linda Lovelace. Sevigny will portray a feminist journalist assigned to write a story about Lovelace, who is being played by Amanda Seyfried.
Based on Eric Danville’s biography ‘The Complete Linda Lovelace,’ and penned by Andy Bellin, the film follows Lovelace’s rise to fame as the iconic porn star of 1972’s ‘Deep Throat,’ to her subsequent transformation into feminist, anti-porn activist Linda Marchiano, with the story told through the perspective of three interviewers at various stages of her life.
Sevigny joins an ensemble cast that includes Peter Sarsgaard, Hank Azaria, Adam Brody, Bobby Cannavale, Chris Noth, Sharon Stone, Juno Temple, Debi Mazar, Wes Bentley, Romeo Brown, Robert Patrick, Eric Roberts and James Franco.
EW adds that Demi Moore, who was on board to play famed women’s rights activist and Ms. Magazine founder Gloria Steinem, has since left the biopic. The actress was forced to pull out of the film due to “exhaustion.” A replacement has not been announced.
