Lindsay Lohan will play the lead in the independent movie “Inferno” about 1970s porn star Linda Lovelace.
According to Variety, “Inferno” producer Wali Razaqi told The Los Angeles Times about the casting.
Lohan will play Lovelace, who shot to fame with the landmark 1972 porno movie “Deep Throat,” while Bill Pullman (“Spaceballs,” “Independence Day”) will portray Playboy magazine founder Hugh Hefner in the film.
Matthew Wilder will direct.
“Deep Throat” was one of the first porn movies to reach into mainstream culture.
Lovelace, whose real name was Linda Susan Boreman, later denounced her pornography career and became a spokeswoman for the anti-pornography movement.
She died in 2002 following a car crash in Denver.
