Olivia Wilde could take the role of Linda Lovelace from Kate Hudson
Posted by: Zack Bruce
For some reason, there’s two Linda Lovelace biopics currently in development.
The first, which was the only one I knew about, was the one that Lindsay Lohan was supposed to star in. When Lohan was kicked off the project, the role went to Malin Akerman. Matthew Wilder is the one directing and writing on that one, which is titled INFERNO.
The other titled LOVELACE will be directed by Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman. Kate Hudson and James Franco are attached to that one, except for the fact that Hudson had to put it by the wayside due to her pregnancy. Since Hudson is now fulfilling her motherly duties, Olivia Wilde may step in for her. She told E! this, “It would be a tremendous honor. It’s such a cool role. She was a fascinating woman — with where she came from to Deep Throat to then working with Gloria Steinem and Nora Ephron.”
Franco is still on as to play Lovelace’s manager-husband Chuck Traynor.
