Oscar host James Franco is reportedly in talks to star in a film about porn legend Linda Lovelace. Franco would play the role of Lovelace’s former husband and production manager of her famous film Deep Throat.
In talks to play porn star Linda Lovelace is actress Kate Hudson.
Franco definitely has one foot in the door: Â the film will be directed by Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman, the writers and directors of Franco’s indie Allen Ginsberg film, Howl.
It was announced at last year’s Sundance Film Festival that the movie, which will be based on Eric Danville‘s book The Complete Linda Lovelace, is looking for the funds to get it off the ground. Looks like they’re on the right path with these actors….
What is it with Linda Lovelace lately? Hey! I’ve got an idea! Have you guys considered hiring Lindsay Lohan?
