Amanda Seyfried and Peter Sarsgaard are in talks to appear in Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman’s next, Lovelace. Variety has word that Seyfried is interested in taking on the title role with Sarsgaard up for the part of Chuck Traynor, Lovelace’s husband.
The film, written by W. Merritt Johnson, is based on Eric Danville’s bio “The Complete Linda Lovelace” and follows Linda Boreman’s rise to fame as iconic porn star Linda Lovelace of 1972’s Deep Throat, and her subsequent transformation into feminist, anti-porn activist Linda Marchiano.
The story is told through the perspective of three interviewers at various stages of her life.
The project represents one of two Lovelace biopics in the works. The other, Inferno, is planned from director Matthew Wilder and is currently planning on having Malin Akerman play the lead (both Anna Faris and Lindsay Lohan were formerly attached to that project).
Seyfried appears in the just-released In Time while Sarsgaard starred earlier this summer in Green Lantern.
