According to Variety, Adam Goldberg is in final talks to play porn star Harry Reems in the film, written by and to be directed by Matthew Wilder. The movie will be based on “Ordeal: An Autobiography” by Lovelace with Mike McGrady. Lovelace starred in Deep Throat, but later renounced her pornography career in the memoir saying that her career had been forced upon her by husband Chuck Traynor, to be played by Matt Dillon.
Also cast were Paz de la Huerta (“Boardwalk Empire”), former porn star Sasha Grey (“Entourage”) and Harold Perrineau, who will play Linda’s sometimes-lover Sammy Davis Jr.
Inferno: A Linda Lovelace Story will start filming this February in Louisiana.
