A DEEP THROAT DILEMMA

Linda Lovelace
The most intriguing Hollywood casting calls and auditions in a long time must have been those for two rival film biographies about the porn pioneer Linda Lovelace which are currently going into production.
The two films, Inferno and Lovelace, will both tell the story of the colourful and conflicted Deep Throat actress who revolutionised the porn industry and became a '70s icon through her on-screen abilities, although she later regretted it and became an anti-porn crusader.  
Malin Akerman
Lindsay Lohan was originally set to take the Lovelace role in Inferno, but she has now been replaced by the Canadian actress Malin Akerman, who starred in Watchman and is no stranger to graphic on-screen sex scenes.
No one has yet been cast in the rival Lovelace movie although Kate Hudson has been widely rumoured for the lead role.
So far neither of the productions have the financing they need and it is not surprising that a movie about Lovelace would have trouble getting made. Apart from the obvious problem of how to depict the talent which made her famous, she continually changed her stories about her life in the porn industry, making her a difficult personality to decipher. 

Lovelace, who claimed she had been forced into pornography by a brutal and abusive husband, died in April 2002 aged 53 from car crash injuries.
