Lindsay Lohan to Play Linda Lovelace in Indie Biopic: Vows to Not Bare Any More Than She Already Has

Lindsay-lohan-boobage Which pretty much leaves it wide open. (Heh heh.) 

In what could be a potentially shrewd move to make hay while the sun shines on her tawdry tabloid exploits or an effort to put all her recent life drama into a project that might just pay out with an Oscar nom, it appears that LiLo is set to take on the title role of Linda Lovelace, of "Deep Throat" fame, in a biopic entitled "Inferno." 

The scoop came from Lohan's photographer pal, Tyler Shields, of the recent LiLo puts a gun in her mouth! controversial photo-shoot.

The movie project, which formerly had Anna Faris and Sam Rockwell attached, fell apart in 2008 after continued funding issues and Faris' withdrawal from the production. Courtney Love was also attached to play the lead, once upon a time. 

Linda-lovelaceLinda Lovelace's life has ample material for an Oscar-baiting performance. And, because my OCD compels me to synopsize her entire life (via information from our friends at Wikipedia), here goes:

The actress, born Linda Boreman, had to put her out-of-wedlock baby up for adoption when she was 20 and was seriously injured in a car crash shortly after.  While recovering from the accident, she became involved with Chuck Traynor, who would eventually become her sadistic husband/pimp/manager and who ,she claims (and witnesses mostly back-up), forced her to do "Deep Throat" through mental, physical and sexual abuse. Though "Deep Throat" remains the most financially successful porn of all time, Boreman only saw a one-time payment of $1250 for her work.  Later in life, Boreman became an anti-porn crusader, "decrying what she described as callous and exploitative practices in the pornography industry."  She died tragically (how else could she, really) in a car wreck in 2002, at the age of 53.

I'm fucking depressed now. Like "Monster" depressed. But we all know how that ended for Charlize Theron, so depressing is good, right?

Anyhoo!

It sounds like it could be a great project, especially if Sam Rockwell is attached, so I, for one, am rooting for Lindsay to make good with this.  But if the movie is a wreck, of course I will be the first to shun it at theaters and laugh about it on the internetz.  Maybe we could even end up with another Showgirls-scale disaster that will provide years of punchlines!

Ha! See that? Now I feel all sparkle-y again!

Oh, man. Poor Linda Lovelace. I live under a rock and I didn't really know who she was. So I looked her up. I don't recommend it. Punch to the stomach sads.
