Jeffrey Friedman and Rob Epstein are making a biopic titled
Lovelace, based on the life of the late porn star Linda Lovelace.
The script of the film will be written by W. Merritt Johnson and
will be based on the book called 'The Complete Linda Lovelace' by
The character of Chuck Traynor, the husband and pornographer,
might be played by none other than James Franco. He is still in
talks with the film makers. But according to reports, the packed
schedule of Franco might not be able to give him time for Lovelace.
If he finally works on Lovelace, it will be his reunion with the
Howl directors, Friedman and Epstein.
Traynor played a significant role in Linda"s life. They were
married before the release of the blockbuster porn film Deep Throat
in 1972. When Linda and Traynor divorced, she revealed that it was
her husband, who had forced her into prostitution. She was
threatened at gunpoint by Traynor to work in the movie Deep
The title role has been bagged by Kate Hudson. The only hurdle
on the way of Lovelace is the lack of funds. Lovelace is the only
film being made on the life of Linda Lovelace. Another biopic
titled Inferno: A Linda Lovelace Story is also being
developed. It will be written and directed by Matthew Wilder.
Initially Lindsay Lohan was supposed to essay the role of Linda,
but later Malin Akerman was taken on board replacing Lindsay.
