Actress Olivia Wilde is considering to play the role of late actress Linda Lovelace in her upcoming biopic, which is produced by Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman. The Hollywood star, who has showed her skin in Cowboys and Aliens, is likely to strip down again for the Deep Throat star's film.
The Tron Legacy beauty has not yet decided whether to play Lovelace in the biopic. Olivia Wilde said, "I'm being very careful about my next project since I'm now in a position where I can be really picky - thank God, finally." Meanwhile, she hinted that she is interested to take the role. "It would be a tremendous honor," she told E! Online.
Olivia Wilde has a clear idea about Linda Lovelace's career and she calls her a fascinating woman. The actress added, "It's such a cool role. She was a fascinating woman with where she came from to 'Deep Throat' to then working with Gloria Steinem and Nora Ephron. It's really fascinating."
However, there is another biopic being made on the life of Linda Lovelace by Matthew Wilder. The movie has been titled Inferno: A Linda Lovelace Story. Previously, Lindsay Lohan was roped in to play Lovelace in the flick. But later, Malin Akerman has been tapped to replace the actress.
