Kate Hudson & James Franco Join Different Linda Lovelance Biopic
Honestly, I don't know how James Franco has time to sleep or sit on the toilet for more than a few seconds everyday. We just recently heard that Franco will direct and star in an adaptation of The Night Stalker along with the plethora of other projects in the works. Now Deadline reports Franco is in discussions to play pornographer Chuck Traynor in a biography of Linda Lovelace, the porn star turned anti-porn advocate. In addition, Kate Hudson apparently has the offer to play the titule role in Lovelace. The two will play the husband and wife who made waves in the adult film industry with the infamous 1972 porno Deep Throat.
After quitting the business, Lovelace changed her name to Linda Boreman and then revealed that Traynor had forced her into prostitution and pornography through physical abuse and apparently hypnotism. Written by W. Merrit Johnson, the film is actually an adaptation of Eric Danville's biography The Complete Linda Lovelace. Franco should be comfortable with the role since Howl directors Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman are at the helm of this new biopic. It's important to note that this project has nothing to do with Inferno, the Lovelace biopic that now has Malin Akerman in the lead role after Lindsay Lohan's personal problems prevented her from starring in the film. However, apparently both projects are having trouble getting financing together. Interested?
