Sharon Stone Set to Play Linda Lovelace's Mother in 'Lovelace' Biopic
While the Malin Akerman led film Inferno seems to be stuck in development hell, Amanda Seyfried and Peter Sarsgaard recently replaced Kate Hudson and James Franco in Lovelace, another biopic about infamous porn star Linda Lovelace. Now according to The Associated Press reports that Sharon Stone will play Lovelace's mother in the film that will chronicle Lovelace's place in adult film history as the star of Deep Throat, one of the highest-grossing independent films of all-time which just happened to become the most well known porn film that also served as a gateway to years of victimization in the adult film industry.
Since Inferno has been working to get off the ground a little bit longer than Lovelace, I'm surprised both projects are still moving forward. Of course, it wouldn't be Hollywood if we didn't have two similar films competing every other year. Snow White and the Huntsman and Mirror Mirror will go head-to-head next year, but I'm betting the former will be the one that gets more audience attention and critical praise. As for the talent behind the camera in the case of these Linda Lovelace biopic, Lovelace has Howl directors Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman, so they have more of my attention at this point. Their cast sounds like it has some higher caliber talent on board, but I'm open to have both succeed in their own way.
