If it's crap ... We'll tell you
It seems that Amanda Seyfried ('In Time,' 'Mean Girls') will be appearing in 'Lovelace' for Millennium Films. The film is a biopic about legendary pornography actress Linda Lovelace and begins shooting in January. The film will not only detail aspects of the actress' career, including starring in the notorious 'Deep Throat,' but also document her tumultuous relationship with her husband Chuck Traynor, a pornographer himself who convinced her to get into the industry. She later got out of the business and divorced Traynor. The film's script is based on the book 'The Complete Linda Lovelace' by Eric Danville.
Sometimes you hear news of biopics and, because you aren't familiar with the person whose story is being given the big screen treatment, you lose all interest in the film. But I don't care if you've never watched an adult film in your life, Linda Lovelace sounds like a fascinating biopic subject. When you strip away the sleaze inherent in the films she was making, the humanistic side of her life story sounds both tragic and empowering. Seyfried is beautiful, no argument there, but she's also talented enough to take on this controversial role. The last time a major studio film was released that dealt dramatically with the adult film industry, we got the incredible, and Oscar nominated, 'Boogie Nights.' It will be interesting to see, however, if 'Lovelace' has to tangle with a potential NC-17 rating.
