Lovelace the biopic of porn legend Linda Lovelace, premieres tomorrow during the Sundance Film Festival. Thanks to Entertainment Tonight, we have the first clip. This first look at the film show’s fanboy favorite Amanda Seyfried as Linda Lovelace during a photo shoot with Wes Bentley as photographer Larry Marchiano, who will eventually become her second husband.
Based on Eric Danville’s bio “The Complete Linda Lovelace,” the film follows Linda Boreman’s transformation into Linda Lovelace, who is used and abused by the porn industry at the behest of her coercive husband, Chuck Traynor (Peter Sarsgaard) before taking control of her life, and her subsequent transformation into feminist, anti-porn activist Linda Marchiano.
Directed by Rob Epstein (Howl), Lovelace features an all-star cast including Sharon Stone, Chris Noth, Adam Brody, Hank Azaria, Juno Temple, Robert Patrick, Chloe Sevigny, Bobby Cannavale, Eric Roberts and James Franco as Hugh Hefner, (It was recently reported that Sarah Jessica Parker wound up on the cutting room floor.) Lovelace still doesn’t have a US release date, but will probably be picked up during Sundance. We’ll keep you posted.
