Lovelace biographical film gains more cast
The Linda Lovelace biographical film called Lovelace, the one that recently gained Amanda Seyfried to play the pornstar Linda Lovelace who turned activist against the adult film industry, has been gaining cast members behind the scenes.
While the other planned film about Linda Lovelace called Inferno: A Linda Lovelace Story has recently announced that it has gained Sharon Stone to play Lovelace's mother in the film, Lovelace has popped up to say that they've secured Demi Moore.
If you look back through the history of these two films it does feel as though they are going head to head and popping back and forth with announcements. Of course there have been many announcements that have come and go and names that have been associated with the film and then pulled, but it looks like Lovelace is the film that has made the most progress.
According to the The Hollywood Reporter announcement that Demi Moore will be playing the feminist Gloria Steinem, there are a number of other names confirmed for the film.
Eric Roberts, Bobby Cannavale, Chris Noth, Sharon Stone, Juno Temple, Wes Bentley, Romeo Brown and Robert Patrick are all announced with some other key members.
While Amanda Seyfried is confirmed to be playing the lead of Linda Lovelace, Peter Sarsgaard is confirmed as playing the husband of Linda Lovelace, James Franco will be playing a cameo as Hugh Hefner, Adam Brody will be playing Lovelace's co-star Harry Reems in the controversial film Deep Throat, and Hank Azaria will be playing the director of that very film.
Wait a moment though, Sharon Stone is listed as being in the cast for Lovelace, and yet in November of last year she was said to joining Inferno: A Linda Lovelace Story as playing the mother of Linda Lovelace, and this was according to The Hollywood Reporter. Just to be clear, that is the role that Demi Moore is now playing in the opposing film Lovelace that The Hollywood Reporter say Sharon Stone is a cast member of.
I am confused. We knew that Inferno was having budget issues before they announced that Stone was taking a role in the film, perhaps she's moved to this production for reasons such as budget, or perhaps it's a mistake in the article?
I've re-read it a couple of times to make sure I'm not missing it, but it does seem to suggest that Sharon Stone, once on the Inferno: A Linda Lovelace Story, is now on the opposing film Lovelace, and that seems to be the biographical film racing towards production with a pretty big cast all signed up to go.
