Malin Akerman Replaces Lindsay Lohan as Porn Star Linda Lovelace

If you thought it was hard to get a porn movie in theaters nowadays, sheesh, try getting a movie about a famous porn actress made. Writer/director Matthew Wilder’s “Inferno: A Linda Lovelace Story” has been up and down and dead and back for a while now, but now it looks like it may be up and running again, with news that Malin Akerman has replaced habitual rehabber Lindsay Lohan (left, doing what Lilo does best) in the title role, whose most famous role was the porn movie “Deep Throat” in 1972. (She followed that role up with “Depp Throat II” in 1974 and “Linda Lovelace for President” in 1975.)

The reason for dumping Lohan? As simple as bucks: the producers apparently couldn’t find anyone willing to insure the partying booze hound, so Akerman has taken over the role. This, despite earlier assurances by Wilder that they would wait out Lohan’s current problems. Not so much, apparently.

Now I’m a fan of Akerman and all (after “Watchmen”, what warm-blooded male isn’t?), but the idea of a self-destructing Lindsay Lohan in the role of a self-destructing porn queen would have been perfect, kinda like art imitating life and all that stuff.

Besides “Inferno”, Malin Akerman will also be in the CIA actioner “The Numbers Station” with Ethan Hawke.
