Back in June, while talking about Anna Faris' new Playboy film, our Erik Davis said: "Calm down there guys, her career hasn't tanked enough for Anna Faris to begin entertaining the same ideas you were entertaining after reading the title of this post." Well, now she is -- kind of. MTV has reported that the actress is in a rush to get a feature on Linda Lovelace in production, before the looming strike. For the handful of you that don't know -- Lovelace is the gal behind the epic porn film Deep Throat.

As if Faris playing a porn star, an uber famous one at that, wasn't enough -- she says: "It's a really deep, dark drama -- and it would be cool for me to do." The film is called Inferno, she's putting it together "alongside a first-time filmmaker," and she says that Matthew Wilder will direct it. No other big names have been added to the cast, but Faris says that they are currently struggling to cast the role of Lovelace's manager and husband, Chuck Traynor.

After playing a woman whose clitoris is in her throat, and becoming world-famous, Lovelace became an anti-porn activist. But her life was a heck of a lot more than that role. In the biz, she was involved in bestiality and pretty hardcore sex, and she claimed that her first husband, Traynor, forced her into porn at gunpoint (similar to how he acted with second wife, porn star Marilyn Chambers)*. With all this in mind, who would have ever guessed that Anna Faris would be the actress to take it on? Can you see her in the role?

*Proof that even writing about porn rots the brain: Mixing up the names Boreman and Traynor. Thanks to those who spotted that!
