Directors Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman will show the work of 'Deep Throat' porn icon Linda Lovelace on the big screen.

Only this time, it'll be in biopic form.

According to Variety, the pair will direct 'Lovelace,' a look at the controversial and tragic life of Lovelace (a.k.a Linda Boreman), who died in a car accident in 2002 after three decades as sex symbol, activist and occasional punchline.

The film will be based on Eric Danville's 2001 biography 'The Complete Linda Lovelace', which traces Boreman's transition from the world's first mainstream, adult film star to a feminist voice for the anti-porn movement.

This isn't Friedman's and Epstein's first attempt at bringing a legend of pop culture back into cinema. Their most recent film, 'Howl,' which stars James Franco as famous beat poet Allen Ginsberg, premieres at Sundance this week. Yet while the worlds of poetry and porn don't seem have much in common, Friedman sees Boreman as a compelling character regardless of her profession.

"Linda is this fascinating character who continually reinvented herself and her story based on changing circumstances," Epstein told Variety. "It's a story with great dramatic and psychological dimensions."

No word yet who could play Boreman/Lovelace, but the project aims to begin filming later this year.
