Lindsay LohanIt's being rumoured across the internet that troubled actress Lindsay Lohan could be set to play porn legend Linda Lovelace in a new film. Directed by Matthew Wilder (who, according to IMDb, hasn't directed anything before), Inferno will tell the story of Lovelace's life, going from a strict Roman Catholic upbringing to become the star of the most profitable porn film of all time, Deep Throat.

Although no official news has come out, the film's producer, Wali Razaqi, in an interview with the LA Times said "We've all thought that Lindsay would be a great choice for a while now, and we're all convinced that she is going to do it. For at least a year, the director and I have gone back and forth imagining how awesome of a performance she could give if she was in the movie." He also added that the official announcement would be given at the Cannes Film Festival.

If it is to happen, then it's certainly an emotionally-charged and hefty role for the Mean Girls star to pull off. Lovelace (born Linda Susan Boreman) had to give a child up for adoption at the age of 20, married Chuck Traynor who viciously beat her and forced her into pornographic movies (including ones featuring bestiality), spent years addicited to cocaine, contracted hepatitis, became an anti-porn campaigner and died in a fatal car crash in 2002.

Regarding the role in Deep Throat that made her famous, Lovelace later claimed "When you see Deep Throat you are watching me being raped. It is a crime that movie is still showing; there was a gun to my head the entire time."
