Lindsay Lohan has landed the lead role in an independent movie about 1970s porn star Linda Lovelace, the Los Angeles Times is reporting.
The 24-year-old actress will play Lovelace, who shot to fame with the landmark 1972 porno movie "Deep Throat," while Bill Pullman will portray Playboy magazine founder Hugh Hefner in the period drama, producer Wali Razaqi told the paper.
The film, called "Inferno," will be based on the events of Lovelace's life and will delve into the "difficult stuff she went through and overcame," Razaqi said.
Lovelace, whose real name was Linda Susan Boreman, starred in several adult films before gaining stardom with the runaway hit "Deep Throat," one of the first porn movies to reach into mainstream culture.
Boreman died in 2002 after a car crash in Denver.
Lohan's recent activities included spending 7 hours at a lawyer's office in Venice, Ca. yesterday, according to tmz.com.
Lohan, who is being sued over a wild drunken car ride back in 2007, was accompanied by her mother Dina Lohan - and the paparazzi, of course.
