Matt Dillon and Diane Lane as J.C. Cullen and Lorry Dane in "The Big Town" (1987)
"Screen Daily is reporting that Matt Dillon has joined Inferno: A Linda Lovelace Story, in the role of Chuck Traynor. The film is a biopic that centres on Linda Lovelace, the star of one of the most successful porn films of all time, Deep Throat. She was also the subject of the interesting 2005 documentary Inside Deep Throat.
Lindsay Lohan was supposed to play Lovelace in Inferno but was fired and replaced by Watchmen‘s Malin Akerman.
The film will start shooting in a few months (July 17th) and will be in direct competition with another Lovelace biopic which is untitled but has Howl directors Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman attached and Kate Hudson set to star as Lovelace.
James Franco is said to be circling the Chuck Traynor role in the film.
Inferno: A Linda Lovelace Story is based on the novel Ordeal: The Truth Behind Deep Throat, An Autobiography". Source: wegotthiscovered.com
