“We have stuck by Lindsay very patiently for a long time with a lot of love and support,” said the movie’s director, Matthew Wilder. “Ultimately, the impossibility of insuring her – and some other issues – have made it impossible for us to go forward.”
I say this is for the best.
L2 needs a project with which to reintroduce herself to audiences that isn’t quite as loaded (no pun intended) as one about a late porn star most famous for the 1972 hardcore movie Deep Throat, you know what I mean.
I’m not saying she should do a rom-com, but som’in’ fun-edgy could do much more for her than som’in’ edgy-edgy like Inferno at this point.
Wilder is expected to announce a replacement next week.
Update: Watchmen star Malin Akerman has been tapped to take over the Linda Lovelace role.
