The 'Grindhouse' actress has been reported to take the vacant role as Linda Lovelace left by Anna Faris.
Rose McGowan, the star of "Grindhouse", may be seen as porn queen soon. Reports claim that she is considering to join the cast of "Inferno", a biopic movie about the legendary "Deep Throat" star Linda Lovelace. It is said that McGowan is encouraged to portray Lovelace in the flick because she is touched by Lovelace's tragic life.
If McGowan indeed stars in "Inferno", she will replace Anna Faris for the Lovelace's role. Faris was attached to Lovelace part before she withdrew from the film. Making a statement related to her withdrawal back in September, she admitted that the role as the iconic porn actress is too dramatic and heavy for her at this stage.
About the movie, FOX News has already cast Bill Pullman as Hugh Hefner, and John Lucas as Chuck Traynor, Linda's husband, who forced her into porn. The helmer of the flick is Matthew Wilder who will direct for the first time using his own script.
"Inferno", which is produced by Brian Grazer, is based on Lovelace's biopic which covers her ups-and-downs in life. Lovelace turned to be feminist after starring in 1974 "Deep Throat". She joined Andrea Dworkin and Catharine MacKinnon, and gave her testimony in front of Attorney General Ed Meese's Commission on Pornography in 1986. She died on April 22, 2002 because of severe injuries she suffered from a car accident.
