If there’s one thing that the two competing Snow White movies have taught us, it’s that if you put Ian McShane in something, we’ll be interested in it. But if there’s another thing we’ve learned, it’s that if an idea is good enough for one movie studio, it’s good enough for two, as evidenced by the two, count’em two, biopics currently ramping up about Linda Lovelace, one of which has just cast Sharon Stone as the porn star’s mother.
Collider reports that the “Basic Instinct” star, who is no stranger to harsh dramatic roles, will play Lovelace’s mother in “Inferno: A Linda Lovelace Story.” Lindsay Lohan had been previously cast to play Lovelace, but now the Matthew Wilder-directed film now boasts Malin Akerman in the lead role.
The other biopic about Lovelace’s life is called, simply, “Lovelace” and will likely star Amanda Seyfried as the title character, with Peter Sarsgaard in negotiations to play Lovelace’s abusive pornographer husband Chuck Traynor. Seyfried and Sarsgaard would replace the previously cast Kate Hudson and James Franco.
