James210I might as well run the headline “James Franco To Be In Everything” at the rate this guy’s clocking up work. He’s already down for William Faulkner’s As I Lay Dying and rumoured for Cormac McCarthy’s Blood Meridian and last week he was interested in serial killer biopic The Night Stalker.

This week, he’s set his sights on Lovelace, the biopic of porn actress Linda Lovelace which Howl directors Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman are working on. It’s been in the work for sometimes but now they’ve got Kate Hudson lined up for the lead role, the ball seems to be moving. Adding the now Oscar-nominated actor who would play Lovelace’s husband Chuck Traynor, to the cast list would give the film a significant boost.

It’ll be based on Eric Danville’s Book The Complete Linda Lovelace and will chart her relationship with Traynor which was rocky to say the least. She made the infamous Deep Throat when he was working as a pornographer and years after she quite the business she accused him or forcing her into porn.

It’s not the only film about Lovelace that’s on the market. Inferno has been struggling for quite sometime (mainly on account of the reliability of Lindsay Lohan) but that’s finally nabbed a leading lady in the shape of Malin Akerman.

But Deadline are reporting that both films are struggling to find funding, it’s a controversial subject after all. Franco certainly wouldn’t do their prospects any harm…

StumbleUpon It!
