Amanda Seyfried has covered quite a few film genres since starting her motion picture career playing a mouse (DUH) in Mean Girls. The 27-year-old actress has appeared in two beloved musicals (Mamma Mia & Les Miserables), starred in a fairytale adaptation (Red Riding Hood), romance dramas (Dear John) and futuristic thrillers (In Time). Now she’s dabbling in the world of porn. The first trailer for her turn as the infamous porn star Linda Lovelace has debuted.
Lovelace first premiered at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. It’s scheduled to hit theaters in limited release on August 9. The biographical film will cover the Deep Throat actress’ life from when she was 20 to 32-years-old. Watch as Linda Boreman becomes the symbol of sexual freedom and uninhibited hedonism in the 70s and later transforms into an outspoken anti-porn activist a decade after that film made her a star.
Directed by Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman, Lovelace boasts an impressive cast including Peter Sarsgaard, Hank Azaria, Wes Bentley, Adam Brody, Bobby Cannavale, James Franco, Debi Mazar, Chris Noth, Robert Patrick, Eric Roberts, Chloe Sevigny, Sharon Stone, and Juno Temple. Sarah Jessica Parker was also supposed to be in the film, but her part was cut out during the final editing process. Check out the trailer below.
