Amanda Seyfried Swallows Her Pride As "Lovelace"

Sneak Peek new images of actors Amanda Seyfried as 'Linda Lovelace' and James Franco as 'Hugh Hefner', on the Los Angeles set of the currently shooting bio-pic "Lovelace".

Although her fans may find it hard to swallow, Seyfried ("Mama Mia !"), stars as adult film actress 'Linda Lovelace'.

The real Linda Lovelace starred in the 1972 X-rated feature "Deep Thoat", before becoming an anti-pornography advocate.

In the film, Peter Sarsgaard plays Lovelace's husband, 'Chuck Traynor'.

Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman ("The Celluloid Closet") direct a screenplay by W. Merritt Johnson and Andy Bellin, adapting the biography "The Complete Linda Lovelace," by author Eric Danville.

Producers are Avi Lerner, Heidi Jo Markel and Laura Rister.

Production started January 2012.

In other "Linda Lovelace" news, writer/director Matthew Wilder continues developing his "Ordeal" feature project, based on Lovelace's autobiography, with Malin Akerman ("Watchmen") attached to star.
