AMANDA Seyfried is reportedly in talks to play renowned ’70s porn star Linda Lovelace in a new biopic.

Entitled Lovelace, the film would be based on The Complete Linda Lovelace, a biography by Eric Danville that was published in 2001, one year before Lovelace died.

Peter Sarsgaard is also in talks to play her husband, Chuck Traynor.

Ironically, Lovelace is competing with another biopic about the adult film actress who became best known for her performance in Deep Throat.

That project, entitled Inferno: A Linda Lovelace Story, is poised to star Malin Akerman and Matt Dillon.

Seyfried can currently be seen in thriller In Time while her forthcoming projects include comedy The Wedding and the thriller Gone.
