In 1996 Wes Craven gave us one of the greatest horror satires of all time with Scream. It was hip and scary and filled with big names. Scream helped shape my formative years, giving me a real appreciation for the genre.
In 2001, the cult comedy to top all cult comedies, Wet Hot American Summer, was released to rather negative reviews (obviously). Garnering an A from Entertainment Weekly, but low markings from pretty much everywhere else, the film was discarded into oblivion after its release, only to resurface as a God of the cult world a few years later. Director and co-writer David Wain had since then made a couple of movies including The Ten and the critical and commercial success, Role Models, which definitely took a turn for the subdued in the “Wain humor” category.
The movie Lovelace is a biopic about 70s porn actress Linda Boreman, or Linda Lovelace. It will tell the story of how Lovelace was abused by the porn industry, and how her husband pushed her into doing pornography. There is no release date yet, so here’s all of the most up-to-date information we have…
First and foremost, Amanda Seyfried will be playing the porn star, meaning… naked Seyfried! E! released news in January that the In Time actress will be doing nude scenes.
Another recent fact, Demi Moore was set to play feminist Gloria Steinem, but had to drop out due to “exhaustion”. She was recently rushed to the emergency room. I am sure you have all heard the 911 call that her friend made:
Moore will be replaced by Sarah Jessica Parker, according to IMDB.
The cast is full of pretty impressive names:
James Franco – as – Hugh Hefner
Wes Bentley (also will star in Gone with Seyfried)- as – Larry Marchiano
Sharon Stone – as – Dorothy Boreman
Peter Sarsgaard – as – Chuck Traynor
Hank Azaria – as – Jerry Damino

Also, Lindsay Lohan was supposed to play Linda Lovelace in a different movie about her life called Inferno.
Unfortunately, she had to get her legal things in order… and then she did Playboy. Anyway, I am happy about this: Malin Akerman (Watchmen) will be replacing her! I am not sure why there needs to be two Linda Lovelace movies out there, but there will be, come 2013!
