When Lindsay Lohan, the original lead in the upcoming biopic Inferno: A Linda Lovelace Story, was sent to rehab, filming stopped. Now, new reports reveal that Heartbreak Kid actress Malin Akerman will replace the young starlet.
“My understanding is that Lindsay was dropped as she’s impossible to insure and the producers loved Malin,” an insider told Deadline Hollywood this weekend.
While Lindsay claims that she quit the film and other say she was dropped, her rep told TMZ that decision was “mutal.”
Matthew Wilder is the writer and director of Inferno: A Linda Lovelace Story, with Malin now starring in the lead role.
