Eclecticâ€™s Heidi Jo Markel, Animus Filmsâ€™ Jim Young and Untitledâ€™s Laura Rister and Jason Weinberg are producing. Millenniumâ€™s Avi Lerner is exec producing. Actors previously attached to star were James Franco, who starred in Epstein and Friedmanâ€™s Howl, and Kate Hudson before she became pregnant. Filming on Lovelace is expected to start in January.
There is another Linda Lovelace movie being filmed too, with Malin Akerman.
