While there has been more than a few movies about the porn industry, there's really only "Boogie Nights" and then everything else, but "Howl" directors Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman hope to change that with "Lovelace." A biopic of the infamous porn star, the subject has already spawned a compelling docmentary ("Inside Deep Throat") and their starry production aims to tell the salacious tale of the woman who became famous for a very particular skill.

While there has been more than a few movies about the porn industry, there's really only "Boogie Nights" and then everything else, but "Howl" directors Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman hope to change that with "Lovelace." A biopic of the infamous porn star, the subject has already spawned a compelling docmentary ("Inside Deep Throat") and their starry production aims to tell the salacious tale of the woman who became famous for a very particular skill.

Amanda Seyfried takes on the title role of the "Deep Throat" star who led a tumultuous life, achieving notoreity in the burgeoning XXX biz, before claiming she was abused and coerced by her husband Chuck Traynor (Peter Sarsgaard), and she later became a staunch anti-porn advocate. There are a lot of elements being juggled here -- the hedonistic '70s, feminism, pornography -- so it will be interesting to see how Epstein and Friedman tackle the story. But they won't be lacking in flash, as this new poster for the film uses Seyfriend's half-dressed, come hither stare to grab your attention. The film is without a release date, so we assume this is a sales poster, but nonetheless, it's pretty effective.

Production kicked off in January and wrapped a while ago, so we're guessing a fall festival debut is in the cards. Juno Temple, Sharon Stone, Wes Bentley, Hank Azaria, Bobby Cannavale, Chris Noth, Robert Patrick, Adam Brody, James Franco and Sarah Jessica Parker round out the cast. Check out the full sheet below. [Latino Review]
