Demi Moore Chloe Sevigny Javier Bardem

With all the buzz going on up in Park City, it's easy to forget that stuff is still happening in good ol' Hollywood, and the past day or so has brought some changes to some brewing films.

First up, "Lovelace," which is already rolling in front of cameras, has undergone a quick casting change. Demi Moore, originally slated to make an appearance as feminist Gloria Steinem, has dropped out (after being rushed to hospital while at Sundance, with rumors following she's been suffering from anorexia), and Chloë Sevigny has stepped in. However, it's not immediately clear if she's taking over the Steinem role or if the part has been rewritten as a result (our guess is the latter). At any rate, she's playing an unnamed "feminist journalist" who is on assignment for a men's magazine to find out who the real Linda Lovelace is, and we don't imagine it'll be a big role.

This is the movie that has Amanda Seyfried in the lead with Peter Sarsgaard as her skeevy husband, with a supporting cast that includes Juno Temple, Sharon Stone, Wes Bentley, Hank Azaria, Bobby Cannavale, Chris Noth, Robert Patrick, Adam Brody and a cameo from James Franco as Hugh Hefner. "Howl" directors Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman are at the helm.

Meanwhile, Javier Bardem has said exited "Despicable Me 2" after being touted in the fall as the voice of the villain. He was in talks to play the creatively named El Macho. But talks haven't worked out, so the part is now open. But we'll get plenty of baddie Bardem when he squares off against James Bond in "Skyfall" this fall. [EW/Variety/THR]
