Remember when everyone— including your mom, best friend, guitar teacher, bus driver, mailman and butcher— was devouring "The Da Vinci Code"? It's hard to remember that a book that corny and poorly written somehow became a phenomenon (oh wait, "Fifty Shades Of Grey"...) but not only was a pop culture moment, it spawned the hit movie that made a tidy $758 million worldwide. But by time the followup "Angels & Demons" arrived three years later, interest had cooled, and it only collected $458 million. Still, $458 million is $458 million and it looks like Sony wants to scrape up whatever Dan Brown dollars are left.

Usually, it's only big budget blockbusters that court the press while the cameras are rolling on their films as part of a carefully scaled marketing campaign, but rarely does that extend to indies, mostly because the budgets and time simply don't allow for it. But that certainly isn't the case with "Lovelace," the hotly buzzed biopic of infamous porn star Linda Lovelace that finds Amanda Seyfriend taking on the lead role.

If 2012 is the battle of the Snow White movies, it looks like 2013 may be the smuttier war between porn biopics of the infamous Linda Lovelace. Hot on the heels of "Lovelace" shoring up their cast with Demi Moore and Adam Brody, "Inferno" has fired back with casting of its own.

No, this isn't Matthew Wilder‘s “Inferno” that was famously going to have Lindsay Lohan in the lead role, but now is toplined by Malin Akerman and Matt Dillon. Instead, this is the competing project by “Howl” and “The Celluloid Closet” directors Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman that at one point was courting Kate Hudson and James Franco (who've both moved on), and had Olivia Wilde taking a look during the summer. It has now cast up, and the talent on board is pretty strong.

Blowjobs: the new being-the-author-of-"In Cold Blood." Last time we had two dueling biographical accounts of a figure's life, we had the two Truman Capote pictures, "Capote" and "Infamous." This time, the subject is Linda Lovelace, the tragic star of the most successful pornographic film of all time, "Deep Throat," who then went on to become an outspoken anti-porn activist. Lovelace was the subject of the 2005 documentary, "Inside Deep Throat," but now a pair of biopics are in the works, with some relatively big names attracted.

The last major piece of the casting puzzle of "Rock of Ages" seems to have been filled, and Adam Shankman has assembled a pretty motley bunch for his frizzy haired musical.

Yes, its yet another project linked to James Franco who seems to be spending his time between classes, just calling up producers in Hollywood and chatting with them about projects that pique his curiosity.

Producers Insist Lohan Was Fired And Didn't QuitThe long, slow painful deconstruction of Lindsay Lohan's career continues this week and plunges even deeper into the slo-mo trainwreck trajectory it has been moving along for what seems like the last two years. We're frankly surprised the starlet is still alive and as much as we feel bad for any human being obviously struggling so much, it seems like the gossip-star turned sublebrity has been her own worst enemy all along.
