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.

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.

The New York Times are the latest to get to chat with the star and directors Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman. “This film is really, I feel, the beginning of something else for me,” Seyfried told the paper, who note that the ambitions of the film are to paint a porn portrait not unlike Paul Thomas Anderson's "Boogie Nights." Friedman notes that the scope and scale of the film, “...bridges the period from the sexual revolution to feminism, and she was a key figure in both of those moments.” 

However, as we all know, the film is running against "Inferno," another Lovelace biopic with Matthew Wilder at the helm, and Malin Akerman in the lead role. Interestingly, Heidi Jo Markel was a producer on "Inferno" before moving over to "Lovelace" instead noting that while that film had "a good script...it was so dark and oppressive.” Indeed, early reports on "Inferno" (back when Lindsay Lohan was attached) was that the Black List script was very graphic with "child abuse, three orgasms, two beatings, intense humiliation and a bloody car crash" all happening in the first thirty-two pages.

But Wilder scoffs saying, “I think it is quite a wonderful piece of hyperbole to be told your film is too dark to be a movie.”

At any rate Lovelace's story is fascinating enough for two movies, and both boast intriguing casts. "Lovelace" is already rolling in front of cameras, with "Inferno" set to shoot soon. Pics below.
