Director Matthew Wilder and the producers of Inferno, the Linda Lovelace biopic, have officially dropped Lindsay Lohan from the film.
In a recent statement to the LA Times, Wilder confirmed that the decision to recast the film had been made and denied an earlier report from TMZ that Lohan had quit the project.
He did not go into specific details about the discrepancy, but he stated that more details will be released on Monday about why she was let go and who will be replacing her.
In July, Wilder had said that he was going to keep Lohan. "Not moving on, not recasting, not under any circumstances." In October, though, frustrations began to flare about her schedule and plans were made for the film to begin shooting in January after Lohan was done at the Betty Ford Center.
This news means that the actress currently has no definite job prospects lined up. Over the summer filmmakers behind a Willie Nelson-produced adventure comedy called The Dry Gulch Kid had expressed interest in Lohan. They could not be reached for comment Saturday.
Now Wilder and the producers are left with the dilemma of finding the right actor willing to take on the role which is said to be very risqué. Who would you like to see play Linda Lovelace?
