Anna Faris to Star in Linda Lovelace Deep Throat Biopic

And a million fanboys' hearts explode in unison.

After a string of comedic roles in films such as Just Friends and the Scary Movie series, Anna Faris is ready to get deep. Deep Throat, that is.

No, she isn’t remaking the porn classic — but according to MTV Movies, she is gearing up to portray its star, Linda Lovelace, in a Lovelace biopic called Inferno. Matthew Wilder has already been attached to direct. From the article:

Lovelace became a household name after “Deep Throat” became a pop-culture phenomenon that had stars like Johnny Carson and Jack Nicholson attending showings. Porn became chic, and the film has to date grossed more than $600 million worldwide (some believe it is still be the most profitable movie ever made).

In the years that followed, however, Lovelace reinvented herself as an anti-porn crusader, toiled in poverty and insisted that she had a gun held to her head off-camera during those infamous “Throat” scenes, blaming the experience largely on her manager/husband Chuck Traynor.

Faris describes Inferno as “a really deep, dark drama” and “a challenge, definitely,” and hopes to have the project wrapped before next year’s strike.
