Almost Famous star Hudson will begin shooting her film later this year (11), while Akerman is near completion on her rival movie Inferno: A Linda Lovelace Story, which was originally due to feature Lindsay Lohan.
Now the Tron: Legacy beauty has voiced her interest in playing the troubled porn legend onscreen and reveals she’s in talks to lead the cast in a third biopic, titled Lovelace.
She tells Eonline.com, “It would be a tremendous honour. It’s such a cool role. She was a fascinating woman – with where she came from to Deep Throat to then working with (political activist) Gloria Steinem and (filmmaker/writer) Nora Ephron. It’s really fascinating.”
But Wilde insists she’s yet to make a decision about the job.
She adds, “I’m being very careful about my next project since I’m now in a position where I can be really picky – thank God, finally.”
Lovelace is a joint project from Oscar-winning directors Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman.
