On Wednesday, Moore dropped out of the film after checking into rehab; then Chloe Sevigny joined the cast, but not as Moore’s replacement; finally, earlier Friday, it seemed that Parker (the Mary-Louise version) had been brought on to officially fill in for Moore — only to be disproved by the latest news, which comes from Lovelace’s directors, Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman. Got all that?!
Parker will play feminist icon Gloria Steinem — as Moore was set to do — in the film, about X-rated star Linda Lovelace. It is still on track for release later this year.
