Mamma Mia! star Amanda Seyfried has replaced Kate Hudson to portray the adult actress-turned-porn activist in the forthcoming project, opposite Peter Sarsgaard as Lovelace's husband Chuck Traynor.

Oscar nominee Franco was previously linked to the role of Traynor, but now he's being touted to take on a smaller part as the Playboy magazine founder, reports trade paper Daily Variety.

The Smurfs star Hank Azaria has joined the cast as Jerry Damiano, the director of hit porn film Deep Throat.
