Anna FrielApparently, people like porn. That's what the movies are telling us anyway. Aside from the two Linda Lovelace biopics in development, there is also a project in the works telling the story of Paul Raymond, New York-based pornography publisher and strip club owner. The film is called King of Soho, and stars the always-on Steve Coogan as the central figure. Variety reports that the movie has roped in three young actresses from the United Kingdom to join the cast: Imogen Poots, Anna Friel and Tamsin Egerton.

Imogen Poots' name might be the most familiar, thanks partially to its whimsical quality. Her recent credits include Fright Night and Jane Eyre. Anna Friel starred alongside Bradley Cooper in last year's Limitless. Finally, Tamsin Egerton is associated mostly with British pictures like 2011's Chalet Girl.

King of Soho will take a comical and dramatic look at Paul Raymond's life and work. The film is being directed by Michael Winterbottom (Coogan-starrer 24 Hour Party People).
