It was reported by various sources over the weekend that Lindsay Lohan had been dropped from upcoming biopic Inferno.

Deadline have now confirmed this story, while revealing that Malin Akerman (Watchmen) has been hired to replace Lohan as porn actress Linda Lovelace.

Inferno will be directed by Matthew Wilder (Your Name Is Here) and is loosely based on Lovelace’s original autobiography.

Production is expected to commence in the new year.

Akerman will next be seen in David Wain’s Wanderlust, alongside Jennifer Aniston and Paul Rudd.
