It’s a McInferno for Rose

Following the success of her latest comedy The House Bunny, Anna Faris recently decided to drop out of the more serious-minded Inferno, a biopic of porn star Linda Lovelace, and apparently Rose McGowan (Grindhouse) is now set to take her place. Wikipedia says:

Linda Susan Boreman (January 10, 1949 – April 22, 2002), better known by her stage name, “Linda Lovelace,” was a porn actress who was famous for her performance of deep throat fellatio in the enormously successful 1972 hardcore porn film Deep Throat. She later denounced her pornography career, claimed that she had been forced into it by her sadistic first husband and for a while became a spokeswoman for the anti-pornography movement.

The movie will mark the second feature for writer/director Matthew Wilder after this year’s William J. Frick biopic Your Name Here, and is set for release sometime in 2009. Who’s the better potential porn star, Faris or McGowan? I don’t like McGowan but she seems a better fit to me.
