    Olivia Wilde Considers Playing Porn Star Linda Lovelace In Biopic By Rob Epstein & Jeffrey Friedman

    It seems that a film about notorious "Deep Throat" porn star Linda Lovelace is something quite a few people in Hollywood want to get made. There are two currently competing projects: the first is Matthew Wilder's "Inferno" that was famously going to have Lindsay Lohan in the lead role, but now is toplined by Malin Akerman and Matt Dillon.

The other is by “Howl” and "The Celluloid Closet" directors Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman that at one point was courting Kate Hudson and James Franco, a...

    Joe Pesci Files Lawsuit Against Producers Of ‘Gotti’ Over Weight Gain, Role Switch & Reduced Pay

    We've always been a little skeptical about the gestating "Gotti: In the Shadow of My Father" if only because the producers, Fiore Films, have somewhat improbably lined up a cast that includes John Travolta, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci despite the fact their only other produced film to date is this. Where were they getting the kind of scratch to get this big stars into play? How would the filmmakers whose only movie thus far is straight-to-video National Lampoon's comedy manage to make something solid of a film about one of the most notorious gangsters of our generation? Why did they use Lindsay Lohan to drum up press for the film by pretending th...
