Can one troubled movie star have insight into another? Producers of an upcoming film about the 1970s porn scene hope so – reportedly signing up Lindsay Lohan to play famed adult star Linda Lovelace.

“We’ve all thought that Lindsay would be a great choice for a while now, and we’re all convinced that she is going to do it,” says Inferno producer Wali Razaqi, who confirmed the casting choice to the Los Angeles Times. “For at least a year, the director [Matthew Wilder] and I have gone back and forth imagining how awesome of a performance she could give if she was in the movie.”
