Amanda Seyfried is apparently in talks to play porn star Linda Lovelace in an upcoming biopic.

The In Time star is said to be in the running to portray the infamous 70s adult actress, while Peter Sarsgaard could be playing her husband Chuck Traynor in Lovelace, reported Variety.

Kate Hudson, James Franco and Olivia Wilde had previously been attached to the drama, to be directed by Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman and written by W Merritt Johnson and Andy Bellin.

The story - based on Eric Danville's biography The Complete Linda Lovelace - is the second film about Linda, following Matthew Wilder's Inferno, which initially had Lindsay Lohan in the title role before Malin Akerman took over.

Shooting is set to begin in January 2012.
