Lindsay Lohan has landed the lead role in an independent movie about 1970s porn star Linda Lovelace, one of the film’s producers said.

The 24-year-old actress will play Lovelace, who shot to fame with the landmark 1972 porno movie “Deep Throat,” while Bill Pullman will portray Playboy magazine founder Hugh Hefner in the period drama, producer Wali Razaqi told The Los Angeles Times.

The film, called “Inferno,” will be based on the events of Lovelace’s life and will delve into the “difficult stuff she went through and overcame,” Razaqi said.

Razaqi said he and director Matthew Wilder are confidant the “Mean Girls” star will deliver.

“I would say it’s probably one of the most challenging roles any actor could play – and not because of the sexual content, necessarily – but more because she was so battered and beat up emotionally, that I think it’s gonna take everything Lindsay has to really be able to pull it off,” he told the Times.

“Not that Lindsay’s life is similar in any way – but she’s been through a lot of ups and downs. A lot of times you’re loved and then you’re hated, and I think she can relate to those emotions and feelings.”
