This has got to burn: A rep for Matthew Wilder — the director of the upcoming Linda Lovelace biopic, Inferno — confirmed with EW that the helmer will be recasting Lindsay Lohan’s role as the Deep Throat actress. Up until this point, Wilder had been supportive of Lohan throughout her legal troubles, insisting that he would wait until she fully completed rehab to start filming the feature. The director, however, has now decided to replace Lohan with another actress, whose identity will be announced on Monday. Said Wilder to E! Online: “We have stuck by Lindsay very patiently for a long time with a lot of love and support … Ultimately, the impossibility of insuring her — and some other issues — have made it impossible for us to go forward.” Lohan is currently at a sober house affiliated with the Betty Ford Center, where she checked into rehab after violating her probation earlier this fall. Stay tuned Monday to hear who will now burn up the screen as the infamous porn star.
