Amanda Seyfried is getting more company in the pornstar biopic Lovelace, with Demi Moore joining the cast to play feminist icon Gloria Steinem and Adam Brody costarring as the mustachioed X-rated actor Harry Reems.

The movie, which began shooting in December, chronicles the provocative, tragic, and controversial life of one Linda Boreman, who — under the name Linda Lovelace — became one of the world’s first mainstream, marquee stars of adult entertainment with 1972’s Deep Throat, which costarred Reems. Claiming she had been violently forced into sex work by her husband, Chuck Traynor (played in the film by Peter Sarsgaard), she later denounced her films, and became a strident antiporn activist. Boreman died in 2002 after a car accident.

Eric Roberts is another new cast member, playing lie-detector expert Nat Laurendi. He was brought in to question Lovelace as a fact-checker for her book Ordeal. The transcript of his questions is harrowing reading, and could easily serve as the framework for a story about her life.

Sharon Stone, Juno Temple, and Wes Bentley also costar in the movie alongside Hank Azaria, Robert Patrick, Bobby Cannavale, and Chris Noth. Lovelace is being directed by Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman, best known for another counter-culture movie, the Allen Ginsberg film Howl.

Meanwhile, a rival Lovelace biopic titled Inferno is also in the works, starring Malin Ackerman as the infamous porn actress.
