Lindsay Lohan shares her excitement about playing porn star Linda Lovelace

The first images of Lindsay Lohan playing porn star Linda Lovelace have emerged. And, thankfully, they’re fairly tasteful.

The actress and unfortunate ankle bracelet sporter signed on earlier this month to play the ‘70s porn star from Deep Throat fame in the new film Inferno. Photographer Tyler Shields posted the previews on his blog, saying “So a few weeks ago I had the pleasure of shooting Lindsay for the film inferno with the director Mathew Wilder and we got some insane shots! This is just a small taste…”

Lindsay also tweeted about the project yesterday, writing “I’m so excited to start this project! It’s such a strong story and Linda fought through so much in her life…” and that the film was “a beautiful story about a woman subjected to a life that she didn’t ask for & her trials & tribulations she went through to stay strong.”

Lovelace gained fame for starring in the hardcore sensation Deep Throat (later immortalized as the codename for the Watergate tipster), but later left the industry claiming she was forced into porn by her husband. She became an active anti-porn crusader until her death at age 52 in 2002 from a car accident.

So, what do you think of the project so far? I’m still not sure about a film where the posters get shot before the movie gets shot. But I am glad to hear that it sounds like the film will focus on more than just the salaciousness of her porn notoriety.
