LOS ANGELES — Two independent movie directors have signed on to bring deceased former adult star Linda Lovelace’s real life story to the big screen.

According to Variety Magazine, Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman are on board to direct the indie biopic “Lovelace.”

The story follows the life of porn actress Linda Lovelace, her rise to fame in the 1972 classic “Deep Throat” and how she eventually became anti-porn activist, Linda Marchiano. “Lovelace” also draws from the biography, “The Complete Linda Lovelace.”

“The movie ‘Deep Throat’ will still be in the top 20 of all porno movies. It’s a staple. There’s a spot for ‘Deep Throat' and it has a prominent location in the history of porn,” VCX CEO David Sutton told XBIZ.

The indie biopic will be told from the perspective of three interviewers at various stages throughout her life.

“Linda is this fascinating character who continually reinvented herself and her story based on changing circumstances,” Epstein said. “It’s a story with great dramatic and psychological dimensions.”

Production is set to begin later this year.

After leaving the adult industry, Lovelace became a vocal critic of it, authoring two books, "Ordeal" and "Out of Bondage," claiming she was forced to perform in adult movies. She died in 2002 from injuries sustained in a car crash.
