NEW YORK (CBS) Lindsay Lohan has lost the lead role in the Linda Lovelace biopic "Inferno."
The film's director Matthew Wilder, who in the summer said he hadto replace the 24-year-old embattled star, announced that he has brought on someone else to play the adult film icon.
"We are casting Malin Akerman for the role of Linda Lovelace," Wilder said to E! News. "We are currently in negotiations and working out the legalities of bringing her on board."
On Saturday, Wilder revealed his plans to part ways with Lohan, who is currentlyuntil Jan. 3 at the Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage, Calif. He said the decision to replace the "Mean Girls" star was the result of "the impossibility of insuring" Lohan and "some other issues."
Now with Ackerman on board, Wilder said the film will get back in track with plans to begin shooting in the first quarter of 2011.
