Malin Akerman to Replace Lindsay Lohan in Porn Biopic

Malin Akerman, 32, will take over the role of Linda Lovelace in Inferno.

Lindsay Lohan, 24, was originally slated to star as the famed porn star. On Saturday, director Matthew Wilder announced the troubled actress would no longer play the role.

"We have stuck by Lindsay very patiently for a long time with a lot of love and support," Wilder said. "Ultimately, the impossibility of insuring her -- and some other issues -- have made it impossible for us to go forward."

Wilder then revealed that Akerman, who previously starred in Couples Retreat, Watchmen, and 27 Dresses, will take on the role. "We are so honored to have Malin and know that she will kill it," he wrote on Facebook.

The actress is now filming Wanderlust with Jennifer Aniston and Paul Rudd.
