Now that Demi Moore is focusing on recovery, the crew of "Lovelace" has made swift work of finding a replacement.
Moore, 49, was supposed to play Gloria Steinem in the project, one of the two biopics in the works about adult actress Linda Lovelace. But amid reports that she'd been rushed to the hospital last week, Moore's rep told CNN that she was pulling out of the project.
"Demi has chosen to seek professional assistance to treat her exhaustion and improve her overall health," her rep said at the time. "She looks forward to getting well and is grateful for the support of her family and friends."
In the meantime, "Sex and the City" star Sarah Jessica Parker will be taking Moore's place in the film, which is being directed by "Howl" duo Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman.
Amanda Seyfried stars in the project as the titular adult film star, with James Franco portraying a younger version of Playboy titan Hugh Hefner and Adam Brody as adult actor Harry Reems. Production on the project is said to have kicked off in late December.
