Demi Moore to play Gloria Steinem in 'Lovelace'

We see why Demi Moore says changing her @mrskutcher Twitter handle isn't a priority right now - the 49-year-old actress is focusing on work.

On top of readying a talk show, Moore has also signed on to play Gloria Steinem in a biopic about adult film star Linda Lovelace, Entertainment Weekly reports.

Not to be confused with that other Linda Lovelace biopic "Inferno" - that one stars Malin Akerman - Moore's been cast in the "Lovelace" one. The project also has Adam Brody joining the cast as adult actor Harry Reems, Lovelace's co-star in the infamous 1972 porn flick "Deep Throat."

Amanda Seyfried was previously announced as the titular adult film star, and Peter Sarsgaard portrays Lovelace's husband Chuck Traynor, whom Lovelace said violently forced her into the industry.

According to The Wrap, James Franco will portray Playboy's Hugh Hefner in the project, which also stars Hank Azaria and Sharon Stone.

Directed by Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman (the duo behind "Howl"), "Lovelace" is said to be currently filming.

    I feel so terribly sad for Demi. I thought she had her act together all of these years but apparently not. This woman MUST get a grip on her reality or fate is going to come crashing down on her and in a very big way.

    And Ashton should stay clear of her. If he doesn't, then he will only be enabling her problems ten-fold. He needs to stay far, far away and let her find her own way.

    And she is out. She is no longer in the movie. Too busy sucking on the crack pipe. Sarah Jessica Parker will now be playing Gloria Steinham.

    It's a matter of character. Why did Bruce leave? Why did that kid....Ashton leave? She's probably a self centered, addicted, hateful woman. She's had more hands up her skirt than the muppets. And now that she's 50, unattractive, unable to find meaningful acting roles she's self destructing. She's used to men worshiping her looks. Young men would rather go home and slap the monkey. I wouldn't touch that nasty old wrinkled thing. If you want to see a beautiful woman – take a look at 45 year old Sema Hayak. Full figured. Confident. Happy. Do us all a favor Demi – go away.

    This is a bad joke directed to an amazing woman; Gloria Steinem.

    Moore as Gloria? Terrible choice. She has no credibility to play such an important role. Gloria broke down barriers for equality, all Demi has done is have a bunch of children, and then apparently have a mid life crisis including surgery excessive body image compulsion, etc. If Demi had the brass ones Gloria had, she would not look like a mummy. Maybe if Demi reads about Gloria she will get her self esteem back. Bad bad choice.

    A great friend of mine was going out with a psychotic hose beast. Defying logic itself, he refused to listen to his best friends and family's advice to get as far away from this sucubus as possible. Not only was I forced to spread rumors(and by this I mean facts that I knew were true) about her, but I also wrote a song called Meth Head Girl, that layed it on pretty thick. In the end, he got a restraining order and is on the mend. Check out the song-it's funny as hell:

    Demi is to Glam for Steinem, out-side of the cougar thing, it doesn't work, they need someone simpler and who appears stronger, Demi is just too pretty.

    I love Demi Moore! When will we get romantic 3D movies? You get realy close on the movie in 3D, but romantic movies in 3D..when?
    After i found out we could play 3d movies on iPad, me and my wife have seen a lot of 3D movies on iPad.
    I love 3d movies, especially after I found out I could play 3D movies on my iPad.

    So, "James Franco will portray Playboy's Hugh Hefner". Then it will be a comedy, right...
