Duo sign on to Seyfried starrer
Cory Hardrict and Debi Mazar (“Goodfellas”) have joined the ensemble cast of indie drama “Lovelace.”Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman are directing the pic, which stars Amanda Seyfried as Linda Boreman, who, as Linda Lovelace, became the world’s first erotic superstar due to the success of “Deep Throat.” Peter Sarsgaard and Sharon Stone co-star alongside Juno Temple, Wes Bentley, Hank Azaria, Bobby Cannavale, Chris Noth, Robert Patrick, Demi Moore and James Franco. Hardrict will play DJ Frankie Crocker, while Mazar will play Dolly Sharp, Linda’s co-star in “Deep Throat.” “Lovelace” is a Millennium Films production that will be produced by Heidi Jo Markel for Eclectic Pictures, Laura Rister and Jason Weinberg for Untitled Entertainment and Jim Young for Animus Films. Exec producers include Boaz Davidson, Danny Dimbort, Mark Gill, W. Merritt Johnson, Avi Lerner, Trevor Short and John Thompson for Nu Image/Millennium Films. Production on the Andy Bellin-scripted pic is under way in Los Angeles, and the film is being made with the co-operation of Lovelace’s estate. Hardrict’s feature career has been heating up of late, with Summit’s zombie pic “Warm Bodies” on the horizon. Thesp, who recently appeared in “Battle Los Angeles” and Clint Eastwood’s “Gran Torino,” next stars in WWE Studios’ “The Day.” He’s repped by APA and Inspire Entertainment, while WME reps Mazar.
