Inside Move: Love digs ‘Deep’

Musician cast as Lovelace in new biopic

HOLLYWOOD — There’s more inside the original “Deep Throat.”

Courtney Love is attached to star as Linda Lovelace in a biopic tentatively titled “Lovelace.” Project is being developed through Jason Blum’s Blumhouse Prods., with Merritt Johnson writing the script.

Pic will trace Lovelace’s life from 17 until she died in 2002 at 53.

Producing with Blum and Love is her manager, Jason Weinberg, a partner at Untitled Entertainment.

“Inside Deep Throat” producer Brian Grazer originally wanted to produce a Lovelace biopic. He optioned her autobiography, “Ordeal,” but eventually rejected that approach as too depressing. Directed by Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato, “Inside Deep Throat” has earned just under $600,00 since its release Feb. 11.

Although Love has been best known of late for her court appearances, she received a Golden Globe nom in 1996 for Milos Forman’s “The People vs. Larry Flynt” and starred opposite Jim Carrey in Forman’s “Man on the Moon.” She stars in “Julie Johnson” alongside Lili Taylor and Mischa Barton. That pic will be released through Regent Releasing May 25.

Blum has a first-look deal with HBO Films. He’s currently in post on the tentatively titled “The Darwin Awards,” starring Winona Ryder and Joseph Fiennes. He produced “Hysterical Blindness” and the upcoming “The Fever,” both for HBO.
