Sarah Jessica Parker in Lovelace

Sarah Jessica Parker will replace Demi Moore in a key role in the porn star biopic Lovelace, the filmmakers confirmed today.

Sarah Jessica ParkerA lost opportunity for Demi Moore translates to a new paycheck for another actress. Filmmakers Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman told Entertainment Weekly that Sarah Jessica Parker is taking over for Moore in the movie Lovelace.

Moore had been set to portray feminist icon Gloria Steinem in the biopic of the life of Deep Throat porn star Linda Lovelace, but dropped out earlier this week after she was hospitalized for what her rep called "exhaustion."

Since then Moore has been plagued by rumors of drug use and anorexia.

The filmmakers had previously confirmed Moore's casting on Jan. 2, 2012, but she had not begun filming yet. However, they needed a replacement quickly, and Parker is scheduled to begin shooting on Monday.

In a role originally slated for Lindsay Lohan, Amanda Seyfried will play Linda Lovelace, a porn star who became famous for her starring role in the cult adult film Deep Throat. Lovelace later claimed she had been forced into her porn career by her first husband Chuck Traynor, who she alleged also pushed her into prostitution.

The porn actress turned her back on the industry in 1980 when she joined the anti-pornography movement, supported by feminist leaders Gloria Steinem, Andrea Dworkin, Catherine MacKinnon and the group Women Against Pornography.

In her book The Other Hollywood, Lovelace later said she felt used by the feminist movement. "Between Andrea Dworkin and Kitty MacKinnon, they've written so many books, and they mention my name and all that, but financially they've never helped me out," she wrote. "They made a few bucks off me, just like everybody else."

Linda Lovelace died in 2002 from injuries suffered in a car accident and remained a polarizing figure up to her death, with some -- including several co-stars -- claiming her allegations of being forced into porn were fake and she loved every minute of it. You can judge for yourself when Lovelace is released later this year.
