James Franco and Kate Hudson to Star in Lovelace About Porn Star Linda Lovelace

Kate Hudson and James Franco Enlist in the Pornography Biz

Malin Akerman is already bringing Linda Lovelace to the big screen, but Kate Hudson may soon be putting her own spin on the adult film star. Hudson has been offered the title role in Lovelace — an adaptation of the book The Complete Linda Lovelace — while James Franco is in discussions to play Lovelace's husband, pornographer Chuck Traynor. The couple married when Lovelace starred in the infamous film Deep Throat, but later, she accused Traynor of bullying her into pornography by beating her and even using hypnotism.

I'm having a hard time picturing bubbly Hudson in darker material (especially when we're used to seeing her in romantic comedies like this). As for Franco, between his award hosting duties and the other films he has lined up, I'm not exactly sure how the Oscar nominee is going to fit another project on his plate. But to his credit, at least we know he looks good rocking a porn 'stache. What say you? Can you picture Franco and Hudson in these roles?
