"James Franco and Hugh Hefner"James Franco is allegedly in negotiations to star as Hugh Hefner in the forthcoming Linda Lovelace biopic flick ‘Lovelace’.

The ‘127 Hours’ star James Franco could possibly play a cameo in the upcoming biopic movie based on the life story of adult star Linda Lovelace. He is allegedly in talks to play the character of Playboy Kingpin Hugh Hefner in the movie. If the deal gets locked then he would don the role of Playboy magazine that tells about the story of the late iconic star. He is also reportedly expected to film his part for a single day.

As per the reports, his scene in the movie would be which he welcomes Lovelace and her husband Chuck Traynor, to the Playboy Mansion for a screening of their infamous film ‘Deep Throat’. The 33-year-old ‘Rise of the Planet of the Apes’ actor, was actually offered to play the character of male lead of the movie, Chuck Traynor. However, the character will be now played by Peter Skarsgard. If he gets confirmed, he would reunite with the directors Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman, who worked together for ‘Howl’ in the year 2010.

The biopic flick ‘Lovelace’ has been adapted from ‘The Complete Linda Lovelace’ written by Eric Danville, a biography published in the year 2001, just a year before the iconic adult actress left the world. Lovelace was just a school girl in Florida, before she met and married Traynor, who later turned her into world famous adult star. She is known for her character in ‘Deep Throat’ in 1972, which was one of the highest independent grossing movies of all times.

Amanda Seyfried has been set to tackle the role of Lovelace, who will be joined by the star including Hank Azaria as ‘Deep Throat’ director Jerry Damiano, Bobby Cannavale and Chris Noth as financial bankers Butchie Peraino and Anthony Romano and Robert Patrick as John Boreman, the father of Lovelace who gets ashamed of his daughter’s fame. Sharone Stone plays the role of Lovelace’s mother, while Juno Temple dons the character of her best friend and Wes Bentley as her second husband. The production of the movie ‘Lovelace’ has been scheduled to start on Tuesday, December 20, 2011 in Los Angeles.
