Lindsay Lohan has officially been cut from the upcoming biopic ‘Inferno’ in which she was set to take on the role of porn star Linda Lovelace. The director of the film, Matthew Wilder has explained that Lindsay has been cut from the film, simply because it’s been too hard to move forward with filming because she is currently receiving treatment at the Betty Ford center:

“We have stuck by Lindsay very patiently for a long time with a lot of love and support, ultimately, the impossibility of insuring her — and some other issues — have made it impossible for us to go forward.”

The director has also revealed over the weekend that actress Malin Akerman, who has previously starred in 27 dresses, Watchmen and Couples Retreat is set to take on the role instead. Wilder confirmed the news over facebook, stating:

“We are so honored to have Malin and know that she will kill it.”

Malin is currently filming Wanderlust which also stars Jennifer Aniston and Paul Rudd.
