Inferno Director Pleased to Be Free of the Lindsay Lohan Situation

“I feel like 16 tons of weight are off my mind not having to deal with the situation,” director Matthew Wilder said of his recent decision to replace the actress in the biopic Inferno.

Lohan was set to play porn star Linda Lovelace, but was replaced following her extended stay at the Betty Ford Center. Malin Akerman will play the role instead, and Wilder is pleased with the call.

“I love working with her,” he said of Akerman. “She is sensitive and hard-working and I think it’s a great decision for our project.”

“We have not heard anything from Lindsay and her camp recently but we wish her and them well,” Wilder told Radar Online. “I still think she has a great talent.”

Inferno will begin filming in February, and Wilder says the cast and crew are “really looking forward to moving forward without any distractions.”
