It's better off!

Since Lindsay Lohan is in rehab, Inferno director Matthew Wilder offered the part of Linda Lovelace to Malin Ackerman - and she's taking it!

Producer Chris Hanley said:

"Lindsay had scheduling issues due to legal obligations and is continuing to focus on getting better in rehabilitation in Palm Springs, and she really had to focus on that in our opinion – and hers. For herself and her career in general it was really her decision to just focus on getting better psychologically.

Malin was passionate to take this challenge of the role to task and we feel she has the talent to meet that challenge."

We wish her well! LiLo's sobriety is much more important than a film role.

Inferno Stands By Lindsay Lohan

Well at least she has a job when she leaves rehab!

Reports were surfacing that actress Sarah Scott would be replacing Lindsay Lohan in the lead role of Inferno: A Linda Lovelace Story, but producer Chris Hanley says that isn't true.

He revealed:

"The producers and director of Inferno, the story of Linda Lovelace, have been aware of certain media articles indicating there had been some alternative actors considered for the Lovelace role other than Lindsay Lohan.

"Lindsay's mother Dina Lohan called the director yesterday concerned that there was some truth to the statements. These stories are completely unfounded and untrue: the producers have been, and continue to be committed to Lindsay in this lead role and are confident that there is no actress that can achieve the dramatic level we require of this role other than Lindsay.

"That is why we suggested her in initial cast meetings, sought her interest, have worked with her on the character of this role creatively for some months, and are committed to Lindsay throughout the entire filmmaking process which includes satisfying a commitment to the courts at this time."

The production schedule is currently working around Lindsay's time in rehab with photography slated to start in November.

Director Matthew Wilder adds:

"The creative team behind Inferno: A Linda Lovelace Story wishes to express our renewed support for Lindsay Lohan…We never considered recasting Inferno, and never would recast it. There is no actor more ideally suited to this role than Lindsay, and we are content to start production after she finishes what the court mandated.

"We hope that those who read these words will disregard the waves of fabrication and vicious personal abuse that have marked the reporting of this story, and join us in wishing the best for this extraordinary artist."

Nobody can play a porn star quite like Lindanity — and it appears her mother agrees!

So professional to have mommy make the call about a job!
