Lindsay Lohan’s ‘Inferno’ too hot for big screen

Lindsay Lohan’s big return to acting is supposed to be in the role of Linda Lovelace, a.k.a, “Deep Throat,” in the film “Inferno.” However, the role may be so controversial it won’t see the light of day in any mainstream fashion.

According to Aerik Von, who works at a fetish website and claims to have read the “Inferno” script, and spoke to the New York Post, Lohan will have to play a role in which her character is “thoroughly degraded.” According to Von, “the movie is obviously designed to just outright disturb (with) the combination of childhood imagery and absolute outright depraved perversions.”

“It’s hard to imagine the movie making it to theaters in its current form no matter who plays Lovelace,” reports the Post.
