Hollywood actress Demi Moore is set to play feminist icon Gloria Steinem in the upcoming Linda Lovelace biopic.

'Lovelace' which is based on the porn actress' life, include actors Amanda Seyfried in the lead alongwith Wes Bentley, Sharon Stone and Peter Sarsgaard in prominent roles, reported Variety.

James Franco has rejoined the project after turning down Sarsgaard's role as Lovelace's husband. The '127 Hours' star is in talks to portray Playboy boss Hugh Hefner in the movie, which chronicles the life of the porn star-turned-anti-porn activist.

Lovelace's role in the notorious 1972 hardcore-porn movie 'Deep Throat' made her one of the best-known figures in adult entertainment. The film is directed by Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman and the screenplay is written by Andy Bellin.
