Lindsay Lohan has landed what has been described as "one of the most challenging roles any actor could play" - that of portraying 1970s grumble flick star Linda Lovelace.

According to Variety, talented 24-year-old thespiatrix Lohan will interpret the Deep Throat pornstress for an indie production entitled Inferno, concentrating on "difficult stuff she went through and overcame", as producer Wali Razaqi put it to the Los Angeles Times.

Razaqi elaborated: "I would say it's probably one of the most challenging roles any actor could play - and not because of the sexual content, necessarily - but more because she was so battered and beat up emotionally, that I think it's gonna take everything Lindsay has to really be able to pull it off."

Razaqi suggested that Lohan's personal experience would better equip her to pull off Lovelace, noting: "Not that Lindsay's life is similar in any way - but she's been through a lot of ups and downs. A lot of times you're loved and then you're hated, and I think she can relate to those emotions and feelings."

Lovelace, née Linda Susan Boreman, renounced pornography following her rise to international smut fame, and later "became a spokeswoman for the anti-pornography movement". She died following a car crash in Denver in 2002, Variety notes. ®
