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.”

UPDATE: It's being reported that Malin Ackerman (Watchmen) has been given the role.

"We are withdrawing our offer from Lindsay Lohan," director Matthew Wilder said. "We are currently in negotiations [with another actress] and working out the legalities of bringing her onboard."

Shields posted a few photos that he, Lohan, and director Matthew Wilder collaborated on, in an effort to hype up Inferno.
