First it was Lindsay Lohan, then Kate Hudson. Now Amanda Seyfried is the latest actress in talks to portray the 1970s porn star Linda Lovelace. Many celebrity names have been tossed around for the role because there's not just one -- but two films in the works about the actress who starred in "Deep Throat," one of the highest-grossing independent films of all time.

Pictures: Amanda Seyfried

The first flick, called "Lovelace," will reportedly feature Seyfried as the famous porn star and Peter Sarsgaard as Lovelace's husband, Chuck Traynor, according to Variety. The upcoming flick will be based on the 2001 biography, "The Complete Linda Lovelace," published one year before Lovelace died. Previously, Hudson and James Franco were linked to the film.

Last year, Lohan was attached to a separate Lovelace film, "Inferno: A Linda Lovelace Story." But after her legal troubles, she lost the role to Malin Akerman, who will now star alongside Matt Dillon.

Both films are slated to start filming early next year.
