Lindsay Lohan Loses 'Inferno' Porn Biopic Role To Malin Akerman

Lindsay Lohan (photosLindsay Lohan photos) has lost her role in 'Inferno'.

The 24-year-old actress, who is currently in rehab at the Betty Ford Center, has been dropped from the Linda Lovelace biopic in favor of Malin Akerman (photosMalin Akerman photos).

"Lindsay had scheduling issues due to legal obligations and is continuing to focus on getting better in rehabilitation in Palm Springs, and she really had to focus on that in our opinion and hers," says the film's producer, Chris Hanley. "For herself and her career in general it was really her decision to just focus on getting better psychologically."

"We are withdrawing our offer from Lindsay Lohan. We have stuck by Lindsay very patiently for a long time with a lot of love and support," explains director Matthew Wilder. "Ultimately, the impossibility of insuring her and some other issues have made it impossible for us to go forward."

Lohan is expected to be in rehab in southern California until at least January 3. But the bigger news is that if a studio can't insure Lohan to play a porn star with drug problems, a Hollywood return for Lohan may have just slipped away for good.

As for Malin Akerman, Hanley says: "She was passionate to take this challenge of the role to task and we feel she has the talent (read: body) to meet that challenge."

Akerman is best known for her roles in 'Watchmen', 'The Heartbreak Kid', '27 Dresses' and 'Couples Retreat'.
