Sharon Stone has been confirmed to play the mother of porn star Linda Lovelace.

Lovelace, a biopic of the adult star is currently in the works, telling the story of the actress, whose movie Deep Throat is considered to be the most iconic of the genre, as well as being one of the highest-grossing independent films of all time.

Amanda Seyfried is already signed up to play Lovelace in the film, produced by Rob Epstein and Jerry Friedman, according to Deadline. The Basic Instinct legend announced this week she will be portraying the mother.

The script centers on Lovelace's relationship with her husband Chuck Traynor, who steered her into the business before she subsequently quit porn and divorced Traynor. Peter Sarsgaard is in negotiations to play Traynor. The script is by Andy Bellin and W. Merritt Johnson, based on the book The Complete Linda Lovelace by Eric Danville.

Stone will complete filming for her thriller The Mule before starting on the Lovelace movie. Both are expected to begin production in January.
