Sarah Jessica Parker has officially taken over the role of famed attorney Gloria Steinem in the upcoming "Lovelace" biopic, replacing the hospitalized Demi Moore.
Representatives from the film issued a statement today confirming that the "Sex and the City" star has officially signed on to the project, which is already in production. Filmmakers had to choose a replacement quickly, and SJP will reportedly begin shooting her scenes on Monday.
"Lovelace" stars Amanda Seyfried as 70s pornstar Linda Lovelace, who was made famous thanks to the film "Deep Throat." Demi was attached to the project to portray lawyer Gloria Steinem, but dropped out of the film this week after she experienced seizures and was rushed to the hospital. TMZ reports that the 49-year-old had a bad reaction while inhaling nitrous oxide, otherwise known as whip-its.
