Lindsay Lohan's Porn-Biopic 'Inferno' Moves To Los Angeles To Accommodate Its Rehab-Headed Star

Lindsay Lohan on set of 'Inferno'Though Lindsay Lohan was released from jail on Friday, there is little doubt that court complications will keep her in the Los Angeles area long past her release. Those geographical limitations have now affected Lohan's upcoming Linda Lovelace biopic "Inferno," with the production now moving from Louisiana to Los Angeles to accommodate the troubled star. Sources told TMZ that the decision was made because they "don't want to lose Lindsay for the part."

Director Matthew Wilder confirmed the move to MTV News on Friday. "We love her. We want her to do well," he said. "I think [it] will make things easier on the Lindsay front. I understand people's exasperation. I share it. But there is a tremendous gift underneath all the obvious baggage."

The move is said to have cost the film's producers a sizable amount of money, but according to TMZ'z source they were willing to spend it to keep Lohan as their lead. "We're staying [in Los Angeles] -- good for the movie, but also the best way to deal with travel restrictions or other hijinks," the source said.

The production is currently scouting locations in Los Angeles and filming is planned to resume as soon as January. This is still a delay from earlier this year, when the film was supposed to start shooting in November before Lohan's initial jail stint. If the starlet remains out of trouble for the next few months, it appears filming could get begin on schedule.

When promotional photos for "Inferno" were leaked in August, Wilder told MTV that he was impressed with Lohan's acting ability and passion for the project. Describing a scene they were taking photos of, he said, "We put her in a chair, and she went into this total volcanic meltdown and then just like a second later snapped out of it and walked away, walked back and was talking normally to everyone else. ... I've never seen anybody who could turn it off like that and turn it on so intensely and then kind of walk away."
