‘Deep Throat’ Director Gerard Damiano Dies

Gerard Damiano, director of the infamous pornographic film Deep Throat has died at the age of 80, after suffering a stroke last month.

Gerard Damiano, director of infamous 1970s pornographic film Deep Throat, has died in Miami at the age of 80.

Made in 1972 for £25,000, it was the first “porno” widely seen in cinemas and made an estimated $600m (£382m).

In light of Damiano’s passing, it is worth mentioning that film producer Brian Grazer is currently planning to make a biopic about the life of Linda Lovelace entitled “Inferno” — and that Rose McGowan is being sought to play Lovelace.

Could Rose McGowan wind up getting deep?

The talented, beautiful star of “Planet Terror” from the Robert Rodriguez part of “Grindhouse” and TV’s “Charmed” is considering joining the cast of “Inferno,” producer Brian Grazer’s film about legendary “Deep Throat” star Linda Lovelace.

I’m told that already cast are Bill Pullman as Hugh Hefner and Josh Lucas as Linda’s husband, Chuck Traynor, the one who got her into porn. First time writer-director Matthew Wilder will direct from his own script.
