New Lovelace images show James Franco as Hugh Hefner

A new batch on on-set images have arrived from pornstar biopic Lovelace , including a first look at James Franco as flesh-appreciator in chief, Hugh Hefner.

Sporting a hideous velvet blouson and silk scarf combo, Franco looks every inch the louche lothario. We can only hope that a matching smoking jacket is lurking in that wardrobe somewhere…

The latest set of pictures also feature Amanda Seyfried and Juno Temple out for a night on the town. Seyfried plays titular adult entertainer Linda Lovelace, with Temple on hand as one of her friends. From the look of their outfits, the two are probably in the same line of work.

Elsewhere, there’s a glimpse of Peter Sarsgaard looking mean and moody as Lovelace’s abusive husband Chuck Traynor. Pleasingly, he’s rocking quite the moustache.

Directed by Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman, Lovelace has yet to receive an official release date, but is expected to open later in the year. You can check out the new images below...
