LOS ANGELES, Nov. 21 (UPI) -- The producer of a planned Linda Lovelace biopic says troubled U.S. actress Lindsay Lohan didn't quit, but was fired.

Director Matthew Wilder said he and producers of "Inferno" decided to recast the show rather than wait for Lohan to be released from a court-ordered stay in a rehabilitation center in January, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Wilder denied a TMZ report Lohan quit the project about the late pornography star, but refused to release any details because he wanted to avoid "mudslinging."

Wilder said additional details would be released Monday about what happened between filmmakers and Lohan. He also said her replacement will be named then.

Last summer Wilder said the show would not be recast "under any circumstances." By October Wilder admitted frustration with Lohan's schedule, but said he hoped to shoot the film in January when Lohan is released from the Betty Ford Center.

A Willie Nelson-produced adventure comedy called "The Dry Gulch Kid" expressed interest in Lohan this summer, the report said.
