Sarah Jessica Parker has replaced Demi Moore in 'Lovelace'.

The ‘Sex and the City’ star will take on the role of feminist Gloria Steinem in the movie about real-life adult film actress Linda Lovelace following Moore's decision to pull out in the wake of her hospitalisation earlier this week.

Parker, 49, officially signed up to the project on Friday and joins new cast member Chloe Sevigny who has agreed to play the part of a journalist tasked with finding out the real story of Lovelace’s life.

Amanda Seyfried stars as the X-rated actress – who appeared in one of the world’s most infamous adult films, 'Deep Throat'.

'Lovelace' - directed by Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman - began shooting in December and is expected to be released later this year.

Moore was rushed to hospital on Monday and treated for “exhaustion” after suffering a seizure at a party at her home.

Details of the 911 call made on the evening have now been released.

During the conversation one of the 49-year-old actress’ friends tells the operator: “We need an ambulance here as soon as possible. Why is an ambulance not on its way right now? She smoked something. It's not marijuana, but it's similar to, it's similar to incense, and she seems to be having convulsions of some sort."

Moore – who is in the process of divorcing her husband Ashton Kutcher - has been alleged to be suffering from anorexia and substance abuse issues.
