(LOS ANGELES, CA) -- Sasha has begun production for her new company Grey Art, a full service adult film production company, co-owned with producer/director Oren Cohen. The F@%k Junkie is the first title for Grey Art, and will be released domestically this summer.
Not only is the F@%k Junkie Grey Art's first release, it is also the directorial debut for Sasha Grey.
''I've waited a long time to sew my seeds as a director, because I wanted to have the perfect platform. Together Oren and I have created Grey Art as a means to deliver our vision(s) to a varied audience, and I look forward to the continuing challenge of being a modern day female entrepreneur.''
Uber-sultry film actress Sasha Grey, who drips and oozes sexy instantly made an impression in the adult world from the second she burst on the scene. Now the rest of the world gets to meet Sasha as she crosses into the mainstream film world, starring in Steven Soderbergh’s ''the Girlfriend Experience.''
''I’m extremely excited to work with Sasha,'' says Cohen. ''Our visions and esthetic sensibilities are remarkably similar. The nature of our partnership feels incredibly natural and positive, far more positive than anything else I’ve encountered in the adult space. It’s great to have a partner in crime on this strange journey!''
A new website, www.TheFuckJunkie.com will be launched to coincide with the release of her the company’s first title.
Featured in this month’s music go-to magazine Rolling Stone, Sasha talks to journalist Vanessa Grigoriadis about her take on XXX porn, fantasies, feminism and the transition from bondage to mainstream. The piece was photographed by Theo Wenner, son of Jann Wenner and were taken in New York City last month exclusively for Rolling Stone.
