(LOS ANGELES, CA) -- Vivid Entertainment, the world's leading adult film company, has signed a distribution deal with Axel Braun Productions, headed by award-winning director Axel Braun.
Braun has produced adult films for over 20 years, but the Vivid deal marks the first time he has had an association that provides him with full creative control. ''I can't imagine a better company for me to partner with in a distribution deal. I have so much respect for Steven Hirsch and what he has accomplished at Vivid, and I'm absolutely thrilled about this deal,'' says Braun.
''Axel has had friendships with several members of the Vivid family over the years and we are delighted that this has led to a business relationship,'' says Hirsch, Vivid's Co-Chairman. ''We all admire his creativity, unique cultural perspective and drive.''
The success of Braun's two recent hit movie parodies ''This Ain't Happy Days XXX'' and ''This Ain't Star Trek XXX,'' inspired him to launch his new venture with parodies of four classic TV series, and the first one in line is ''Batman XXX: A Porn Parody.''
''As a child I was a huge comics fan, so obviously Batman has a special place in my heart,'' says Axel. ''I grew up in Italy and I clearly remember the excitement I felt the day the 3D View-Master disc came out, several years before Italian TV started airing the show. To see my favorite comic book character literally come to life was an extraordinary experience, and putting together my own XXX version is a dream come true.''
''Batman XXX: A Porn Parody'' will be followed by ''The Addams Family XXX: A Porn Parody,'' ''Zorro XXX: A Porn Parody,'' and ''The Green Hornet XXX: A Porn Parody.''
''We're already in pre-production for all four movies and I'm storyboarding them entirely. It's very important for me to visualize every shot in advance, this way I can give them the same look and feel of the originals. Plus, since they mark the debut of my venture with Vivid, I definitely want them to be my best work ever!''
