(LOS ANGELES, CA) -- Axel Braun and Vivid Entertainment have announced additions to the production lineup for new XXX parodies that will spoof Elvis Presley, the Beatles and the Rat Pack.
"The first one up is Elvis XXX: A Porn Parody, which we'll shoot in November so we can have it in stores by January 8, which is Elvis' birthday," said Braun. "I'm a huge Elvis fan. Elvis had a great sense of humor, so I'd like to think he would actually have plenty of fun watching my movie spoof."
"Dale DaBone, who incidentally was also born on January 8, will play Elvis at various stages of his life, and he will sing two songs. Andy San Dimas will play Priscilla Presley. The movie will also feature portrayals of Marilyn Monroe, James Dean and boxing legend Muhammad Ali, played by Tyler Knight."
Braun, who just won for Best Director at the annual Nightmoves Awards Show, will then shoot the previously announcedThe Godfather XXX in December, and in early 2011 will produce the Beatles XXX followed by the Rat Pack XXX.
The Beatles XXX will show the Fab Four throughout their career and will include fictitious interviews with friends and family. The Rat Pack XXX will unfold over a late night, booze-fueled poker game between Frank, Sammy, and Dean as they reminisce about their lives. Actors playing Ava Gardner, Mia Farrow, Jerry Lewis, and Kim Novak will be featured, along with a couple of songs, and plenty of slapstick and chatter.
"Axel has a true gift for parody and we are delighted to be working with him on distribution of his movies," said Steven Hirsch, founder/co-chairman of Vivid. "Because he is also a fan, he makes sure that his movies are of the highest quality."
The new titles complement Braun productions already scheduled for 2011, such as the highly anticipated Star Wars XXX: A Porn Parody, and spoofs of the popular TV shows Law & Order, Starsky & Hutch, and the Addams Family, as well as movie classics Grease and Clockwork Orange.
Braun's Batman XXX: A Porn Parody, also distributed by Vivid, has been at the top of the charts since its May release, and has already become the best-selling adult parody of the year. It won the Best Parody awards at the 18th Annual NightMoves Awards Show Weekend and at the Fifth Annual F.a.M.E. (Fans of Adult Media & Entertainment) Awards.
