Wicked Pictures and Writer/Director Jonathan Morgan are set to release "Hercules" this week. The mega-budget comedy casts Evan Stone as Hercules, Randy Spears as Theseus his sidekick, and Julia Ann as Hera, Hercules' nemesis. Other cast members include Sydnee Steele, Fujiko, Lezley Zen, Dee, Ron Jeremy, Peaceful Pete, Flick Shagwell, Ashley Morgan, Zana, and many others.
2:50pm: After getting lost a few times, I finally find the location which is perched high up in the Malibu canyons. It's best described as a Mediterranean Villa complete with tennis court, swimming pool, Koi pond, waterfalls, and plenty of privacy. I'm greeted by Daniel Metcalf, Wicked's publicist, who hands me a copy of the 60 page script. That's a huge script compared to the 20 pages I normally see on a movie. The crew is on a meal break, so I catch up with Mr. Morgan and ask him a few questions. He tells me that the script was written by himself and Martin Brimmer, they team-up on 90% of Jonathan's projects. "I was watching Hercules on late night TV and noticed that he had to do 12 labors in the movie and thought what if I changed that to labors of love," says Mr. Morgan. With script in hand, Jonathan met with Steve Orenstein and the rest is history. Jonathan adds, "We are going to offer the consumer a 2.5 hour VHS tape or a double disc DVD with 10 sex scenes and plenty of laughs."
5:00pm: As I walk around the Villa the transformation is taking place. Brad Armstrong is the Art Director and he has brought hundreds of props and costumes today to set the right atmosphere. The next scene stars Julia Ann (Goddess Hera) and Ian Daniels (poor farmer) in some dialog and then a sex scene. It seems that the poor farmer has asked Hera to help bring rain to his crops and in return she requests he perform a small task. They begin with pussy eating by Ian with Julia sitting down and legs up high. Jake Jacobs is working the jib (camera mounted on a crane) which gets a great overhead shot, while Marcel is wielding the other camera by hand. She decides that a little cock is needed and begins to suck Ian to full mast, which in this case is only 6.25 inches.
He looks very content with Julia's tongue sliding along his shaft in short bursts. A few minutes later he's ready to fuck and lays her down for the missionary insertion. Ian slides his throbbing cock inside Julia's waiting pussy, pumping faster and faster to her moans. Next, they switch to reverse cowgirl providing a view of Julia's luscious breasts bouncing up and down while Ian's cock fills her pussy. The lighting is perfect with just a hint of fog rolling in from the ocean. Julia wants it deeper so they move to doggie standing up. The action is fast and furious as Jonathan calls for the Fip (fake internal pop for soft core) which lasts for 10 seconds. Then she gives Ian a hand job until he cums all over her face. In between the fucking and cum shot, they shoot some footage of Ian being turned into a frog since that's what happens when a mortal fucks a goddess. The frog was well treated and after a few attempts, Jonathan gets what he needed.
7:30pm: I head to the craft service area to get some food. As I grab a plate, I see that Legend Ron Jeremy has beaten me to the punch. Keen's Creations has prepared some tasty meatballs with cranberry chili and vegetable egg rolls. The meal is cut short as Randy Spears and Dee are ready for the next scene.
8:00pm: They shot the scene in the backyard by the pond. It's dark and the fog is rolling through providing some great footage, but also increasing the chill factor. Dee plays a nymph who seduces men in the forest and Randy is her next victim. Wearing a beautiful renaissance dress, Dee begins by double fisting Randy's cock. Intrigued by her expertise, Jonathan comes over and takes a look fist hand. Randy gets hard quickly and Dee begins to suck Randy's cock with the same precision. They transition to a standing doggie with Randy happy to find a warm pussy for his cock in this weather. He pumps her like a boy scout trying to start a fire. The heat is building from where I stand as Randy drops to the ground. Still hard, Dee hops on reverse cowgirl offering the cameras a nice peek at her tight pussy. Perched on a large flat rock, Randy's ass is freezing but his cock is nice and warm. The Jib camera has gotten all the footage that Mr. Morgan requires and he calls for the pop. He decides to have Dee blow Randy to orgasm and take the cum in her face. She begins the process by sucking, stroking, licking, and fisting until Mr. Spears quivers sending a stream of mascara all over Dee's waiting lips. With cum dripping down her chin, Dee smiles for the cameras.
10:00pm: The Village scene will be shot in the courtyard and Brad has done a tremendous job decorating. It will require 10-15 extras along with the cast to complete. Unfortunately, only three extras showed up for some unknown reason. The three that did show were chosen from fans attending LA Erotica who filled out a questionnaire. In addition to the walk on role, these lucky guys will get food and the Hercules DVD. With time running short, Jonathan recruits everyone on the set including yours truly. I play "Peaceful Pete" proprietor Weapons of Death.
11:00pm: After 15 minutes of wardrobe with Brad Armstrong and makeup with Red Velvet, I am ready to join the ranks of porn stardom. In this scene, Ron Jeremy plays the Village pimp, with extras staffing the various Village shops and walking around in the background. The three contest winners went through some intense make-up and play the role of Village Lepers. I man my shop of weapons and get ready for my cue. The cameras roll and Jonathan walks around to each shop and gets them to do something funny. He gets to my set and dubs me "Peaceful Pete." My acting ability is so bad that he finds humor in it. I say, "Come one, come all, welcome to Peaceful Pete's Weapons of Death, where every weapon has tasted the blood of battle." Then a customer hits me with one of my weapons and I bend over saying, "And this one is half price."
After all the shops have been covered, Hercules and Theseus come into the Village and chat up dialog with Mike Horner, who plays an old woman, and Ron the Village pimp. Next, they gather Villagers in a line looking for volunteers to accompany them in their long and dangerous journey. I am third in line and say, "My name is Peaceful Pete, proprietor Weapons of Death." Hercules rejects me and that's the end of my role. The last person in line is Fujiko, who plays Fuji, a female king fu expert. She wields a sword and wants to join the journey. Hercules is impressed by her swordsmanship, but inquires if she can do anything else; to which she grabs two men from the crowd and prepares to fuck them.
1:00am: It has gotten extremely late and cold as Jonathan prepares to shoot the last sex scene. It will be a B/B/G anal with Fujiko, Pat Myne, and Steve Hatcher. She pulls out their cocks and strokes one cock in each hand. Pat gets hard first so she puts his cock in her mouth like a fatty tuna roll and deep throats him. He's enjoying this as he forgets how cold it is outside. She senses that Steve is ready for some tongue and moves over to warm up his tool with her lips. This veteran of Tokyo porn has just recently joined the big leagues here in the SFV.
Her goal is to become a porn star in the world's largest market. She sucks cock like a girl trying to eat two Popsicles simultaneous on a hot summer day. Back and forth her head moves making sure each cock is kept warm and hard. Pat decides that he wants to fuck and open her legs from behind. He begins fucking her doggie while she continues to blow Steve. The moans from Fujiko are piercing as Pat pounds her harder. "Give me the dirty eye," yells Jonathan. With that, Steve moves his cock out of Fujiko's mouth and inserts it in her ass. It's a tight ass, but Steve manages to slide it in with a little lube. Sucking Pat's cock, Fujiko now is getting fucked harder in the ass and comes furiously. They sit her down so Pat can fuck her missionary on the fountain. She's extremely durable as these orgy guys ravage her with reckless abandon. Fujiko finishes them off with a double blow job; catching their cum in her mouth. It's 2 am when they finish, and Fujiko added a lot of heat in that sex scene.
2:30pm: The location for the next two days is at a field in the Valley. The sun is hot and the temperature is sweltering. Jonathan is already shooting with Evan and Randy when I arrive. The crew didn't get packed up and out of the house until 4 am this morning, but they seem to have much more energy than myself. A great crew is hard to find and that's why Jonathan hand picks his people for every movie. A few hours later Mr. Metcalf tells me that there will be no sex today, so he suggests that I go home and rest up for the orgy scene tomorrow. It was very professional of him and that's why Mr. Orenstein pays him the big bucks. I'm out of there and in bed by 8 Pm.
1:30pm: Refreshed, I head back to the same location as yesterday. They are still getting the Amazon Camp scene ready so I catch up with Randy Spears. He is watching Golf on Television with Morgan, the location caretaker and Jeff, the script coach in a trailer on the property. First, I ask Jeff about his role, "Jonathan hired me to work with the cast in their delivery of dialog throughout the shoot and some of them actually have some talent," says Jeff. Morgan says, "I used to do extras casting and I remember Randy doing a few jobs for me." "That was before I got into porn, but when the writers strike hit, I kind of wondered into modeling and you know the rest," comments Randy. We watch Tiger win the masters and then it's back to work.
3:30pm: I head out to an open field where Hercules, Theseus, and 3 warriors are being captured by Queen Hippolyte (Sydnee Steele) and her all-female Amazon tribe. Once captured, they are taken back to their camp for more dialog and eventually sex.
5:30pm: They are shooting pretty girl of Zana, Ashley Morgan, and Flick Shagwell by the Amazon camp. I take a few photos of the girls in their primitive costumes and war paint makeup. Brad has really done a great job with the costumes, for a second I forget this is porno.
6:30pm: Evan Stone and Sydnee Steele sex scene. Sydnee, Queen Hippolyte, needs Hercules' seed to procreate in order for the tribe to flourish. Evan begins by eating some Queen pussy with long tongues. She lays back on her elbows, open her legs wider, and drops her head back in pleasure. Evan increases the pace as he nuzzles his head in for some close up action. The passion is animalistic as they both moan in unison. Sydnee now gets on her knees and begins to suck Evan's fully erect cock. Hercules is grinning from ear to ear from the fantastic work by Sydnee's tongue.
Jonathan wants to move right into fucking so he suggests either cowgirl or pile driver. Evan says, "Let's do something easy like pile driver." Everyone chuckles as pile driver is one of the toughest positions to perform. Sydnee is up for the task as she positions a few pillows to cushion her head and shoulders. Upside down and facing the camera, Sydnee opens her legs so that Evan can insert his cock into her seed container. He grabs her legs and drills her with long strokes. Then in a circus like move, Evan grabs Sydnee's arms, lift her up to a horizontal position and continues fucking her. Incredible shoulder and cock strength is needed in this position. He holds her for a few minutes then drops her back down and continues pile driver on the Queen. "Take it all," yells the mighty Hercules. "You're lucky that I need your seed," replies Queen Hippolyte.
Between each position, Jake pans in and out of action with the Jib. Jonathan calls the move Jake O'pan and usually is satisfied with the results. On one Jake O'pan he chooses a sword, then a torch, and finally he finds an igloo cooler. "What was that," laughs Mr. Morgan. Next, they go into reverse cowgirl, another tough position, but no sweat for these "A" performers. Sydnee hops on Evan's man sword, working her tight pussy down his massive shaft. Slowly, Evan begins to drill her pussy increasing the friction in order to gather more pleasure. These two performers really know each other and you can tell how comfortable they are with each other's bodies. Sometimes they forget that they are fucking for the camera as they are enjoying themselves so much.
They switch to the spoon position, which is very romantic since it allows for cuddling. Sydnee seems to enjoy Evan's powerful arms around her as he pumps faster anticipating the cum shot. Jonathan checks the time, looks at Evan, and calls for the pop. They decide to have Sydnee suck him to a cum shot on her face. She strokes his cock and in a few minutes we have seed all over her mouth and lips. I'm no expert but doesn't the sperm need to swim to the fallopian tube to begin fertilization?
8:15pm: The big orgy scene between Hercules' warriors and Queen Hippolyte's Amazon girls is about to start. The performers are Steve Hatcher, Lee Stone, Randy Spears, Alex Sanders, Ashley Morgan, Lezley Zen, Flick Shagwell, and Zana. Jonathan comes over to the blanket where all the sex will take place and calls out the start positions. "Zana Blows Lee, Randy eats Lezley's pussy while she sucks Alex's cock, Steve eats Flick, and Ashley licks Flicks tits," says Jonathan. Since there are only two cameras, Jonathan tells everyone to pace yourself and stay in position until I tell you to move. The players begin sucking, licking, and eating as the cameras move around trying to catch every angle possible. Jake is covering the overhead footage while Marcel works ground level. The costumes, lighting, and background are spectacular! I notice that Ashley, a tasty long legged blonde, is not satisfied with tit licking so she turns around to help Zana suck Lee's massive 10.5 inch sword and 2 daggers.
Next, Steve fucks Zana reverse cowgirl, Alex scissors with Ashley, Randy missionary Lezley, and Lee fucking Flick reverse cowgirl. There is so much going on that any porn viewer will find something interesting in this scene. They switch one more time with Steve fucking Ashley missionary while she blows Randy, Lee fucks Lezley doggie while she eats Zana, and Flick cowgirl on Alex. I have a perfect view of Ashley's threesome within the orgy and she is sucking Randy's cock with passion. Randy is really swelling and making cum faces. Then, Ashley pulls her mouth away from Randy's cock and I watch her spit out some cum and apply it to her pussy. Without a pause she starts sucking again. That's some really nasty stuff. Now they are ready for the cum shot and Jonathan lets them decide if they want to fuck or jack to pop. "When you're ready, yell ready to cum," says Director Morgan. First to pop is Alex Sanders on Lezley's face, followed by Steve on Flick's, then Randy on Ashley's, and finally Lee uncorks on Zana. This was a great ending to a fantastic weekend of sex.
Even though I only witnessed three out of the six days of production, I am convinced that Wicked has a multi-award winner at this year's AVN show in January. The writing, directing, art direction and acting was superb. I still can't believe that they are offering this as one movie rather than making it a trilogy; like Private did with Gladiator. The release date will be September 12.
