LOS ANGELES—AVN and XRCO Director of the Year Axel Braun has completed principal photography for the upcoming epic parody Star Wars XXX: A Porn Parody. The movie, a joint production between Vivid Entertainment and Axel Braun Productions, and will be distributed by Vivid in the fall.
"Allie Haze really nailed the role of spoofing Princess Leia," Braun said. "I've said all along that this will be a career-making role for her and I am now totally convinced that she is going to win the fans' hearts and plenty of accolades for her performance."
The 24-year-old Haze, who was recently signed as a Vivid Girl, plays opposite Seth Gamble, who spoofs Luke Skywalker and Rocco Reed as Han Solo. Other stars in the film are reigning AVN Best Actor Tom Byron, who grew a full beard for the Obi-Wan Kenobi role, Dick Chibbles, who endured over 4 hours in makeup every day to transform into Chewbacca; and the legendary Lexington Steele was Darth Vader.
"Star Wars is one of the biggest movies ever made, so we decided to make the best parody of all time," Braun said.
With a 110-page script, over 30 speaking roles, 14 days of principal photography, hundreds of visual effects and Braun's legendary attention to detail, Star Wars XXX: A Porn Parody is monumental in scope and detail.
"This film is a spoof and not mean-spirited," Braun added. "From the stars to the extras, everyone knew they were involved in something special and worked hard to make sure this was done absolutely right. The result is simply astonishing. This was by far the most expensive, elaborate and complicated production I've ever been involved in. We had illness, unforgiving locations, last minute cast changes, temperamental costumes, finicky props, hair and makeup drama, and some of the most difficult-to-capture sex scenes ever conceived, but we did it, and the result is a true epic that I believe people are going to be talking about for years to come."
Star Wars XXX: A Porn Parody is scheduled for a September 2011 release.
