Vivid releases Monique Alexander thriller; Sasha Grey to star in 'Throat'

P.T. Talks 'Cry Wolf, 'Deep Throat' Redux

LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Vivid Entertainment this week is releasing Cry Wolf, a psychosexual melodrama from director Paul Thomas that's one of the studio's major 2008 features.

Vivid contract girl Monique Alexander plays a mercurial young woman caught up in the drug-fueled Hollywood subculture who has a devastating effect on three men, played by Mr. Marcus, Marcos Leon and Steven St. Croix. Although there are plenty of other girls in the cast, Alexander's the only one with a substantial role.

"I think it's an extremely interesting and compelling, original story," director Thomas told AVN by phone during a break on a new Vivid set.  "A very, very solid script [by Tony G.], really well delivered. That's a rare animal these days."

He feels that the intricate story, with its unexpected twists and turns, "makes sense. A lot of time we create these tricky plots-time jumps and flashbacks and flash-forwards-in post. [Because] the original plotline was linear and we wanted to make it more interesting. But this was designed especially this way. So it works."

He was also happy with the star. "Monique is really sexy, even without fucking all the time, which is what I try to get them to do. When people ask me what my job is during the sex scenes, I say it's to get the people to be sexy without fucking. As soon as I stop directing they can start fucking.

"I thought that Monique, like so many of the girls, really seems to resonate with Mr. Marcus - it's exciting to see them with him. They were just great together."

Cry Wolf was one of the last Vivid features to be shot on film. Next week, on HD video, Thomas begins shooting the much-anticipated remake of Deep Throat, starring Sasha Grey. According to Thomas, it's not merely a remake but a thorough reinvention of the 1972 classic.

"The original of course was a farcical comedy. I was about to do it as a comedy, where Cinderella is Deep Throat and the Prince is out looking in the Kingdom for who deep-throated him the night before.

"But at the last moment we decided to do it as a really dark, serious piece. So it's now a murder-mystery. A freaky girl with a clit in her throat, almost like the Elephant Man-they make fun of her. It's such a total departure from the original."

The original's opening, he said, "seemed to lend itself to the potential of doing a serious movie about a girl who is...a freak. People take advantage of freaks. I feel real excited about the potential of it."

He added, in what is surely an understatement, "Sasha Grey is a very, very interesting girl."
