LAS VEGAS—Teagan Presley co-owned studio skinworXXX has announced plans for two new titles to follow its AVN Award-winning sophomore effort Deviance—and one of those will mark Presley's own directorial debut.
D2: Deviance and all-girler FemmeCore go into simultaneous production next month in Los Angeles, and are scheduled to be released later in the year by skinworXXX distributor Adam & Eve Pictures. The latter project is the one Presley will helm, something she says she's wanted to try her hand at for some time.
"I had planned on directing my first movie a few years ago, but things didn't work out as planned," Presley said. "Since we're shooting Deviance 2 and I'm shooting two other Adam & Eve movies at one time, we just figured hey, why not give it a try? Because I've been telling them, 'I want to do it, I want to do it, I want to do it,' so they said, 'OK, it's time to do it!'"
FemmeCore will feature Presley in all five of its scenes, and she will be joined by fellow Adam & Eve contract girl Alexis Ford, Andy San Dimas, Celeste Star, Lisa Ann, Nina Mercedez, Monique Alexander and Juelz Ventura. To oversee the videography, skinworXXX CEO/director Joshua secured award-winning lensman Francois Clousot.
"Francois is one of the very best in the business," Joshua said. "His work for Wicked has been unbelievable, and we felt like his skill set and technical savvy would really help Teagan make FemmeCore something special."
Joshua himself will return as the director of D2, with Presley and Alexis Texas rejoining him from the original cast, plus the following star-studded lineup of new faces: Jenna Haze, Nikki Benz, Kristina Rose, Rebeca Linares ... and as the most surprising addition, the long-absent-from-adult Adrenalynn.
"Honestly, I've been getting emails since we did Sun Goddess asking me to see if I could work something out with [Adrenalynn]," Joshua told AVN. "So I finally went ahead and got a hold of her, and I sent her a copy of the first movie and I told her I'd like her to be in it, and we've been negotiating for a couple of months, and we finally agreed. It's been almost two years, I believe, since she's done a movie, maybe three. It's funny ... for a girl that only did a few Digital Playground movies, she has a huge fucking following. So she should be good."
Added Adrenalynn herself, "I was so excited to be asked to be a part of this production. Finally, I believe that my fans will get to see the real me instead of the limited porn poster girl image set forth by past contractual obligations."
Joshua said D2 will have "the same kind of look and feel as the first one, but other than the last scene, which is the big orgy with the girls again, we tried to do everything different this time than the first movie."
Down the road, Joshua said skinworXXX plans to produce a second installment of Sun Goddess, as well as a scripted vehicle for Teagan and "a really cool, secret project that I can't talk about, but it'll be an industry first, and I'm gonna try to get that one out for awards season also."
Joshua also noted that fans can look forward to Adrenalynn becoming a part of the Divas of Deviance dancing tour Presley does with other cast members from the Deviance movies.
"She's a professional dancer, and that was one of the big selling points for her," he said. "And also when she goes on the Divas tour she's going to do tattoos in other cities, so it's kind of a cool deal for her."
