Mainstream film producer and adult film superstar Brittany Andrews has teamed up with director Dan Frank and Upward Rising Development to screen their gritty rock & roll film Speed Dragon during the Cannes Film Festival. The world premiere will take place on Friday, May 17, 2013 at 4 p.m. at Palais E. The film will have an additional screening on Tuesday, May 21, at 2 p.m. at Gray 5.
Speed Dragon centers on the destruction of a famous rock star—with the record label executives pulling all of the strings. "The film is very much a rock and roll drama like Sid & Nancy meets Spun," said Miss Andrews, "but a lot more intense." Speed Dragon stars Bai Ling, best known for her role opposite Richard Gere in Red Corner, and newcomer DJ Parker. The film also has appearances by the infamous Ron Jeremy, Carlos Ramirez, Burgandi Phoenix and Mimi Miyagi. Andrews plays the role of Spice in the film.
The film was written and produced by Dan Frank, who recently won awards with his critically acclaimed documentaries Medicinal 101 and Frank & Chip: The Olympic Experience. Frank previously worked with Andrews on her award-winning reality web series My Real Porn Life. Andrews herself has won more than 15 awards from various film festivals for the mainstream film and television projects she has produced during the last three years.
"I feel very fortunate to have Brittany Andrews as a part of Speed Dragon," said director Frank. "Brittany really brought her A-game as producer and actress. Helping with the overall look and direction of the movie, Brittany also helped cast the select lead, DJ Parker, and brought on Ron Jeremy. I couldn't have shot the film in New York without her help. Brittany’s performance of Spice is one of the best in the movie."
The film will screen in the U.S. later this year with dates to be announced shortly. To view the official trailer for Speed Dragon, please click here.
