For Immediate Release| 2015 AVN Best Feature Director Brad Armstrong Announces Production on MAGIC MIKE XXXL: A HARDCORE PARODY

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA – (APRIL 22, 2015) – Adult industry powerhouse Wicked Pictures is pleased to announce that 2015 AVN Best Feature Director Brad Armstrong is throwing his hat into the parody ring for the third time. After the success of Best Parody winner The Rocki Whore Picture Show: A Hardcore Parody and Best Parody nominee Men In Black: A Hardcore Parody, Armstrong is taking the plunge with a subject matter he knows all too well. Members of the press are invited to chronicle the excitement when Magic Mike XXXL: A Hardcore Parody goes before the cameras later this week. “I lived the life of a male stripper for over ten years before I got into the adult industry,” reveals the acclaimed filmmaker, winner of AVN’s Best Feature Drama award for his Editor's Choice blockbuster Aftermath. “Being a dancer was really my stepping-stone into porn. I almost did a Magic Mike parody when the first one came out, but I wasn’t sure how well it would be received. Now that there is a sequel, I didn’t want to miss this chance to do it. When I heard they were calling it Magic Mike XXL it was obvious it could be perfectly parodied by turning it into XXXL. It was just too good to pass up.” While pre-production on The Rocki Whore Picture Show: A Hardcore Parody saw Armstrong holding elaborate, industry-wide auditions, the director’s pre-production process for XXXL has been much more streamlined. “I was going to have a big casting call and dance tryouts, but when I started looking at the mainstream actors alongside our industry’s talent pool, my choices became VERY clear,” he enthuses. ”The cast started jumping out at me. We quickly moved into rehearsals for the group number and the rest is history. I’m super excited to get shooting underway. It’s been so much fun getting the guys ready for the stage - it kind of felt like my old stripper days,” he reminisces. “Magic Mike XXXL: A Hardcore Parody will spoof both the original and the sequel. This gives me the option of playing off of the characters we know and love from the first movie, as well as introducing some of the new characters from the follow up. I also added a few hot female characters of my own to round out the cast.” Armstrong’s male cast includes Derrick Pierce (as Mike), Seth Gamble (as The Kid), Ryan Driller (as Ken), Toni Martinez (as Tito), Dick Chibbles (as Tarzan) and Ryan McLane (as Dallas). The females include Wicked Girl and Aftermath star jessica drake (as Brooke), Jessa Rhodes (as the Birthday Girl), Kendra Lust (as Nancy), and Adrianna Chechik (as Nancy’s daughter). As always, Armstrong is adding some unique casting flourishes of his own. “Asa Akira and Mia Malkova portray new characters I’ve added to the mix, and Misty Stone plays Rome, a character that parodies the sequel’s female lead.” Members of the press interested in covering this production for their website, magazine or blog are invited to get in on the excitement today by contacting Daniel Metcalf (danielroadstomoscow@gmail.com) at 818-266-7910 for details. Space for visitors is limited, so interested parties are urged to book their visit immediately to guarantee access to the set. Production commences later this week. Like the mainstream title, Magic Mike XXXL: A Hardcore Parody is slated for a July 2015 release. For more information, please visit www.wicked.com.
