For Immediate Release | THE PORNOGRAPHER: Crossover Star James Deen Calls the Shots In a Wicked New Comedy From Eli Cross

LOS ANGELES CA – (APRIL 4, 2014) – Eli Cross, AVN award-winning creator of some of contemporary adult entertainment’s most acclaimed features, is pleased to announce the release of his Wicked Pictures comedy "The Pornographer." Starring mainstream crossover star James Deen, this smart and sexy DVD is now on sale at retail locations nationwide. Inspired by the professional and personal lives of yesteryear's B-movie filmmakers, "The Pornographer" casts Deen (best known to mainstream audiences for his work opposite Lindsay Lohan in Paul Schrader's "The Canyons") as down-on-his-luck director Woody Salinger. It’s 1964, and monsters, robots and aliens just aren't selling movie tickets anymore. Hollywood needs women, the more scantily clad the better. So what’s a young, socially awkward auteur to do? As Woody prepares to make the leap into "nudies," the question remains...will this fuel his transition into the big time at last? With a cast including AVN, XBIZ & XRCO Best Actress Kimberly Kane ("Batman XXX") and featuring the return of porn legend Kylie Ireland in an anal romp with Deen, "The Pornographer" delivers the same blend of style, intelligence and heat that's helped Cross earn Best Director trophies from Adult Video News, NightMoves & Adam Film World. In addition to Kane and Ireland, this new DVD spotlights the talents of such formidable performers as AVN & XRCO Performer of the Year Nicki Hunter, AVN & XRCO Unsung Starlet Amber Rayne, and AVN award-winner Katie Summers. In addition to Deen, the male cast includes Anthony Rosano, Christian, Rocco Reed and Steve Holmes. Beyond the gifted performers, inventive sex scenes and solid production values, the excellence of "The Pornographer" is underscored by the care put into this high-end DVD release. In addition to the 16×9 widescreen HD feature, the disc includes three bonus sex scenes, a sensual still gallery, motion menus, Wicked Pictures trailers and more. And it all comes encased in a retro-style O-card that showcases the film's talented ensemble cast. "The Pornographer" is available now from Wicked Pictures.
