CHYNA HOSTS VIVID NEW YEAR’S EVE PARTY AT ECCO ULTRA -- Former pro-wrestling champion turned adult superstar Chyna will host Vivid Entertainment’s open-to-the-public gala New Year's Eve party at Ecco Ultra Lounge in Hollywood (at 1640 N. Cahuenga Blvd.). Chyna is the star of the runaway hit "Backdoor to Chyna," which was her first movie for Vivid. She’s looking forward to the release of her second movie in 2012. "’'Queen of the Ring' will reveal some behind-the-scenes drama from the world of wrestling that will make both my wrestling and porn fans very happy," she says. Vivid’s New Year’s Eve party is sponsored by Vivid Vodka, the edgiest new super premium drink. Guests will enjoy a free sample tasting of the vodka from 9-10 pm, adding another attraction to an evening that also marks Ecco Ultra's fourth anniversary. The event starts at 9 pm and goes until 4 am, with awesome sounds from the hottest DJs in the country spinning the night away. Mark Lewis, Armen, Anthony Shah, Angeline, Black Liquid and Gago will make music magic in the main room while the amazing DJ Skyler, known for his legendary mash ups with top 40 and house music, will play on the open-air tented patio. "This will be a great evening. I've invited some of the most beautiful women in the adult industry to the party and I'm going to introduce lots of my wrestling fans to my porn fans. We all love music and we're welcoming 2012, so we have a lot in common," Chyna notes.
BRAUN SCHEDULE PACKED; BRUCE LEE SLIDES TO SPRING – In an interview with the Tech-media-tainment blog writer Patrick Seitz last week director Axel Braun talked of a jam-packed production schedule of new porn parodies. Referring to his plans to create X-rated parodies of Bruce Lee, the Beatles and the Rat Pack. “Axel Braun tells Tech-media-tainment that his directing slate is full of superhero porn parodies at the moment. But Braun hopes to film all three public-figure porn parodies next year. Axel explained, “The Bruce Lee movie has been stalling because the only guy who can play the role of Bruce Lee had to go back to England for some family issues. And without him I can’t shoot the movie. There are not many Asian guys in the industry…It’s still going to happen. I just don’t know when. In the meantime, my schedule is full until late 2014.” Tech-media-tainment reported, Axel “might be able to squeeze the project into his schedule in the spring. He just finished shooting an Iron Man and Avengers porn parody and is working on X-rated spoofs of X-Men, Wolverine and ‘Avatar 2’ in December. Then, in January, he’s scheduled to shoot parodies of Thor and the Fantastic Four, followed by a Batman sequel and a ‘Dark Knight’ parody.” Axel told Seitz, “We still have movies in the can that we haven’t released. I have ‘Superman vs. Spider-Man,’ which is a great movie. But ‘Spider-Man XXX’ has been so successful that we don’t want to release it too close to that. I believe that Bruce Lee should be done in the spring … The Beatles and Rat Pack, which I was planning to shoot back-to-back, could happen around June and be ready to release the Beatles in September and Rat Pack in January 2013. That’s my hope.”
