SAN FRANCISCO — All-male studio Titan Media has extended its long-standing production pact with writer-director Joe Gage. The expanded deal allows Gage to continue his storied run with the gay adult powerhouse while also producing and directing for his own label.

"The people at Titan and the wide range of resources they have made available to me over the years have afforded me opportunities to expand my creative horizons more than I would have thought possible," Gage said.

"I'm looking forward to this next step in our shared adventure."

Gage has helmed nearly two-dozen blue movies since signing his first production pact with the studio in 2005. Those titles include "Arcade on Route 9," "Gunnery Sgt. McCool," "The Road to Redneck Hollow," "Alabama Takedown" and the "Men's Room" trilogy.

His current TitanMen title is "Slow Heat in a Texas Town" starring Chad Manning with Nick Capra, Steve O'Donnell and Jackson Wild.

Last year Gage formed the boutique label D/G Mutual Media with performer-director Ray Dragon. He will continue to shepherd projects for the line while also directing for Titan.

"I am very pleased that Joe has committed to furthering our existing partnership and friendship. Joe is a true moviemaker and we are committed to giving him the creative freedom to make movies the way he wants to make them," said Titan CEO Bruce Cam.

"There is nobody in our industry who can tell a story and make a move better than Joe Gage. We are honored that he has chosen to stay with Titan Media."

Gage is a porn biz Hall of Famer and directed the legendary erotic trilogy "L.A. Tool & Die," "El Paso Wrecking Corp." and "Kansas City Trucking Co." in the 1970s. He returned to adult in 2001 following a break of nearly two decades.

Earlier this year, Titan Media won its second XBIZ Award as GLBT Studio of the Year. For domestic and international wholesale inquiries, email Wholesale@titanmedia.com, or call (800) 360-7204.
