NEW YORK CITY — Production and distribution house Lucas Entertainment has wrapped principal photography on "Men of Israel," the first all-male blue movie shot on location in the country with an all-Israeli cast.

"Men of Israel" was directed by performer and Lucas Entertainment principal Michael Lucas and videographer mr. Pam.

"The crew was on location for over a month, scouting and shooting an extensive amount of footage for the film," a studio rep said. The new film "captures not only the irreproachable, physical beauty found in each and every Israeli, but also the unique and wondrous allure of the country itself."

"The exotic backdrops for many of the sex scenes eclectically range from the pristine desert cliffs of the Dead Sea and ancient ruins near Jerusalem dating back over a millennium, to avant-garde skyscraper condos in the metropolis of Tel Aviv."

In the 11-year run of his company, Lucas said he is most proud of the "Men of Israel" shoot.

"I firmly believe that it will bring awareness to all that Israel has to offer and will bring thousands of gay tourists to its numerous beaches and resorts. Based on all the press we have received from the Israeli media, this movie will be a milestone for the country. It's amazing to see all the anticipation this project has created both in the United States and abroad," he said.

The company will parcel out photo galleries, outtakes and BTS footage over the next several weeks on the soon-to-be-launched promotional microsite, MenOfIsraelXXX.com.

In the meantime, they will began streaming five hardcore vignettes from "Men of Israel" online on July 6 in advance of a wholesale-retail release on July 22.

The eight-member cast includes freshly recruited local talent Jonathan Agassi, Avi Dar, Matan Shalev and Naor Tal.

As well, a forthcoming edition of the studio's "Michael Lucas' Auditions" pro/am series, set for release in early September, will feature footage shot in Israel.
