Joanna Angel Cast in Mainstream Indie Film

LAS VEGAS — Producer/performer/director Joanna Angel has joined the cast of "Haunting Kira," a new independent horror film currently in preproduction. Angel will play a character named Cindy Sinn who seduces another female character in the stall of a bar bathroom.

"Could we do a Sin City zombie film without at least one porn star?" producer Chad Clinton Freeman said. "Seriously though, Joanna Angel is a perfect fit for our film. 'Haunting Kira' is an exploration into diversity, individuality and identity and she's an entrepreneur that got where she is by doing things her own way."

"Haunting Kira," which calls itself a “Women in Horror” production, tells the story of a ghost that has reanimated a rotting corpse and roams the streets of Las Vegas.

The cast of the film includes Rachel Grubb ("Strip Club Slasher"), Kathleen Kinmont ("Bride of Re-Animator"), Monique Dupree ("Skeleton Key 2"), Donna Hamblin ("Killer Biker Chicks") and Ari Lehman, who played Jason Voorhees in the original 1980 "Friday the 13th." Writer and director of the project is special effects makeup artist Teresa Fahs.

"As those who know my art work can attest, I'm committed to realism," Fahs said. "So when it came to casting the right actress for our hot girl-on-girl sex scene, Joanna was the natural choice. I'm delighted to be working on this project with yet another free-thinking, gutsy woman that I genuinely respect."

Angel is the cofounder of and has appeared in more than 60 adult productions since starting in 2005.

Production dates for "Haunting Kira" have not been announced.
