HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — Smash Pictures, which is best known for its niche lineup of hardcore titles, has hired “gonzo king” Jim Powers to direct the feature movie “Friends & Family.”

“I chose Jim for his great scripts and because he took the time to intertwine and develop each character to make a fun porn plot for ‘Friends & Family,’” said Stuart Wall, Smash Pictures’ vice president. “Plus he’s going to really bring the sex to life.”

In “Friends & Family” adult star Lisa Ann plays the role of a mother hooking up with her daughter’s friend, played by Georgia Jones. The stories of other naughty family-and-friends relationships also are weaved into the plot.

“People are unaware that Jim Powers’ education and background was in making movies during film school,” Wall said. “He’s a storyteller and that’s exactly what we want to do with this movie is to create a real story but with the type of sex that only Jim Powers delivers.”

Wall said that because the title will be included in the Adam & Eve catalog, some of the rough, violent sex elements typical in Powers’ films will be replaced in favor of stronger sex acts.

“We won’t have any sexual violence or really rough stuff because that’s not what we do here at Smash,” he said. “However, Jim brings a dirty sense of hardcore every time he picks up a camera and that’s exactly what we want to combine with the story.”

Carolyn Reese, Katie St. Ives, Miko Sinz, Ashylnn Rae, James Dean, Evan Stone, Randy Spears, Prince and America’s favorite porn virgin Mallory Rae Murphy, round out the cast of “Family & Friends.”

Powers will continue to shoot for his own companies, including Immoral Productions.

“I look forward to making this movie with Smash and don’t worry, I’ll push things a little bit,” Powers said.

“Friends & Family” will street in March.

Smash Pictures’ “The Divorcee” is in stores this month.
