CANOGA PARK, Calif. — Hustler Video has selected XBIZ Award winner Axel Braun to direct its upcoming 3D parody "This Ain’t Avatar XXX 3D."

Braun and Hustler Video have a long history of collaboration including the films “This Ain’t Star Trek XXX 1” and "2," “This Ain’t Beverly Hills 90210 XXX” and the popular “Nailin’ Palin” series.

The director said he is now setting his sights on the most ambitious project he and Hustler have ever undertaken.

“This is the most preparation I’ve ever done for a film. This project has been in development since December. I’ve worked closely with Roger Krypton on the script, and storyboarding has been completed. I have looked at the various 3D acquisition systems and decided on one that I feel best suits the demands of adult filmmaking while providing the highest quality stereoscopic images," Braun said.

He added, " A post production workflow needed to be designed and tested from the ground up before I was happy with moving forward."

Construction of the colossal and intricate sets has begun at Hustler Video’s sound stages, according to the company.

“We’re used to creating fantasies here at Hustler,” said Drew Rosenfeld, Hustler Video’s creative director. “But now we’re creating a whole fantasy world. On top of that we have to design and build this world to play in 3D. I love a challenge!”

More information and casting call details will be announced soon, Hustler said.
