LOS ANGELES -- Director Axel Braun announced today that he has started pre-production on "Star Wars XXX: A Porn Parody," to be exclusively distributed by Vivid Entertainment.

The ambitious project will mark Vivid’s first foray into the increasingly popular 3D format, and is set for release in September 2011.

“I really want to take my time on this one,” Braun said. “Every detail needs to be exactly right and I want to make sure the legions of fans of the original movies are not disappointed.”

Braun told XBIZ that a teaser will be available in the next few weeks. "We'll see if Han Solo really shot first and if Chewbacca will get lucky," he quipped.

“Axel definitely knows how to please the fans,” said Steven Hirsch, founder/co-chairman of Vivid. “His attention to detail and his respect for the source material put his parodies in a class by themselves and we are absolutely thrilled to distribute another one of his outstanding productions.”

Braun also noted that “Superman XXX: A Porn Parody” will begin shooting in August.
