LOS ANGELES — Director Axel Braun and Vivid Entertainment announced a new lineup of parodies today that includes spoofs on Elvis Presley, the Beatles and the Rat Pack.

Braun said, "The first one up is 'Elvis XXX: A Porn Parody,' which we'll shoot in November so we can have it in stores by Jan. 8, which is Elvis' birthday.”

The director added, "I'm a huge Elvis fan. Elvis had a great sense of humor, so I'd like to think he would actually have plenty of fun watching my movie spoof."

Adult veteran Dale DaBone has been tapped to play Elvis at various stages of his life in the new feature and will sing two songs.

DaBone tweeted today, "I can't believe I'm playing the role of Elvis Presley for Axel Braun ... the parts I've gotten this year have been amazing. Speechless now."

Braun said starlet Andy San Dimas will play Priscilla Presley. The movie will also feature portrayals of Marilyn Monroe, James Dean and boxing legend Muhammad Ali, played by Tyler Knight.

Braun will then shoot the previously announced “The Godfather XXX” in December and in early 2011 will produce “The Beatles XXX” followed by “The Rat Pack XXX.”

The Beatles parody will spotlight the rockers throughout their careers and will include fictitious interviews with friends and family.

The “Rat Pack XXX” show will unfold over a late night, booze-fueled poker game between Frank, Sammy, and Dean as they reminisce about their lives. Actors playing Ava Gardner, Mia Farrow, Jerry Lewis and Kim Novak will be featured, along with a couple of songs, and plenty of slapstick and chatter, according to Braun.

"Axel has a true gift for parody and we are delighted to be working with him on distribution of his movies," said Steven Hirsch, founder/co-chairman of Vivid.

Hirsch added, "Because he is also a fan, he makes sure that his movies are of the highest quality."

Braun said the new titles complement productions already scheduled for 2011 that include “Star Wars XXX: A Porn Parody” and spoofs of the popular TV shows “Law & Order,” “Starsky & Hutch” and “The Addams Family,” as well as movie classics “Grease” and “A Clockwork Orange.”
