LOS ANGELES — Bluebird Films began its 2011 U.S. shoot schedule this week with "Katwoman," the studio’s follow-up to 2010’s award-winning "Bat FXXX: Dark Night."
It plans to complete three feature titles within the next six weeks in addition to a variety of scenes for titles to be wrapped later this summer.
New Bluebird exclusive Dylan Ryder star as Katwoman, the sexy feline who takes on the twisted Jo-Kerr and his pretty pet Jo-Kette. Bluebird Films owner Paul Chaplin will reprise his role as The Jo-Kerr with Glambird Gemma Massey joining the cast as the villain’s insane enamorata.
Upcoming Bluebird titles also include "NikitaXXX," "Nip/Fuck" and "Baberunners." The company is working with four in-house directors, including Martha Washington, Marc Twain, Nicholas Steele and Chaplin.
Steele won the 2011 XBIZ Award for Director of the Year - Individual Project for helming "Bat FXXX."
The U.K.-based Chaplin this year is continuing to work as a producer/writer/director/musician/photographer and clothing designer, regularly operating in both the mainstream and adult worlds. Chaplin pens a weekly column called “Paul Chaplin’s PC World” in The Saturday Sport, a UK newspaper.
Today Chaplin will join Bluebird stars Natasha Marley and Massey for an appearance on Playboy Radio’s "Night Calls" with Nicki Hunter, live at around 5 p.m. PST. The show can be heard on channel 99 on both XM and Sirius. Listeners may phone in their questions and comments by calling 877-205-9796.
On Friday night, Ryder will be ringside in Las Vegas when her sisters Jillian and Jocelyn Lybarger compete in an MMA Tuff-N-Uff event, sponsored by Bluebird Films and DylanRyder.com. The event will be aired on Las Vegas Television Channel 3 and fans from around the globe can watch the fights live at GoFightLive.com or TuffNUff.net.
