VAN NUYS, Calif. — Digital Playground has announced plans to release a big-budget feature called "Fighters" on Sept. 27.
Conceived by Digital Playground's founder Joone and written and directed by Robby D., "Fighters" will five of the company's current contract girls.
The story follows Jesse Jane and Kayden Kross, two beautiful, passionate girls from opposite walks of life that come together in a battle of lust and unyielding wills to fight it out in the ring.
Riley Steele plays Jane's streetwise naughty sister and Stoya is Kross's equally privileged best friend. And BiBi Jones plays the role of the new girl in town who sleeps with Jane's dad, creating even more fighting. The sparring both in and out of the ring leads to some fierce sexual encounters, the company said.
Jane and Kross both underwent months of boxing training and fight choreography for their roles. Jane said "Fighters" was the hardest movie she's ever done.
"I had to train in boxing for three months before we started shooting and gained some serious muscle weight," she said. "It took a lot of hard work and commitment, but it was worth it. I think this is the best I've ever done in a movie, and I can't wait to see it."
"I've never actually immersed myself in a role so deeply," Kross added. "Jesse and I had to undergo a physical and mental transformation for our characters to be authentic and I hope the fans like what they see."
Joone remarked, "When creating a film on the scale of 'Fighters,' I knew it would be important for the girls to be convincing as boxers. 'Fighters' really portrays a side of Jesse Jane and Kayden Kross that audiences have never seen before and is without a doubt the best performance of Jesse's career."
Director Robby D., who recently helmed "Babysitters 2" and prior to that "Top Guns," said, "I really felt strongly that this story needed to be told. So often in the adult industry, we get cast in a negative light with regards to the treatment of women. This story is about the empowerment of women and the ability for people in general to overcome obstacles in their lives and regain control. There is also a lot of hot, dirty sex and some great cat fights."
Company president Samantha Lewis remarked, "Robby D. has once again created and directed an amazing ensemble cast of strong, sexy and confident female characters. Robby's ability to raise the bar with every feature is not surprising because of his dedication to his work. We are extremely fortunate to have one of the very best directors, if not the best in the adult entertainment industry, leading the DP team."
