CANOGA PARK, Calif. — Wicked Pictures announced that director Brad Armstrong has begun pre-production on "Men In Black: A Hardcore Parody."
The director’s initial entry into the parody genre, "The Rocki Whore Picture Show: A Hardcore Parody," recently received numerous nominations for the XBIZ Awards, making it Wicked's most critically successful film of 2011.
Drawing its inspiration from Barry Sonnenfeld’s iconic 1997 science fiction comedy, Armstrong’s big-budget satire is being crafted with the same attention to detail that made his homage to "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" an across-the-board hit. From references to Arquillian Battle Cruisers to out-of-this-world hardware like the Corillian Death Ray, everything fans enjoyed about the original will be present in the director’s latest production, the company said.
Armstrong’s avowed fidelity to the original has already begun attracting high-profile talent, including retired adult film star Randy Spears. A devoted buff of the 1997 Academy Award-winning original, the gifted actor is returning to the screen to portray Tommy Lee Jones’ Kevin Brown, the mysterious but ramrod-straight man of action better known simply as “Agent K.” A no-nonsense company man, Brown is an operative within the “Men In Black,” a secret organization without government ties whose sole directive is to turn our planet into a "neutral zone" for aliens, whom they disguise as humans so they may exist on Earth undetected.
In other casting news, Wicked Girl Alektra Blue has been cast as Lara Flynn Boyle’s “Serleena,” the shape-shifting Kylothian queen from "Men In Black 2" who resembles a hydra when not disguised in human form.
At press time, the filming of "Men In Black: A Hardcore Parody" is scheduled for early 2012.
