VENICE, Calif. — Director Dana Vespoli announced that her Evil Angel feature, "Hollywood Babylon” is set for release on April 30.

The film stars Sovereign Syre in her first four boy/girl scenes, along withDana DeArmond, Valentina Nappi, Steven St. Croix, James Deen, Ramon Nomar, Ryan Driller, Michael Vegas and JM Darling.

“It was a tremendous honor to shoot Sovereign's first boy/girl scenes, as well as direct her in the lead acting role,” Vespoli said. “She is an amazing actress, so it made sense to showcase her acting ability as well as her powerhouse sexual skills in a feature rather than a wall-to-wall showcase.

“This movie is a love letter to this town, and to all the hopes, dreams, majesty and horror held within its palm tree lined celluloid, stucco walls and our collective subconscious.”

Vespoli noted that she and Syre have worked together several times and the former also starred in her lesbian feature, “She’s Come Undone.”

“It was immediately clear to me that she has an extraordinary depth and presence,” Vespoli added. “Sovereign has a lot to offer as a performer — she is a captivating beauty, no doubt, but she is most interesting to me when she is bringing a character to life. She is whip smart, has a great deal of empathy, and fearlessly commits to whatever role you give to her.”

The jump to boy/girl scenes was something Syre had been anticipating for nearly a year, according to Vespoli.

“Over that past two years Dana and I have worked together on several projects, so it seemed only natural when I was ready to crossover that I would go to her first,” Syre said. “I feel blessed to have forged a creative bond with someone as talented and determined as Dana; her features for Evil Angel, her darkly erotic fantasy life, have long captured my own imagination and making this movie gave me the opportunity to finally be a part of her vision. I can't think of a bigger honor as a performer than to have a director write an entire movie around you and to trust you with not one, but five scenes."

Syre also praised her male co-stars.

“I wanted something special for my first time and James [Deen] was keen to really push things as far as I wanted to go. Steven St. Croix is one of the best actors working in adult today, he has such gravity and swagger, the movie wouldn't be the same with anyone else,” Syre said.

Deen added, "It is always a honor to be involved in any Dana Vespoli masterpiece. Her vision and skills are those of an incomparable variety."
