Benjamin Bradley Set to 'Tread Heavy'

HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — Benjamin Bradley is set to "Tread Heavy," his first blue movie in three years. The fan-favorite performer headlines the all-sex feature for directrix Chi Chi LaRue's Rascal Video label, via production and distribution house Channel 1 Releasing.

Bradley initially filmed a handful of features in 2005-06, then left erotica to pursue a modeling career that included a stint as the face of Ginch Gonch underwear.

He is joined in "Tread Heavy" by fellow C1R exclusives Jeremy Bilding, Johnny Hazzard, Blake Riley and newcomer Nelson Troy, with Brock Armstrong and Rod Daily. The film's moody leather and bondage theme capitalizes on the current trend in gay adult towards fetish play of all flavors.

Two re-releases also are on the C1R new release docket.

"Black Brooklyn Beef" was directed by Deniro Black and originally released by All Worlds Video in 2000. Costars include Crown Royal, Darius, Dice, Mike, Quest, Red Hook, Tyrone and Willie.

Director Black "has brought together a group of his big, black buddies to a house in Brooklyn for some anonymous sexual encounters," the studio said. "Some of these streets thugs may be 'gay for pay' but they sure get down and dirty on some really big dicks in the Big Apple."

The latest Catalina Video re-release is "Cruise Control," originally produced in 1993 and starring matinee-idol Derek Cruise.

Joining Cruise for director Chet Thomas are Scott Baldwin, Scott Hardman, Brock Maxon, Josh Ryder and Dallas Taylor. Plot revolves around a "sexual surrogate" hired by Cruise to spice up his blah bedroom moves.

All three films will be released April 14. For wholesale-retail information, visit C1R online or call (800) 997-9071.
