Carla Gugino To Play A Porn Star
In Elektra Luxx with all-star cast

16 December 2008  |  Written by Helen O'Hara  

submit to reddit

Carla Gugino has signed on to star in Elektra Luxx, the sequel to an as-yet unreleased film from writer-director Sebastian Gutierrez. The good news for fanboys is that she's playing a porn star. We'll leave you boys alone for a moment, eh?

Everyone back? OK. The film's a sequel to Women in Trouble, an ensemble comedy about a day in the lives of 10 LA women. That also written and directed by Gutierrez and starring Gugino, along with Emmanuelle Chirqui, Adrianne Palicki, Marley Shelton, Connie Britton, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Simon Baker.

For Elektra Luxx, the story picks up following the same characters a month later, with Gugino's porn star Luxx finding her life in chaos when she discovers that she's pregnant. Timothy Olyphant, Alicia Silverstone and Justin Kirk have also signed on to appear.

Gutierrez previously wrote, er, Gothika and Snakes on a Plane, and probably found it relatively easy to hire Gugino since they're dating. In the meantime, fans can see her soon in Watchmen and/or Race to Witch Mountain.

RE: BEST. HEADLINE. EVER.
In fact, the only way it could be made better, is if you replaced the word "play" with "be". Perviness over. More
