CANOGA PARK, Calif. – Mercenary Pictures has tapped performer/director Marco Banderas to helm the next installment of its Ebony XXX series. Banderas currently directs the popular Culos Gigantes and The Darkside of Marco Banderas for Mercenary, as well as Marco's Crazy Dreams for his own company, Hot Zone.

“I decided to release Ebony XXX 5 with a focus on black girls with gigantic asses,” said Mercenary owner Lexington Steele. “Marco knows how to capture large asses. The titles he directs for my company are the ones I enjoy the most. Culos Gigantes is one of our best selling series, so it made perfect sense to expand the titles directed by Marco.”

“I've always enjoyed working with Lex and besides my company, Mercenary is the only other I direct for,” said Banderas. “We have a great rapport and it's because we both want to do the best work on each project we take on. My love for big asses makes the Ebony XXX line a perfect fit and I look forward to bringing more volumes of this series to its fans.”

Ebony XXX 5 will be released in early 2008.
