VENICE, Calif.—Fresh off his recent AVN win, director Barrett Blade returns to full production this week, shooting his latest feature for Adam & Eve called Untamed Heart. The romantic drama centers around Anikka Albrite, a love-struck girl from a life of privilege who must chose between two amazing men from very different worlds. Torn between James Deen and Tommy Gunn, Anikka must decide if she will sacrifice the security she's always known or pass up the only chance for adventure and freedom she's ever had.

“The story really resonated with me,” Barrett admits. “It's a compelling drama that hits hard. I was really drawn in by the conflict between the two male characters, the biker bad boy and the rich kid. I particularly liked the fact that both were great guys from different circumstances, and that they both deeply loved her. There's this almost electric tension between all the actors and it really cranks up the heat in the scenes. I know my audience will feel it too.”

Untamed Heart is just the start for Blade, who already has several more projects lined up for February including a big budget feature for Wicked starring Kaylani Lei.

“I don't want to give too much away,” Blade insists, “but I can say the story has to do with a rock band touring and life on the road, which I know something about from my days in the music industry.”
