LAS VEGAS—Zalman King was known for directing and producing such hit movie and TV projects as Two Moon Junction, 9 ½ Weeks, Wild Orchid and The Red Shoe Diaries. In 2012, he passed after making his last opus, Pleasure or Pain.

Kayla-Jane Danger (pictured) wrote an adult novel based on the screenplay that premiered last year on Amazon as an eBook under her nom de plume, Kayla Jane. The eBook is also now available on Smashwords.

And this April, the movie is premiering exclusively on Cinemax with a total of 10 airings April 5-24 on Cinemax East, Cinemax West and Max Latino East. Starring Kayla Jane, along with Malena Morgan, Christos Vasilopoulos and Elle Alexandra, the erotic drama is about a beautiful, young designer lured into a torrid and intense affair with a charismatic and successful man.

“I’m so glad the movie is finally being released—it was an honor and definitely a pleasure to work with Zalman King,” said Danger. “Although I have written other eBooks, this was definitely a work of love, in Zalman’s honor.”
