Axel Braun to Hold 'Sleeping Beauty' Casting Call Sunday

LOS ANGELES—The first entry in the newly formed Wicked Fairy Tales imprint, Snow White XXX: An Axel Braun Parody, was released on DVD only two days ago, and it sold out its first replication run within 24 hours. Directed by four-consecutive-time AVN Director of the Year Axel Braun, the high-budget feature is a dark tale of betrayal, desire and malevolence based on the Brothers Grimm story.

“I'm happy to see that the distributors and retailers are supporting our new line,” said Wicked’s Steve Orenstein. “This is Axel's first movie for Wicked, and his foray into this new genre continues to show off his notorious attention to detail, which I'm sure will leave his fans wanting more.”

Featuring an all-star cast headlined by Wicked's own Jessica Drake in a career-defining turn as the Evil Queen, and Axel Braun Productions contract girl Riley Steele in the titular role, Snow White XXX: An Axel Braun Parody is a clear indication that the Fairy Tales genre fits adult moviemaking perfectly, so much that Braun is already working on a Sleeping Beauty parody—but don’t expect the director to deliver more of the same.

“Snow White and Sleeping Beauty are very similar fairy tales,” said Braun. “To make Sleeping Beauty XXX: An Axel Braun Parody stand out as a different film, we decided to shift gears, tonally, and give it an extremely different feel, choosing to dispense with a standard, linear narrative in exchange for something much more atmospheric. The script is terrific, and once again we have some incredible costumes. All we need now are the right actors to bring this to life.”

So who’s gonna play Aurora? Maleficent? The three good fairies? With most of the roles still up for grabs, Braun has decided to hold an open casting call this Sunday at 5 p.m. at the Wicked Pictures headquarters in Canoga Park. All agents are encouraged to send their best talent, both male and female, to read with the director. Needless to say, strong acting skills are a must.
