Axel Braun Bites Into 3D 'Dracula' for Hustler

CANOGA PARK, Calif.—Workhorse director Axel Braun adds yet another big-scale project to his 2011 slate with This Ain't Dracula XXX 3D, due to be released by Hustler Video next fall.

"We've been working on Dracula for quite a while, but I wanted to make sure we had the perfect locations and the right team in place," Braun told AVN. "Luckily Hustler's president Michael Klein is a firm believer in quality, and made it possible for me to take on this ambitious project with the full support of the company."

"It's going to be a masterpiece," Hustler creative director Drew Rosenfeld said. "We're not just making porn anymore. With the introduction of our new 3D camera, bigger budgets, and the overwhelmingly large caliber of theatrically talented performers, we're discovering that we have the ability for not just pornography, but sensual and erotic filmmaking. Everyone is eager to know what the future of porn will be. This is it."

Added Braun, "Don't expect a campy movie; with Dracula, I'm going to exploit the sexual components of Bram Stoker's powerful story, while keeping all the drama, the suspense and the thrills."

This Ain't Dracula XXX 3D is scheduled to go into production in late April for fall release on DVD and Blu-ray.
