Hustler backs off plans to make porn parody of terrorist Osama bin Laden
Hustler announced May 18 that it was preparing an X-rated parody called “This Ain’t Bin Laden XXX.” It was supposed to be available on DVD over the summer.
In a statement at the time, Hustler Video Director of Operations Rob Smith said, “Oh yeah, we’re going there … We’re pretty sure from what we’ve heard that Bin Laden was a big fan of Hustler. He was looking at porn, now porn is looking at him. See, it all comes full circle.”
The news generated media coverage by Salon, Slog, TMR Zoo and other outlets.
The Hustler announcement followed reports that the U.S. military had found a stash of pornography at bin Laden’s hideaway in Pakistan. (See media coverage by New York Post, Gothamist, Salon and Mediaite.)
But Hustler never pulled the trigger on the production.
In an e-mail to Tech-media-tainment on Nov. 29, Smith wrote, “All I know is this title has not been produced yet. I cannot say when or if it will be produced in the future. Sorry, that’s all the info I have.”
William & Kate porn parody also a no-go
Reports that Vivid Entertainment planned to release a movie based on the honeymoon of England’s Prince William and Kate Middleton have turned out to be false.
Gossip blog Hollywood Life said May 2 that Vivid was planning to film a royal porn parody.
“HollywoodLife.com has learned exclusively that look-alikes of William and Kate, as well as Prince Harry and Kate’s younger sister Pippa, will begin filming the X-rated feature later this year,” the blog said. “An insider at the studio tells us Harry and Pippa will ‘show up’ while their siblings are consummating their marriage, ‘and may even hook up.’”
But it was all just wishful thinking on their part.
Vivid spokesperson Jackie Martin in a Nov. 18 e-mail to Tech-media-tainment said Vivid never green-lighted a William & Kate movie.
“Vivid didn’t actually announce a William/Kate movie,” Martin wrote. “An item appeared on a gossip site saying that this was going to happen. It is still a possibility though a date has not yet been set.”
Actually there’s already been a porn parody of the royal wedding. A U.K. adult movie studio, Pure XXX Films, released a flick called “The Royal Romp” in April. (See articles by Porn Star Babylon and Fleshbot. Warning: Links may contain nudity and explicit content.)
Chilean miner porn parody fails to materialize
Another announced porn parody was to be based on the rescue of 33 Chilean miners who were trapped for more than 2 months in a mine in Copiapo. (See Wikipedia summary on the incident.)
AVN reported in November 2010 that a Chilean filmmaker planned to make a porn film on the rescue called “La Mina Se Comio los 33,” translated as “The Mine that Swallowed the 33.” The article notes that in southern Chile it is not uncommon for men to use the word “mina” to refer colloquially to young girls.
Since then, there hasn’t been a peep about the project.
Somebody must have come to their senses and decided this movie was a bad idea.
