Los Angeles – Adult powerhouse Wicked Pictures is pleased to announce that production has started on Barbarella XXX: An Axel Braun Parody, the first entry for Wicked Comix, a new imprint dedicated exclusively to comic book parodies. All Wicked Comix titles will be helmed by four-consecutive-time AVN Director of the Year Axel Braun.

Featuring an all-star cast headlined by Axel Braun Productions contract girl Riley Steele in the titular role and Wicked Girl Asa Akira as the Great Tyrant, Barbarella XXX is a sexy, tongue-in-cheek spoof of Jean-Claude Forest’s sci-fi comic strip. Just as in the 1968 Roger Vadim adaptation starring Jane Fonda, Barbarella travels the universe to prevent mad scientist Durand-Durand from bringing war to a peaceful galaxy…and has sex with just about anybody she encounters along the way.

“I’ve wanted to make this movie for a really long time, and with the recent news that Amazon has green-lit a Barbarella TV series, it felt like the timing was finally perfect,” says Braun. “Riley is absolutely perfect as Barbarella, and Asa as the Great Tyrant is just terrific. I think it’s a perfect way to launch Wicked Comix, and I haven’t done 60’s camp since Batman XXX, so I’m having a ball.”

Steele, who recently won the NightMoves Award for Best Body – Fans Choice, is thrilled about the project: “I’m such a huge fan of the original, I love Jane Fonda and that whole era, and the script is incredible! I’m so happy that Axel gave me the opportunity to play such an iconic role, and I’m especially galvanized because I get to finally have sex with Asa! This movie is a dream come true in so many ways!”

Braun’s latest undertaking is bringing fantasies to life for Ms. Akira (NightMoves Award winner, Best Body – Editor’s Choice) as well. ​ ​”When I watched Barbarella as a teenager, I had no idea that I’d one day be playing the porn version of The Great Tyrant! I’m so excited to be working with Axel again, now that we are both with Wicked Pictures. I can’t wait for the world to see all my elaborate costumes – his wardrobe team has really gone above and beyond. The best part though, for me, is that I get to have sex with both ABP contract girls in this movie – Riley and Aiden are both drop dead gorgeous, and I can’t wait to get my hands on them!”​​​

Riley and Asa will share the attention of Pygar, the blind angel played by Michael Vegas, in a torrid three-way scene, while Akira will also perform in a girl-girl scene and will get a chance to show her acting chops.
