Chatsworth, Calif. — Exquisite Films announces the casting of adult superstar Chanel Preston as Lara Croft in the upcoming parody of “Tomb Raider.” Directed by Jordan Septo, Tomb Raider XXX: An Exquisite Films Parody begins filming mid December. A 2012 XBIZ Awards nominee for Female Performer of the Year, Chanel Preston will tackle the year’s most coveted role in adult entertainment.

“Lara Croft is the ultimate action role,” exclaims Chanel Preston. “With all the buzz surrounding the part, I’m honored Exquisite Films chose me. Croft is a strong, iconic character within the gaming community made even more popular by Angelina Jolie, who I love. I’m excited to portray the same combination of sexy and badass.”

Jordan Septo (American Dad XXX and Saturday Night Fever XXX) says, “After an extensive search for our Lara Croft, we made the decision to cast Chanel Preston. Chanel has proven herself time and time again for Exquisite Films and myself. Besides her strong resemblance to the character, her amazingly strong abilities in both acting and performing make her the obvious choice. We couldn’t be any happier.”

Chanel Preston is noted for some of the most acclaimed roles in Exquisite Films’ bestselling movies of the year. The stunning brunette lassoed villains as Wonder Woman in the award-winning The Justice League of Porn Star Heroes: An Extreme Comixxx Parody and played the Black Widow in Iron Man XXX: An Extreme Comixxx Parody. Chanel also donned a pair of Ray-Bans and a suit for her role as Ms. Orange in Rezervoir Doggs: An Exquisite Films Parody.

In a review of Rezervoir Doggs, AVN’s Peter Warren states Chanel handles the role of Ms. Orange “prodigiously, truly transcending what any adult actress should really ever be expected to be capable of.” Hank Fontaine of calls Chanel’s performance “notable.” He writes, “Ms. Orange is the other bright spot in Rezervoir Doggs, as far as I’m concerned. Chanel Preston doesn’t attempt to play the original actor’s version of a respective character; rather, she plays the character herself.” Additionally, reviewer Sean DPS shouts out to Chanel for her “great performance.”
