Dana Vespoli Prepping Her Biggest Feature to Date: ‘Hollywood Babylon’

Movie Features Sovereign Syre’s First 5 Boy/Girl Scenes

VENICE, CA – Dana Vespoli’s string of hits is unparalleled in the industry today and she is currently finishing work on what may be the best movie of her career with Hollywood Babylon.

The movie stars Sovereign Syre and features her first five boy/girl scenes, which will make it one of the most-anticipated releases of the season. The movie also features Dana DeArmond, Valentina Nappi, Steven St. Croix, James Deen, Ramon Nomar, Ryan Driller, Michael Vegas and JM Darling. It will be released April 30.

“It was a tremendous honor to shoot Sovereign’s first boy/girl scenes, as well as direct her in the lead acting role,” Dana said. “She is an amazing actress, so it made sense to showcase her acting ability as well as her powerhouse sexual skills in a feature rather than a wall-to-wall showcase.

“This movie is a love letter to this town, and to all the hopes, dreams, majesty and horror held within its palm tree lined celluloid, stucco walls and our collective subconscious.”

Sovereign and Dana have worked together several times and the former also starred in Dana’s lesbian feature She’s Come Undone.

“It was immediately clear to me that she has an extraordinary depth and presence,” Dana said. “Sovereign has a lot to offer as a performer—she is a captivating beauty, no doubt, but she is most interesting to me when she is bringing a character to life. She is whip smart, has a great deal of empathy, and fearlessly commits to whatever role you give to her.”

The jump to boy/girl scenes was something Sovereign had been anticipating for nearly a year and she wouldn’t have put her debut into the hands of anyone else.

“Over that past two years Dana and I have worked together on several projects, so it seemed only natural when I was ready to crossover that I would go to her first,” Sovereign said. “I feel blessed to have forged a creative bond with someone as talented and determined as Dana; her features for Evil Angel, her darkly erotic fantasy life, have long captured my own imagination and making this movie gave me the opportunity to finally be a part of her vision. I can’t think of a bigger honor as a performer than to have a director write an entire movie around you and to trust you with not one, but five scenes.

“Working with James Deen was better than I could have ever hoped for,” she continued. “I wanted something special for my first time and James was keen to really push things as far as I wanted to go. Steven St. Croix is one of the best actors working in adult today, he has such gravity and swagger, the movie wouldn’t be the same with anyone else. Dana and I both wanted something that would stand on its own, with or without the cache of containing my first b/g scenes; we both thought that would be the best showcase for me as a performer and for her as a director and I think that’s what we accomplished with Hollywood Babylon. I’m very proud of this project and happy to have crossed over into a new genre. I hope to continue to have intense, amazing experiences and to share them with a whole new audience.”

Dana has already established herself as one of the best directors in the adult industry today with overwhelmingly-positive responses from both fans and critics, strong sales and several important awards like Director of the Year – Non-Feature Release for Girl/Boy (Dana Vespoli/Evil Angel) at the 2014 XBIZ Awards, and Best Director – Non-Parody (Editor’s Choice) at the 2013 NightMoves Awards. Those who have seen early edits of Hollywood Babylon are saying this could be the best of her career so far.

“It is always a honor to be involved in any Dana Vespoli masterpiece,” James Deen said. “Her vision and skills are those of an incomparable variety.”

Dana is nominated for Best Director (Non-Features) at the 2014 XRCO Awards. The show will be held April 16 at OHM nightclub at the Hollywood & Highland complex in Hollywood. For more information go to www.xrco.com.

Her next release is TS, I Love You (Evil Angel), which comes out this week. It is her first-ever TS movie.
