While a few porn stars have had minor success in legit movie (Traci Lords probably being the most famous), James Deen (born Bryan Matthew Sevilla) is making his bid with the Canyons, which also stars Lindsay Lohan and Gus Van Sant. Bret Easton Ellis is behind the script, with Paul Schrader directing. Now a teaser trailer has emerged, suggesting this is a tale that will have a very grindhouse, sexploitation feel. Here’s the synopsis: ‘The Canyons is a contemporary L.A. noir from director Paul Schrader, writer Bret Easton Ellis, and producer Braxton Pope about the dangers of sexual obsession and ambition, both personally and professionally, among a group of young people in their 20′s and how one chance meeting connected to the past unravels all of their lives, resulting in deceit, paranoia, cruel mind games and ultimately violence.’ No release date is currently set.
