Porno goes 3D


Imagine "Sex And Zen" in 3D!

10 Aug – A filmmaking father-and-son team from Hong Kong have laid claim to the world's first IMAX-3D porno release, entitled "3D Sex & Zen: Extreme Ecstasy".

Said to be loosely based on Li Yu's 17th century classical Chinese erotic literature "The Carnal Prayer Mat", this HK $20 million 3D re-update of the 1991 HK classic erotica will star Japanese AV actresses Yukiko Suo and Saori Hara opposite Hong Kong-based Japanese male model Hiro Hayama. The film will reportedly chronicle the adventures of a young man who, after being introduced to the erotic world of a duke, realises his ex-wife is the love of his life and features "orgies, swinging and some very graphic sex scenes."

The Sunday Morning Post reported that Stephen Siu Sr. and Jr. have even gone as far as to tell the paper they have forsaken the lucrative key Mainland market (in which blocks by the authorities can be expected) and are moving in on closing deals with other markets including Japan, Korea, Southeast Asia and some Hong Kong pay-per-view TV channels.

Siu Sr. is credited as being responsible for the Golden Harvest-distributed "Sex and Zen" (1991) starring Amy Yip and Laurence Ng which grossed over HK $20 million and held the record for the highest-grossing Category III movie (HK equivalent to the US NC-17 rating) for almost 20 years at the Hong Kong box office. The now cult classic was widely regarded to have launched a wave of CAT III erotica in the 90s, including its own sequels, one of which featured sultry Taiwan sex kitten Shu Qi, who has gone mainstream since.

Online news are also abuzz with word that Italian schlock maestro Tinto Brass has announced he would produce a 3D remake of his 1979 sex staple "Caligula", while porn giant Hustler was reported to be planning a porno spoof of James Cameron's 3D sci-fi 'Avatar', the world's highest-grossing movie of all time.
