Five More Ready to Make a Porno

ON

The Weinstein Company and Dimension Films have announced additional cast members joining Seth Rogen (Knocked Up, Superbad) in writer/director Kevin Smith’s and producer Scott Mosier’s Zack & Miri Make a Porno. Elizabeth Banks (The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Invincible) will star opposite Rogen as Miri.

Joining the cast are Craig Robinson (“The Office”), Traci Lords (Crybaby), Katie Morgan (HBO’s “Katie Morgan: A Porn Star Revealed”), Ricky Mabe (ABC Family’s “Beautiful People”), Jeff Anderson (Clerks II) and Jason Mewes (Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back). The announcement was made today by Bob Weinstein and Harvey Weinstein, co-chairmen of The Weinstein Company and Dimension Films.

Zack and Miri are two lifelong friends who are deep in debt and enlist the help of their friends to make a porno movie for some quick cash. But as everybody starts “doing” everybody, Zack and Miri realize that they may have more feelings for each other than they previously thought.

The movie begins shooting on January 16, 2008 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Zack & Miri Make a Porno marks the latest collaboration between Bob and Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Smith and producer Scott Mosier who have created many successful and popular films over the past 13 years including Clerks, Clerks II, Chasing Amy, Dogma and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back.

Michael Cole, co-head of production, and Carla Gardini, senior vice president of production, will oversee the project on behalf of TWC and Dimension Films.
