March 9, 2011
ComingSoon.net talked exclusively to Carla Gugino, Malin Akerman and Emmanuelle Chriqui about starring in writer/director Sebastian Gutierrez's Elektra Luxx, opening in theaters on March 11.
In the film, recently retired adult film superstar Elektra Luxx (Gugino) is pregnant with the child of late rock star Nick Chapel. She is trying to make ends meet by teaching a community college sex education class aimed at housewives when a figure from her past, flight attendant Cora (Marley Shelton), approaches her with a proposition. In exchange for the (stolen) lyrics to Nick Chapel's last record, all of which is about Elektra, Cora needs Elektra to seduce her fiancee. Elektra reluctantly agrees to do this favor, setting in motion a series of hilarious events which will see her come face to face with detectives, sex bloggers, emotionally unstable neighbors and the Virgin Mary herself as she wrestles with the prospect of motherhood and tries to become a person of substance.
