Digital Playground Raises 'Body Heat' With Big Fall Release

VAN NUYS, Calif.—Body heat is a familiar concept at Digital Playground. The adult studio is always seeking to raise audience temperatures with its releases, in line with the company promise: “hotter girls, higher quality.”

And Body Heat is also the name of Digital Playground’s most prominent fall 2010 release. The dramatic feature was helmed by not one but two of the studio’s directing talents: Joone and Robby D.

A few tantalizing details were released today by the studio, including the lineup of stars. Jesse Jane, Riley Steele, Raven Alexis, Kayden Kross and Katsuni will all be seen in the big-budget release. Body Heat is the first feature that Kayden Kross has done at the studio, and it's also the first time she has worked with all four of her contract sisters in an all-girl scene.

The production is amply stocked in the beefcake department as well, with Mick Blue, Scott Nails, Tommy Gunn and Evan Stone on board.

Described as “a cross between The Hurt Locker and Ladder 49,” says a company representative, Body Heat “is about firefighters and the relationships that bind them together and the trials and tribulations they face. It is filled with intense action, passion and love.”

As befits the studio that put out the special-effects-laden Pirates series, quality was a top priority for the moviemakers, and they brought in acting coaches and consultants to ensure the action was realistic. “The specialists we worked with were firefighters and explosives experts. We also hired an Oscar-winning costume designer. ... We tried to make this movie as authentic as possible," said the Digital Playground source.

Some scenes were shot in downtown Los Angeles, including a bomb explosion (supervised by the experts) and action in the same firehouse interior that was used in Ghost Busters.

Sound pretty exciting to us: a great cast, high production values, and a story line that should appeal to anybody who's ever imagined a hot session with a sexy hose jockey.
