LOS ANGELES—Kay Brandt will begin principal photography on her next feature for Adam & Eve this weekend, tapping Britney Amber and Derrick Pierce for the lead roles.
Titled Naked, the romantic drama focuses on Cadence (Amber) and Jackson (Pierce), who meet while filming a survival-style, reality TV show and fall for each other. Jackson is a professional outdoorsman who teaches survival tactics, while Cadence is a part-time bank manager who also has survival skills.
“Britney and Derrick play the survivalists who get hired to be on the show and they meet when they’re naked and afraid,” Brandt says. “Through the challenge they find they have a certain amount of chemistry and connection with each other and after the show they can’t get each other off of their minds.
“Britney’s character was totally honest and up front about her vanilla boyfriend and fiancee, while Derrick’s character was not honest at all. The twist is he’s actually in a polyamorous relationship… He paints himself to be a wilderness man, a lone wolf who lives by his own rules, but he’s anything but that.”
When Cadence and Jackson reconnect after the show she finds out he wasn’t who he said he was, Brandt reveals. The supporting cast includes Chanel Preston, Mia Li, Small Hands, Ryan Driller, Donnie Rock and Logan Long with Joe Filippone in a non-sex role.
Li, Small Hands and Long play the production crew for the reality show—Li is the producer; Rock is Cadence’s fiancee; and Preston and Driller’s characters are in the poly-relationship with Jackson.
Brandt says Pierce, a 2017 nominee for Male Performer of the Year and Best Supporting Actor with more than 1000 credits since 2004, is a natural for this role.
“He just really stands out to me as that guy,” Brandt tells AVN. “He’s got that rugged, lone wolf, enigmatic sort of look to him. Ultimately, I really thought that he was best. And in real life Britney shoots a bow and arrow and she hunts and she is proficient at shooting guns. She actually auditioned for me for this. I auditioned several girls and she was by far best suited for the role.”
Amber has racked up more than 480 film credits since debuting in 2008.
As with all her movies Brandt wrote the screenplay for Naked. The seasoned author is also in the process of writing a novel with the same characters, noting the story has the potential for a trilogy.
Brandt’s latest movie, Adventures With the Baumgartners, will begin an exclusive VOD run with on Tuesday. That title is the sequel to the 2016 hit Babysitting the Baumgartners, starring Anikka Albrite, Mick Blue and Sara Luvv, which was adapted from Selena Kitt’s notorious best-selling novel and became the No. 1 film on HotMovies last year.
“The most amazing thing about making books into movies is we reached an entirely different audience,” Brandt says. “They bought Babysitting the Baumgartners entirely out of curiosity. They wanted to see a book they love brought to life. We have proof of this from Facebook and Twitter posts from women who admit to never having bought an adult movie until Baumgartners.”
In 2016 she also produced and directed Forked, a hardcore reality-style porn movie which was framed around a cooking show. Brandt has produced and directed more than 40 movies since 2009 and is also a bestselling author on Amazon.com with 17 erotic novels.
“I’m always striving to be original and cutting edge,” she says.
