Short Takes: Rob Romoni Gets Bloggy With It…and More

If you can’t get enough of Rob Romoni and his hysterical tweets on Twitter, now the veteran porn superstar has his very own Web site. “Rob Romoni: Truth and Game” has just launched, and in an exclusive interview with VincentLambert.com, comeback kid Romoni says that the new project is simply the result of supply and demand. “I have been asked by many fans to start a blog,” Rob says, “so they can always have a central location to comment and follow my career and life. I thought it was about time to begin one for them and for myself, so I can express my thoughts on the industry and my personal life.” The blog will feature entries about Romoni’s numerous films, live appearances and upcoming events. There will also be news (such as his recent decision to sign with FabScout Entertainment), photos, music, his notorious Twitter updates, a chat room and video. “Since my return to the industry, I have worked with Falcon Studios, RVD Films, Massive Studios, Suite 703 and Channel 1 Releasing,” he adds, “so there will be much to discuss and comment on when these projects are all out.” We can’t wait to hear what he’ll say next!

Jeffries, who has appeared in many movies as a model, is now an award-winning director whose films include Little Big League, Bringing Out Brother and Chosen. “Doug has been booking the biggest names in the business at the biggest clubs in the world for so long now,” DV8 owner Jason Sechrest says, “he’s the best that there is. It’s exciting too because the DV8 Casting boys will be promoting their work with Channel 1 Releasing at these events worldwide, so it’s a great synergy for both companies.” For a look at DV8’s roster of models, visit DV8Casting.com.…Well, it took three years, but Lucas Entertainment is in the clear following a court battle over one of its films. In February 2007, International Media Films (IMF) filed a lawsuit against Lucas alleging that its film Michael Lucas’ La Dolce Vita violated IMF’s claimed copyright of Federico Fellini’s movie and associated trademarks. IMF subsequently sought an injunction against distribution of Lucas’ award-winning version, but the court ruled against IMF, allowing Lucas to continue distribution and sales of its film. Now a judge has dismissed IMF’s entire lawsuit, concluding that the “plaintiff has failed to show that it has sufficient admissible evidence from which a reasonable fact finder could conclude that it was the copyright owner of the Fellini film.” Lucas Entertainment president and CEO Michael Lucas says, “I’m proud that my company won a case of such magnitude. We believed strongly that we hadn’t done anything wrong even before we learned, through the meticulous, extensive and expensive fieldwork of our lawyers, that IMF doesn’t even own the movie it went to court over.” For more, visit LucasEntertainment.com.
