Short Takes: Robert Van Damme Gets New Management…and More
More news from the Robert Van Damme comeback! The porn superstar has informed VincentLambert.com exclusively that he has decided to sign a management deal with superagent David Forest. Van Damme, who has worked with Fabscout in the past, says that he’s ready for “a new start, some fresh air. I know David for a long time, and we have worked together before.” Forest, who is back in a big way with the recent signings of both Jason Adonis and Antton Harri to his Premiere Artists agency, tells us that he will be handling all bookings for Van Damme. “Robert still wants to do roles for other studios besides his own,” Forest says, “plus he loves performing live and is so great at it.” Van Damme will collaborate with Forest for a night of Cocktails With the Stars at Micky’s in late September. He also recently formed a new company, Robert Van Damme Presents (which is in no way affiliated with his former RVD Films), for the release of Dirty Muscle, a movie he filmed last year with director Gino Colbert. “RVD Films is history,” Van Damme adds, “and I need to move on. Dirty Muscle will come out first on VOD and then be distributed on DVD by Boulevard in the fall.” The film will also be available on the stud’s newly relaunched RobertVanDamme.net. He promises that it will be “the best muscle movie on the market. Not too many producers could put this together.” And with a cast that includes Matthew Rush (in his farewell pornformance!?), Tyler Saint, Rob Romoni, Josh Griffin (also retired), Skye Woods and Paul Stag (on the receiving end of a gang bang), we see what he means!…Speaking of Video On Demand, Channel 1 Releasing has announced a new feature on its Web site called Cock Watch that will bring fans the hottest new content only days after its been shot. Internet subscribers will get to see exclusive scenes in streaming video before they are available anywhere else. The feature kicks off with an all-new duo featuring C1R exclusive Brent Everett and Jake Lyons, and a new scene will be added weekly. C1R is also teasing a new Web soap opera (most likely penned by C1R publicist Jason Sechrest) that will include big helpings of both sex and drama (shades of Jet Set Men’s recent VOD entry Wet Palms?). In the meantime, check out Cock Watch at C1R.com.…Meanwhile, on your phone, Pantheon Productions has announced the launch of a mobile version of its HotOlderMale daddy site. Pantheon has teamed up with Barcelona-based Spankmo Mobile to bring scenes featuring Zak Spears, Tim Kelly and Nick Moretti, among others, to your cell phone. “We know delivering to mobile devices is the wave of the future in the adult industry,” says Chris Roma, director of Pantheon. “Guys on the go can now view our content in a high-quality, easily accessible format wherever they are.” The new site can be accessed by using a mobile device and going to m.hotoldermale.com. And hang on for the mobile version of PantheonBear.com later this summer.
