News: Director Gino Colbert Pervs Out
One of gay porn’s premier auteurs is back! Not that he’s really been gone. It was announced last week that award-winning director Gino Colbert is helming the first release for straight production house Devil’s Film new gay imprint, Devil’s Male. The film is titled Perverts, and it consists of four short vignettes that were written and directed by Colbert. “I have been sort of semiretired,” Colbert exclusively tells VincentLambert.com, “but I agreed to get the ball rolling for Devil’s Film because its general manager, Eric Mann, and I are old buddies. We worked together at Leisure Time, a straight company where I produced John Wayne Bobbitt: Uncut. That movie went on to become one of the highest-grossing in straight porn history.”
That’s an impressive track record, and it sounds like Devil’s Film is happy with the results of the reunion. “It was only fitting that we create a quality gay line shot here by a great director like Gino,” Devil’s Film national sales manager Steve Volponi told AVN. (Devil’s Male plans to release at least six titles per year.)
Perverts stars another industry fave who has been MIA for a bit: Robert Van Damme! It also features Adam Russo, Gianni Luca, Troy Michaels, Tristan Matthews, Jared Michaels, Emilio Sands, John Marcus and Lex Sabre. “I think there’s opportunity in the gay market for us if it’s quality enough,” Volponi added. “Gino turns in a great product. He did a really good job. If you’re gonna do it, you might as well come out swinging.”
Perverts will street next week.
