Vanessa del Rio Biopic? Actress Has signed On?
As Seen on Global14.com :
The movie will chronicle the porn star’s career set against the backdrop of NYC’s then gritty organized crime-controlled Times Square, during the tumultuous 1970s & 1980s.
To be directed by Thomas Mignone, best known for his previous feature film ”On The Doll,” starring Brittany Snow and James Russo, as well as several award-winning music videos for bands like Slipknot, Mudvayne, System Of A Down, and Sepultura, the production has finally cast the actress who will play del Rio: Zulay Henao, who co-starred in Tyler Perry’s “The Single Moms Club.”
Also, as first reported by The Hollywood Reporter, Datari Turner will be one of the film’s producers, alongside Arthur Sarkissian.
In an era when the lines between pornography and mainstream celebrity are blurred, with sex tapes becoming launching pads for lucrative careers in the entertainment industry, porn icons of old like Vanessa del Rio would probably fare very well in this century.
She was huge (in more ways than one) in the 1970s and early 1980s, appearing in well over 100 porn flicks (softcore and hardcore) including ”Rear Busters,” “Afro Erotica,” and many more.
In fact, I’d say she was one of the business’ first real superstars.
