First Look: Carla Gugino as Pornstar Elektra Luxx

Not more than a few days after the news first hit that Carla Gugino had been cast in a film called Elektra Luxx, two photos of Gugino in costume/character have appeared online. On Monday night, Variety announced that Gugino was starring in the Elektra Luxx project from writer/director Sebastian Gutierrez. The project is a sequel to a film called Women in Trouble, which hasn't even been picked up for distribution yet. In both films, Gugino plays a pornstar named Elektra Luxx, apparently based on a real life pornstar, that has her life turned upside down when she becomes pregnant. Yea, you might want to take a look.

Apparently both of these photos are from Women in Trouble, which is actually an ensemble comedy about one day in the lives of 10 Los Angeles women. Thanks to both JoBlo and CHUD for the photos below.

Women in Trouble is already entirely finished, Elektra Luxx is currently filming, and another sequel, titled Women in Ecstasy, is also planned. Luxx also stars Tim Olyphant, Alicia Silverstone and Justin Kirk and includes many of the actors who are reprising their roles from the original, such as Emmanuelle Chriqui, Adrianne Palicki, Marley Shelton, Connie Britton, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Simon Baker. Carla Gugino, who has actually been acting since the late 80s, has been gaining a lot of popularity recently. She can be seen this upcoming year in The Unborn, Race to Witch Mountain, and Zack Snyder's Watchmen.

    "A real life pornstar, that has her life turned upside down when she becomes pregnant." Um.... yeah. That will be the timeless epic retold to generations for years to come and replayed every Christmas instead of "It's a Wonderful Life".

    "Carla Gugino, who has actually been acting since the late 80s, has been gaining a lot of popularity recently." She's been popular in my pants since the 90s.
