Pornstar Belladonna Will Attempt To Mainstream In The Horror Movie Stripped

Back in 2008, world famous adult film actress Jenna Jameson made the leap into mainstream film by doing a film called Zombie Strippers!. The next year, director Steven Soderbergh decided to cast Sasha Grey, another adult film star, in his film The Girlfriend Experience. Neither film did particularly well in theaters - largely due to lack of exposure (puns!) - but both stand as examples of the minor things people can do to outrage other people. So who will be the next porn star to make the leap?

Michelle "Belladonna" Sinclair, that's who. According to a press release from Wildworks Productions, Sinclair has been cast in the upcoming horror film Stripped, directed by first-timer John Wildman. In the film, which follows three young boys as they are "trapped in a house with a 'family' of malevolent women," Sinclair will play Ginger, a new girl to the house. Production is set to begin in Dallas this fall.

It doesn't take an idiot to see that this casting move was done to draw attention to a small independent film, but some credit is due to Sinclair for choosing the role. In their films, Jameson played a stripper while Grey played a prostitute. At least this adult film actress is trying to show some range.
