Chances are that if you’ve followed the work of actress Paz De La Huerta, most notably in Gaspar Noe’s Enter the Void and HBO’s Boardwalk Empire, you’ve just about all of her. Anything that can be seen without the assistance of a TSA agent, that is. So seeing her in the nude isn’t quite so interesting. Seeing her in the nude, covered from head-to-toe in blood wearing at least 4-inch high heels, however, is really something. It’s all promo for Nurse 3D, a film Lionsgate put into production this week. De La Huerta will play “Abby Russell, a beautiful, dedicated nurse with a sinister side, and a secret life’s work in which she targets and punishes dishonest men.” Are you a dishonest man? You will be if you deny wanting to click through and see the full poster in all of its NSFW, adult eyes-only glory.

“In his original nurse photos and the fan conversation that ensued, Tim had clearly scratched the surface of a really great concept – the idea of a film noir depiction of a beautiful nurse who uses her sexuality to very severe ends,” explained Mike Paseornek, Lionsgate’s President of Production and the executive in charge of the film. “That concept was the perfect germ for this thrilling story, which will be extremely visceral in 3D.”
Added Lionsgate marketing chief Tim Palen, “Paz is the perfect actress for this role and has already been such an inspiration to the whole project. She brings an intensity and a sense of adventure to this role that is so promising.” He continues, “We learned from the success of My Bloody Valentine 3D that there is a real interest in what 3D filmmaking can add to risqué scenes in R rated films, and this film will deliver those scenes to audiences in a really sophisticated, artful way.”
Principle photography will begin in Toronto on September 6.
