Tera Patrick, Latest Crossover Porn Star

“Porn is no longer flirting with the mainstream; it is the mainstream.”
– Nicola Simpson, The Money Shot: the Business of Porn

Porn stars, porn stars everywhere… and that’s the way we like it. It looks as though Struggle Pretty Captive and Reign of Tera star Tera Patrick may be joining colleagues Jenna Jameson and Sasha Grey in making the move from mainstream porn to, well, mainstream Hollywood film. Patrick is being considered for a leading role in director Quention Tarantino’s remake of the aptly titled film Faster, Pussycat, Kill! Kill!, the Russ Meyer (Mondo Topless, 1966; Black Snake, 1973) 1966 cult film about three women who take time off from stripping in clubs to go on a murder rampage, kidnapping and drugging the girlfriend of one of their victims and then holing up at a secluded ranch owned by a wheelchair-bound man and his two sons.

An unnamed Page Six source recently remarked that “Quentin loves [Tera], and she’s a dead ringer for original star Tura Satana.” Tura… Tera… hmmm… Apparently, Tera is extremely excited about her potential move to maintream film. “It would be the hottest remake ever, and I’m honored to be considered,” she told Page Six, gushing, “I was built for this part.”

There’s definitely a strong resemblance between Tera and Tura, but who knows in the end how well the former will be able to pull off the depraved, intense, Amazonian sex appeal exuded by the latter. Regardless of the acting, the new Faster, Pussycat, Kill! Kill! should be pretty fantastic, since Quentin will be in his element remaking a 60s exploitation film. But be warned, Faster, Pussycat, Kill! Kill! will probably be an acquired taste. If you weren’t a fan of Quentin’s contribution to Grindhouse, you may not be interested in this particular title. At any rate, we’ll keep our eyes peeled for any new developments, so be sure to check back!
