Carla Gugino to star in ‘Elektra Luxx’

Olyphant, Silverstone, Kirk join Gutierrez's film

Writer-director Sebastian Gutierrez has set Carla Gugino to star in “Elektra Luxx.”

Pic is a sequel to “Women in Trouble,” an ensemble comedy about one day in the lives of 10 Los Angeles women that has yet to find distribution.

“Elektra Luxx” picks up the travails of the characters a month later, again covering a full day. The original starred Gugino, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Adrianne Palicki, Marley Shelton, Connie Britton, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Simon Baker.

Tim Olyphant, Alicia Silverstone and Justin Kirk have been tapped to play characters in “Elektra Luxx,” and many of the actors from the first film are reprising their roles.

Elektra Luxx (Gugino) is a porn star whose life is turned upside down when she discovers she’s pregnant.

Gutierrez is planning a third installment tentatively titled “Women in Ecstasy.” Filming of the first sequel is under way, and all three pics are financed independently and produced by Gutierrez’s Gato Negro Films.

Gugino will next be seen in “Watchmen” for Warner Bros. and “Race to Witch Mountain” for Disney. She just wrapped “Every Day” alongside Liev Schreiber and Helen Hunt.
