Laurence Fishburne’s daughter is breaking into the movie business.
Rather than submit an acting reel or attend auditions, young Montana Fishburne plans to use a sex tape to increase her profile and give her a foothold in the film industry.
According to a press release, Vivid Entertainment, which also distributed Kendra Wilkinson and Kim Kardashian’s sex tape, will handle the release of Montana Fishburne’s self-titled video, which is due out August 18th.
She said she was inspired by Kim Kardashian, who shot to instant fame after her own sex tape was made public several years ago.
“I’ve watched how successful Kim Kardashian became and I think a lot of it was due to the release of her sex tape by Vivid,” Fishburne said in the press release.” I’m hoping the same magic will work for me. I’m impatient about getting well-known and having more opportunities and this seemed like a great way to get started on it.”
Her father, Laurence, is a well-respected actor who has starred in “Apocalypse Now,” “What’s Love Got to Do With It?” and “The Matrix” trilogy. He’s currently making the rounds on the hit show “CSI.”
“Montana made up her mind to make this DVD before we met her,” Vivid co-founder/chairman Steven Hirsch said. “She grew up in the entertainment business and was well aware of our company. In looking at the careers of many current leading female personalities, she saw a path to success and hopes to follow it.”
A YouTube interview of Montana Fishburne with adult actor Brian Pumper, one of her new co-stars, has been making Internet rounds.
“The scene was fun. It was sexy,” Pumper said of their work together. “She performed well.”
“It’s a step in a direction,” Montana Fishburne added of her motives for joining “the industry.”
