Middle Men – An Internet Porn Movie

Middle-Men-Caan.jpgCan the human brain even deal with the concept of how much money internet porn makes? It’s really quite staggering. Everyone has looked at internet porn, and a decent percentage of those people (everyone) have at some point or another actually paid for it too (come one, we all know you were watching a threesome with pig tails scene before you surfed over here).

That’s why I’ve always thought it was weird that there haven’t been more more movies about the porn industry in the online age then there have been up till now. Last year there was a terrific little comedy (at least I thought it was terrific) called “The Moguls” with Jeff Bridges, Joe Pantoliano and Ted Danson. Now we’ve got Zack and Miri make a porno opening soon, and now we hear about Middle Men.

The folks over at Cinematical give us this:

Set to be a comedy, the film was said to follow some normal dude who ends up in the center of that biz we call adult entertainment during the early days of Internet porn (mid-90s, I guess?). James Caan, Gabriel Macht, Peter Stormare, and Rachael Taylor have signed on for the film, which will star Luke Wilson and Giovanni Ribisi — all in yet-to-be-disclosed parts. The film is also sounding a wee bit different these days. Yes, it’s still about some regular guy — a “straight-and-narrow businessman who builds the first online billing company dealing exclusively with adult entertainment.” But then there’s a bit of an insane twist. He finds “himseld in the middle of a whirlwind filled with starlets, conmen, Russian mobsters, federal agents, and international terrorists.”

James Caan in a movie about the world of internet porn? Sweet! Sign me up! I’m not sure I like the sounds of the whole “Russian mobsters and Federal agents” angle though… sounds like it’s trying to do too much. But I haven’t read the script so it could all work together nicely.

Personally, if I was going to make a movie about the world of internet porn, I think it would be about a guy named Eric. In the first scene, Eric just gets home from a long day at work. He has something to eat and grabs a beer… then he sits in front of his computer and watches online porn for the next 90 minutes. Then I’d have the credits roll. O…S…C…A…R!!!!!!
