Dirty Love: Beverly Hills Film Studios Inc.'s new romantic comedy, Dirty Love, has been gaining a lot of attention from media and fans during production this week in Los Angeles. The studio assembled an amazing cast featuring screen sirens Jenny McCarthy and Carmen Electra in the female lead roles and the hilarious Eddie Kaye Thomas (American Pie) in the male lead. The project is being helmed by John Asher (Miramax's Diamonds with Kirk Douglas and Thank Heaven) and produced by Kimberley Kates and BJ Davis of Beverly Hills Film Studios. The film also marks the screenwriting debut of McCarthy.
Also starring in the film are the members of the hot Canadian band Sum 41 including Deryck Whibley, who will be playing a love interest of Electra's character. In the third female lead is the beautiful Kam Heskin, last seen in Steven Spielberg's Catch Me If You Can as well as Planet of the Apes. Heskin plays the role of airy and flamboyant "Carrie," best friend of McCarthy's character, "Rebecca."
