The first bit of casting news has arrived for the upcoming sci-fi thriller Fembot as European actress and German Penthouse Pet Nikita Black joins the production in a pivotal role. Read on for the details along with word on who else has come on board.
The film, written by Staci Layne Wilson (Fetish Factory), will serve as the feature directorial debut of editor Vance Crofoot (Treachery, The Victim).
Production begins in July with plans to premiere the film in 2015.
Black’s role came about as the result of her meeting producers/co-stars Michael Biehn and Jennifer Blanc-Biehn during their recent trip overseas to receive the 2014 Vienna Film Ball Award for The Victim, during which Blanc-Biehn did a photo shoot for the magazine.
“During my Penthouse Germany shoot in Vienna, I met the beautiful and talented Nikita Black (pictured above left),” said Blanc-Biehn. “After extensive discussions about casting, we realized that Nikita would be the perfect actress for one of the lead roles in Fembot and developed the character ‘Nikita’ for Nikita Black!”
Blanc-Biehn will play ‘Bridget,’ and the film will also now showcase in a supporting lead role dancer Tristan Risk (American Mary, Fetish Factory). Martin Richard Kristek (the real-life owner and CEO of Care-Energy and ESCO) will have a supporting role as a solar energy provider working with the inventor of the Fembot.
In addition, Blanc/Biehn Productions will be hosting an audition competition to select one lucky film fan for a small part in Fembot. Keep your eyes on The BB Basement for info on how to register for this opportunity.

Imagine a world in the not-too-distant future in which your every whim and desire can be fulfilled by a beautiful, charming, and sexually adventurous female robot. Thanks to ingenious scientific advances and potency provided by benevolent green energy eco-power plants, these “Fembots” are a dream come true. She’s lifelike, responsive, warm, and soft to the touch — she even smells like cotton candy. What man wouldn’t want one?
Wealthy entrepreneur Zayden Beckett (Biehn) can’t wait to invest… both professionally and personally. Beckett test-drives a few Fembot models before he settles on Arla, the most intelligent of the lot and specially programmed just for him. Unfortunately, the devious inventor of the Fembot has cut corners with Arla, using a different, inferior energy source. She develops a mind of her own and a thought process which allows for jealousy. When Beckett begins to fall in love with a real woman, Arla goes on the attack.
Fembot serves as a warning, a wake-up call for the viewer: Beware of the temptations of the virtual reality – because in the end you might find yourself out in a real world that’s more fiction than fact, where nothing is real anymore. Fembot is a thrilling and erotic, energy-conscious sci-fi suspense film.
