Private's Berth Milton to Release Porn Industry Expose'
NEW YORK — Suspended Private Media CEO Berth Milton is planning to release a scathing tell-all mainstream movie about the porn business that will document his rise and fall and air the industry's dirty ldealings.
The New York Post reported today that Milton, who was relieved of is duties at Private in December 2010, a move that looks looks to be permanent after a court decision upheld a new board of directors without him just last week, is bent of releasing the expose'.
Milton said that after being ousted from his top spot at Private he'll have his revenge on the big screen.
“A lot of people should be very scared about this movie — famous people, wealthy people, politicians,” Milton told The Post. “Even I myself won’t look that good. But I don’t care – it will be the truth.”
The proposed $20 million film — “A Private Story” — is set to be filmed this summer by director Daniel Fridell and released next year. It will reportedly seek an “R” rating, and be packaged, financed and marketed by William Morris Endeavor, the Hollywood agency headed by Ari Emanuel.
According to Fridell, Milton’s movie will be “like a cross between ‘Boogie Nights’ and ‘The Godfather.'"
“We’re focusing on the relationship between the son and the father,” Fridell said.
Milton told the Post that he’s glad to be out of porn — an industry that he never really wanted to be part of.
“It was a really sleazy business before I took over,” Milton said. “I changed everything — drug tests and health tests for the actors. I raised their salaries drastically.”
Private was contacted by XBIZ but received no comment at post time.
