The X-rated X-Files, now the Sex-Files, so Fox doesn’t sue

(CHATSWORTH, CA) — Twentieth Century Fox has sent a cease and desist letter to adult film studio Digital Sin/New Sensations, currently in post production on a parody of its television series ”X-Files.” Their X-rated drama, set to release in late September of this year, was given a title ”The X- Files: A Dark XXX Parody.”

In the letter, a representative from Fox demands that Digital Sin/New Sensations change the title of the film and cease use of the X-Files mark. Digital Sin/New Sensations does not believe that its intended product infringes the rights of Fox. However, in the spirit of cooperation, the Company has decided to respond to Fox’s concerns by adapting the title to ”The Sex Files: A Dark XXX Parody,” removing the website associated with the film and changing the names of the main characters.

The film, set to raise the bar on adult features, will be the largest budget adult production to date that has been shot entirely on the Red One Digital Cinema Camera, a task that a handful in the industry have ever attempted and never on a film of this magnitude.

The adult studio has successfully parodied a growing list of the primetime line- ups from current and past, with spoofs of ”the Office”, ”Scrubs”, ”Seinfeld”, ”Friends” and ”30 Rock” resulting in sales that have given a heartbeat to an otherwise slumping industry.
