FRENCH producers are planning to make a porn film about the scandal surrounding former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn and his alleged sexual assault of a New York hotel maid.
Porn star Roberto Malone will play the lead character, "David Sex King" while Sandra Romain will play his wife, and Katia De Lys will portray the hotel maid, The Local reported.
The production company, My Porn Productions, is asking members of the public to help fund the project, which has the working title DXK.
The firm calls on people to donate a minimum of €50 ($US68) toward the movie's €200,000 production costs. In return, donors will have their names included in the credits and receive an invitation to the film's premiere.
The producers said DXK will be a parody of the scandal that saw Mr Strauss-Kahn accused of sexually assaulting hotel maid Nafissatou Diallo. New York prosecutors eventually dropped the criminal charges against him amid doubts about Ms Diallo's credibility, but she is suing Mr Strauss-Kahn for damages.
The once-favourite Socialist candidate for the French presidency also faced another sexual assault charge by French journalist Tristane Banon, but the investigation was dropped last month after French prosecutors said that too much time had elapsed since the alleged attack.
French investigators are looking into claims that Mr Strauss-Kahn was involved in another sex scandal involving prostitutes allegedly paid for by the management of the Carlton hotel in Lille, northwestern France.
