MAY 15, 2017 — New Sensations announces it has begun production on "The Submission of Emma Marx IV: Evolved." The sequel opens a new chapter in the life of Emma Marx, one of adult cinema's most enthralling and complex protagonists — now on her own and taking charge of her first submissive.

Acclaimed writer and director Jacky St. James helms the newest feature in the award-winning BDSM franchise with Penny Pax reprising her iconic role as Emma Marx and newcomer Violet Starr making her feature acting debut as Emma's sub, Mariah.

"This is an Emma we have never seen before, a woman exploring life fully outside her comfort zone and helping another woman on her own path to submission," Jacky St. James said. "I am thrilled at the opportunity to come back to a film that has become my defining work in this industry. It's incredibly surreal to have been a part of the Emma Marx evolution — not just on the screen, but in real life. The performers have grown and changed, all of whom feel like my own extended family. I'm equally excited to be back with the crew: Eddie Powell, Paul Woodcrest, and Paul Van Dik. The band's back together again!"

"The Submission of Emma Marx IV: Evolved" picks up two years after the events of the series' third chapter "The Submission of Emma Marx: Exposed." Emma has taken on a submissive of her own, but the young woman's spirited and precocious nature presents challenges that will test Emma's resolve.

Penny Pax, named Best Actress at the 2016 AVN Awards for her stirring portrayal of Emma Marx, is thrilled with her character's new storyline. "It's an absolute dream come true to continue my role as Emma," Pax said, "especially since she takes on something she has never experienced before. I'm still in shock that we are making a fourth movie! I can't wait for everyone to see it!"

"I was very excited about joining this production," Violet Starr said. "This will be my first feature film. Everyone on set is super delightful to work with. Jacky is a wonderful director with a very unique vision. I find my character to be really spunky and sassy which I love to play! This whole experience has been very memorable. I can't wait to see the end result."

"The Submission of Emma Marx IV: Evolved" also sees the return of superstar Riley Reid as Emma's sweet, but self-centered, sister Nadia, now at an emotional crossroads with husband and baby-daddy Ray, played once again by Van Wylde. The role earned Reid wins for Best Supporting Actress at the 2014 and 2016 XBIZ Awards.

"I love this whole cast and crew and am so happy for the success this movie has brought them," Riley Reid said. "I'm so grateful being a part of it — even if I'm the self-absorbed older sister! The amount of work that goes into these movies doesn't go unseen or unappreciated. I mean for fuck's sakes, we're making a fourth! This isn't 'Big Boob Sluts 4!' It's a movie with story, a plot, a good guy and a bad guy. It's a movie about exploration and experience that you watch characters go through over the course of a few years. It's incredible! Penny Pax, Jacky St James, and Eddie Powell do such an amazing job and I feel lucky to be a part of it!"

Rounding out the cast for "The Submission of Emma Marx IV: Evolved" are 2017 AVN Male Performer of the Year Mick Blue, 2017 XBIZ Male Performer of the Year Xander Corvus, Damon Dice, Jay Smooth, John Strong, and 2017 AVN Best Male Newcomer Ricky Johnson.

"The Submission of Emma Marx" released in 2013 to big sales and critical acclaim, spawning two blockbuster sequels: "The Submission of Emma Marx: Boundaries" and "The Submission of Emma Marx: Exposed." Collectively, the original "Emma Marx" trilogy has earned 10 AVN Awards — including wins for Best BDSM Movie (2014, 2016), Best Director (2017), Best Screenplay (2016, 2017), Best Editing (2016, 2017), Best Cinematography (2017) — and four XBIZ Awards, including Best Screenplay (2016) and Best Editing (2016).
