I don't know a guy or a girl who doesn't have a crush on Carla Gugino. Somehow the Top Whatever Sexiest of Whatever Lists have all passed her up in favor of, like, that girl from 7th Heaven, but she'll always have a spot toward the top of my sexy list. Gugino will take on the legendary (and original) Silk Spectre in Watchmen this spring, and a couple of months ago she played one of them rough-sex types in Righteous Kill -- but now ... well, now she's taking sexy one step further in the form of a porn star. Wait, strike that ... a pregnant porn star! Hot!

Variety reports that Gugino will star in Elektra Luxx, which -- get this -- is a sequel to an ensemble comedy called Women in Trouble, which never found distribution. Yeah, so why not make the sequel when the original never had a chance to fail? As previously mentioned, Gugino will play a porn star whose life gets turned upside down when she discovers a bun in the oven. Joining her in the cast are Tim Olyphant, Alicia Silverstone and Justin Kirk. Oh, but writer-director Sebastian Gutierrez isn't stopping there, and although filming on the second film is now underway, plans are already in place for a third installment tentatively called Women in Ecstasy. Unfortunately, we may never have a chance to see it ... or its previous two installments.

That brings up a good question: Has a sequel ever hit theaters before (or instead of) the original?

Update: Check out two images of Carla Gugino as Elektra Luxx after the jump.
