Someone has let the movie out of the bag.

The notorious Verne Troyer sex tape is now on the market, meaning the once-missing tape has surfaced.

The right to view the footage can be purchased via a website called, which is decorated in a 1960s, Spy Who Shagged Me-inspired theme. (Clicking takes you to the "you must be 18" page.)

As per the terms of a settlement he reached with adult-film distributor SugarDVD, the tape could not be peddled without Troyer's approval, and a rep for the actor denies that he had any involvement in its release.

A very wounded Troyer sued, which posted the first snippets of the X-rated home movie, featuring Troyer and ex-girlfriend Ranae Shrider; celeb-porn broker Kevin Blatt; and SugarDVD for $20 million in June.

Shortly after he was granted a temporary injunction preventing further distribution or monetary transactions by third parties, Shrider admitted to a judge that she leaked the tape herself—and TMZ promptly stuck its clip back online.

The warring sides settled up in July, with Blatt and SugarDVD—which had been touting the eventual release of the explicit video—agreeing that no further hocking would occur without Troyer's permission.

Troyer's attorneys also said at the time that their client had no plans to sell the tape.

He has also filed a $20 million lawsuit against Shrider, calling what she did a "complete betrayal."


[Editor's Note: The original version of this story erroneously stated that Troyer found the once-missing tape, gave his permission for its release and may have profited from the distribution. The information has been corrected above.]
