James Franco, Christian Slater & A Disney Star In Film About Gay Porn & Murder

Katie Cannon September 27, 2016 September 27th, 2016

So James Franco is continuing his endless game of gay chicken in a film based on a true story of sex, money, and murder: KING COBRA. The film stars TEEN BEACH MOVIE alum Garrett Clayton as wildly popular (and underage) gay porn star Brent Corrigan, with Christian Slater as his possessive (and doomed) producer Bryan Kocis;  Franco, along with Keegan Allen, play porn moguls/partners-in-crime that want to steal Brent Corrigan and his golden boy mystique from under Kocis’s nose.

Spoiler alert for real-life events: somebody dies horribly.

But until then, the movie is being lauded as “darkly hilarious,” and James Franco’s “most unhinged performance since SPRING BREAKERS.” Sign me up. It also doesn’t hurt that in between the black humor, shady business deals, and straight-up murder, it looks like there’s quite a lot of sex, particularly featuring the painfully gorgeous Disney alum Clayton.

Oddly enough, the film also features turns from a couple rom com queens of yesteryear, Alicia Silverstone and Molly Ringwald. Basically: this thing’s going to be entertaining as hell.

Check it out:

This isn’t even Franco’s only film about the porn industry this year–he also signed a contract to play porn star twins an HBO series about the NYC adult scene in the 60s and 70s, helmed by the David Simon and several of the other brilliant minds for THE WIRE.

KING COBRA premieres October 21.
