James Franco-Directed Film About Gay Actor Sal Mineo Gets a Trailer: VIDEO


Back in 2011, James Franco directed Sal, a biopic about the late silver screen heartthrob  (and James Dean Rebel co-star) Sal Mineo who in the late 60's became one of the first major actors to come out of the closet, and was murdered in 1976 in West Hollywood. The film, which stars Val Lauren, is finally getting a release on video on demand and iTunes on October 22, and will have a limited theatrical run starting in November.

The film is based on Greg Michaud's book Sal Mineo: A Biography.
