Yesterday, we told you about the casting of Disney actor Garrett Clayton to play gay adult film star Brent Corrigan in a movie produced by James Franco and based on the murder of gay porn producer Bryan Kocis. Today comes another tease of what the film — titled King Cobra (Kocis’ production company was called Cobra video) — has in store for us.
James Franco shared a revealing snap on Instagram showing him alongside actor Keegan Allen, both of whom are clad in Nasty Pig apparel.
Allen also shared the pic with the caption “see you soon @garrettclayton1 ❤️”
While we had heard Franco would produce the film it now appears, based on these snaps, that Franco will also act in the film.
Perhaps Franco will play one of the two gay murderers at the heart of the story? The real life murders that inspired the story were carried out by Raymond Cuadra, 25, and Joseph Manuel Kerekes, 33, in what police called a “misguided attempt to make it big” and lure producer Kocis’ big star (Brent Corrigan, né Sean Lockhart) away from Kocis.
Justin Kelly will direct King Cobra following his feature length film debut I Am Michael, which Franco also starred in.
