Hey guys, Jana here,
James Franco is nothing if not incredibly busy, his latest project just wrapped which makes only 1 in 15 projects he has in varying degrees of completion, at the moment. ‘King Cobra‘ focuses on a murder in the adult entertainment industry in the early 2000s. A porno producer, played by Christian Slater, discovers the next big star in Brent Corrigan (Garrett Clayton), then finds himself the target of rival producer and a former male escort played by Franco, with a bad temper and a burning desire to become a porn kingpin who will stop at nothing to steal his rival’s star. All based on a true story with Keegan Allen, Molly Ringwald and Alicia Silverstone appearing.
The film comes from writer-director Justin Kelly (‘I Am Michael‘) and comes from Jordan Yale Levine of Yale Productions, Scott Levenson, Franco, Vince Jolivette and Iris Torres of Rabbit Bandini are producing with Shaun Sanghani of SSS Entertainment. If you’re into true crime, or just multiple uses of the word “bareback”, this will be one to see. The pic is slated to bow on the big screens in late 2016.
