IFC Films have acquired gay porn drama King Cobra after its premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival.
Based on the 2007 book by Andrew E. Stoner-Peter Cobra Killer: Gay Porn, Murder, and the Manhunt to Bring the Killers to Justice the film tells the story of the early rise of gay porn headliner Sean Paul Lockhart a.k.a. Brent Corrigan, before his falling out with the producer who made him famous. When Sean decides he’d be better off a free agent, a cash-strapped pair of rival producers aim to cash in by any means possible.
King Cobra stars James Franco, Christian Slater, Garrett Clayton, Keegan Allen, Alicia Silverstone and Molly Ringwald.
