KING COBRA, writer/director Justin Kelly’s (I Am Michael) ripped-from-the-headlines gay porn crime drama starring Christian Slater, James Franco, Garrett Clayton (Hairspray Live!) and Keegan Allen (Pretty Little Liars), will be released in theaters and on demand on October 21st. Perhaps the buzziest title at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival, the film premiered at the festival to strong critical acclaim with critics praising the film as “the Boogie Nights of gay porn”.

Based on a stranger-than-fiction true story, King Cobra is a deliciously dark, twisted plunge into the behind-the-scenes world of the pornography industry.  Sean Lockhart (Garrett Clayton), seventeen and boyishly handsome, dreams of fame and success even though he’s broke and without direction. When he meets the seemingly conservative Stephen (Christian Slater), founder of Cobra Video, he starts to perform in gay porn under the moniker “Brent Corrigan,” creating a slew of wildly successful videos during which he blossoms from a naïve young man into a confident sex symbol. When rival porn producers Joe (James Franco), a former youth pastor with a bad temper, and Harlow (Keegan Allen), a former military man, set their sights on stealing Sean from Stephen, an all-out porn turf war ensues, resulting in a shocking, gruesome murder in this bizarre, stranger than fiction true story. Co-starring Alicia Silverstone and Molly Ringwald, King Cobra is part delirious, tabloid-shocker satire, part American tragedy.
