The movie, as discussed earlier, centers on the murder case of Cobra Video owner Bryan Kocis (Christian Slater), the man credited with “discovering” Brent Corrigan (at the age of 17, portrayed by Disney star Garrett Clayton), and who subsequently became the target of a 2007 murder plot by a former male escort and rival producer, Joe Kerekes (played by James Franco) and his boyfriend Harlow Cuadra (Keegan Allen).
Molly Ringwald, as previously announced, plays Kocis’s sister. And this now means that the cast is littered with former teen stars, with Franco, Slater, Ringwald, and Silverstone all having become famous in teen movies.
Here’s a hot new promo photo of Garrett Clayton as Brent Corrigan.
Here’s an Instagram of Clayton trying to look actor-y with Slater beside him.
Also in the cast, and news to me, is cute young twink Sean Grandillo.
The writer-director of the film is Justin Kelly, whose debut film I Am Michael, about the odd case of openly gay activist turned conservative Christian ex-gay Michael Glatze debuted on the festival circuit this year also starred Franco as Michael.
The release date of King Cobra is, of course, unknown.
