Garrett Clayton will play gay porn star
Brent Corrigan in a James Franco-produced movie about the murder of
adult film producer Bryan Kocis.
Clayton is best known for his portrayal
of Tanner in Teen Beach and Teen Beach 2, which aired
exclusively on the Disney Channel.
Corrigan, real name Sean Paul Lockhart,
was a key figure in the murder of Kocis, head of Cobra Video, the
studio which had an exclusive contract with Corrigan.
Porn star Harlow Raymond Cuadra and
Joseph Manuel Kerekes were convicted of the 2007 murder of Kocis.
Cuadra and Kerekes, who produced their
own adult films, wanted Kocis to let Corrigan star in one of their
videos opposite Cuadra, but Kocis would not let his star model out of
porn star Cuadra to spend life in jail.)
Christian Slater will play Kocis in the
film. Molly Ringwald captioned a photo on Twitter of herself with
Slater, “New movie brother! #KingCobra,” leading to speculation
she's been cast to play Kocis' sister, Melody, in the film.
