Brent Corrigan lashes out at gay porn biopic as ‘Hollywood’s attempt at bastardising’ his life

CREATED ON // Wednesday, 20 April 2016 Author // Gay Life Team

Adult star Brent Corrigan has lashed out at the James Franco-produced film, King Cobra, describing it as “Hollywood’s attempt at bastardising” his early years in the gay porn industry.

The film, which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City on the weekend, tells the story of the death of Brian Kocis, a director and founder of gay porn studio Cobra Video.

Kocis was murdered by two adult performers, Harlow Cuadra and Joseph Kerekes, both of whom were found guilty and are now serving life sentences.

Corrigan, who began his adult career with Cobra Video, later became embroiled in a legal battle after it emerged he was underage when he started performing. 

Produced by Franco, King Cobra is directed by Justin Kelly, and boast a stellar cast including Christian Slater, Keegan Allen, Alicia Silverstone and Molly Ringwald.

Former Disney actor Garrett Clayon plays Brent Corrigan.

Shortly after the film’s release, Corrigan made his feelings known in a series of tweets to fans on social media.

"It's made. And it's not about me. It's Hollywood's attempt at bastardising my early years in porn," he tweeted.

"These filmmakers didn't care about anyone but their take on it all (and not getting sued).”

"It doesn't matter what A list celebrity is involved. The screenplay & content didn't jive. I passed it up."

 

 

 

 

 

 

Corrigan has previously said he was initially approached by producers to consult on the film, as well as being offered a minor role.

But Corrigan turned them down, opting instead to tell his own story via a memoir.

"I was originally approached to be a part of the film as a consultant and the cast. I was asked to play a small part in the film and declined the role,” Corrigan said in October last year.

"Ultimately, I chose to move forward with my own plans to finally release my book in place of taking part in someone else’s presentation of events that I personally lived as a young adult.

"Even with the time that has passed, the memories are still very real and raw for me. I look forward to finally telling my story, beginning middle and end, with an earnest stroke.

"Thanks for being so patient, everyone!"
