Disney Actor Playing Brent Corrigan In New Movie About Porn Murder

Christian Slater and Molly Ringwald co-star in the movie, being produced by James Franco.

Back in 2007, porn director Bryan Kocis was found dead in his home, and two adult-film performers were tried and found guilty of his murder.

Now the gruesome saga is being turned into a film, King Cobra, by James Franco’s production company, Event Films.

Molly Ringwald and Christian Slater have already signed on to the film, but who will play the young men, Harlow Cuadra and Joseph Kerekes, at the heart of the scandal?

Those roles are still unannounced, but Queer Click (NSFW) reports Disney Channel star Garrett Clayton is playing Brent Corrigan, who began making films with Kocis when he was underage and became embroiled in a legal battle with the director.
