In the film, Franco is Michael Glatze, a former gay-rights journalist and gay magazine editor who after a health scare finds religion, rejects his queer “lifestyle” and becomes a Christian pastor. Zachary Quinto and Emma Roberts play his love interests and Charlie Carver co-stars.

I Am Michael is based on a 2011 New York Times Magazine profile on Glatze. It is another collaboration between Franco and Kelly, who directed him in the gay porn murder thriller, King Cobra.

You may remember I Am Michael when it made headlines almost two years ago when Carver spoke about how his threesome scene in the movie with Quinto and Franco was “hot as hell.


I Am Michael will see a limited release in theaters and VOD on January 27.
