Latest gay drama, King Cobra, based on real events from gay porn industry, was released this weekend at New York’s Tribeca Film Festival.
One of the main characters is based on Brent Corrigan (Sean Paul Lockhart) a star of the porn industry ran by Bryan Cocis (King Cobra). But Brent does not like the way producers made the movie and thinks that it doesn’t stick to the real story.
Brent was offered to play the role of himself but he refused, claiming that the script deviates from reality and makes everything look different and badly.
“I chose to stay out of it because it was clear to me they were not trying to make a movie that would serve gay men, the gay adult industry, or any justice with what happened to Bryan, or what I lived through with Grant [Roy].
“Grant played an integral part of the investigation, was my go-between in my limited engagement with Harlow and Joe, and he worked tirelessly in mediation with Bryan before his death to settle the civil suit out of court… These filmmakers couldn’t even write him a part in the movie.
“They made it seem like I navigated it all alone, and even went so far to present their version of me as extorting Bryan. I never did that,”said Corrigan.
He also wrote on Twitter that the film is not about him, and that Hollywood is trying to bastardize his early years in porn.
