Don Johnson Directs A Porn “Star”

Don Johnson will play a mustached porn director in the comedy “Born to Be a Star” for Sony Pictures and Happy Madison says The Hollywood Reporter.

Nick Swardson is starring as a small-town nerd who learns his quiet and demure parents were famous porn stars in the 1970s. This motivates him to leave northern Iowa for Hollywood, hoping to follow in their footsteps and fulfill his destiny as the biggest adult-film star in the world.

Johnson plays a down-on-his-luck director who discovers Swardson and gives him a shot. Christina Ricci stars as Swardson’s innocent girlfriend and Stephen Dorff as adult film star Dick Shadow.

Tom Brady is directing from a script co-written by Adam Sandler and Swardson. Sandler and Jack Giarraputo will produce.
