IFC Acquires Franco-Led “King Cobra”

IFC Films has acquired U.S. rights to “I Am Michael” helmer Justin Kelly’s “King Cobra” which screened at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival.

James Franco, Christian Slater, Garrett Clayton, Keegan Allen, Alicia Silverstone and Molly Ringwald lead the cast of the true story tale of the rise of gay porn star Brent Corrigan, his relationship with the seemingly conservative founder of Cobra Video (Slater), and rival porn producers (Franco, Allen) determined to steal Corrigan for their label – all leading up to an infamous murder.

No word on a release date or if there’ll be a simultaneous VOD release as is common with recent IFC titles.
