Brent Corrigan turned down role in James Franco’s King Cobra

Brent Corrigan is writing a book about the murder of Bryan Kocis.

Gay porn star Brent Corrigan turned down a role in James Franco’s new movie about his early adult career.

Earlier this week, Franco announced that he was producing the film, titled King Cobra, and had cast Disney’s Garrett Clayton as Corrigan.

The film is based on the 2007 murder of a gay porn producer and the owner of Cobra Studios, Bryan Kocis (Christian Slater). He was killed by two escorts who were trying to lure his then-underage star Corrigan away from the company.

‘The internet has been a buzz regarding some recent news that a movie is being filmed right now in New York State chronicling the Bryan Kocis murder and the early days of my adult career,’ Corrigan wrote on Facebook.

‘I was originally approached to be a part of the film as a consultant and the cast. I was asked to play a small part in the film and declined the role.

‘Ultimately, I chose to move forward with my own plans to finally release my book in place of taking part in someone elses presentation of events that I personally lived as a young adult.’

Corrigan also responded to several questions about the film and its casting on Twitter:
