Say what you want but James Franco sure keeps busy, being involved with 14 projects for 2016 alone. Sure there have been some questionable roles and some not so admired performances, but I like the guy and Franco has delivered plenty of solid showings in the past. He definitely can’t be pegged as an actor that plays it safe. And of these riskier movies that Franco can be seen in this year is King Cobra, which costar Christian Slater and draws from real events in the porn industry.

The film is based on the 2012 book, Cobra Killer: Gay Porn Murder and the Manhunt to Bring the Killers to Justice by Andrew E. Stoner and Peter A. Conway and has Slater play a porno producer named Stephen who discovers the next big adult star Brent Corrigan (Garret Clayton). However Stephen finds himself the target of Joe (Franco), a rival producer and former male escort with a bad temper and a burning desire to become a porn kingpin.  When Stephen refuses to let his star be in his rivals movie, it prompts Joe to stop at nothing to get Brent Corrigan in his movie, ultimately leading to a murderous end.

You can see the trailer for King Cobra below.

It’s seems a really interesting story and I can’t think of another movie that has focused on the workings of the porn industry since Boogie Nights, so it’s refreshingly different material compared to what we have been exposed to recently. And based off the trailer the movie is looking great as well.
