The murder of studio owner Bryan Kocis by two of his stars, Harlow Cuadra and Joseph Kerekes, in 2007 is perhaps one of the most well documented stories in QCrimes history. Both murderers were sentenced to life in prison and the gruesome details of the case have fascinated audiences for a very long time. Books have been written and media attention faded with time but it seems that a new movie is about to reignite the interest.
QC has received information that Christian Slater has been cast to play the part of Bryan Kocis in “King Cobra” a movie adaptation of the book “Cobra Killer Gay Porn Murder” that narrates the horrific circumstances that led to the death of the gay porn producer who was stabbed 28 times and his throat was cut, nearly decapitating him. Kocis’ body was left in his house before it was set on fire to cover the evidence. The film effort is produced by Event Films and James Franco, who is also receiving acting credentials so we assume he will be one of the leads but his character has not been revealed yet. Filming has started and actress Molly Ringwald tweeted a selfie of her and Slater confirming her involvement in the project and apparently she’ll be playing Kocis’ sister Melody. We also have learned that newcomer Garrett Clayton (from Disney’s musical Teen Beach Movie) will play a character named “Sean” that we assumed is in fact Brent Corrigan, who if you remember, collaborated with the FBI in this case as he was an underage actor working for Cobra Video at the time of the murder.
What do you think QC reader, are you looking forward to see a movie based on this case? Tell us in the comments!
