Original Story November 3 2015:

“General Hospital” alum James Franco (Port Charles’ ex-Franco Baldwin) has just wrapped filming on the upcoming movie “King Cobra” according to Deadline. The film is from writer-director Justin Kelly (“I Am Michael”) and is based on the murder of producer Bryan Kocis that rocked the adult entertainment industry in 2007.

In the film Christian Slater (“Heathers”) plays Stephen, a producer who discovers the next big adult film star Brent Corrigan (Garrett Clayton, “Teen Beach Movie”). He soon finds himself the target of rival producer Joe (James Franco) who will do anything to steal the upcoming star away and become the next big porn producing king. The film is due out in 2016 and also stars Keegan Allen (“Pretty Little Liars”), Molly Ringwald (“Sixteen Candles”) and Alicia Silverstone (“Clueless”).

Franco joined General Hospital in 2009 as serial killer Franco Baldwin, a character named after the star. Franco later produced Francophrenia, a behind-the-scenes look at General Hospital about his time on the show. Check out the following Instagram photo that Franco shared from the set of “King Cobra.”
