Tribeca Film Festival 2016: Christian Slater in 'King Cobra' — exclusive clip

Slater, James Franco, and Garrett Clayton star in real-life tale

Jesse Korman

In director Justin Kelly’s inspired-by-real-events drama King Cobra, Garrett Clayton portrays gay porn actor Sean Paul Lockhart, whose career has been shepherded by Christian Slater’s producer. When Lockhart decides he’d be better off as a free agent, a pair of rival producers (James Franco, Keegan Allen) aim to cash in by any means possible. 

Costarring Molly Ringwald and Alicia Silverstone, King Cobra receives its world premiere as part of the Tribeca Film Festival on April 16. You can exclusively see a scene from the film featuring Slater and Clayton, above.
