Gay adult film star Brent Corrigan (pictured, left) has taken to social media to hit out at new gay porn biopic King Cobra.

The film, produced by James Franco and starring Franco, Christian Slater and Molly Ringwald, is based on the real-life murder of Bryan Kocis in 2007. Kocis was the boss of controversial gay porn company Cobra Video.

Brent, whose real name is Sean Paul Lockhart, featured in several of Cobra Videos’ most high-profile films. He is portrayed in King Cobra by former Disney star Garrett Clayton (pictured, right).

Brent tweeted: “It’s made. And it’s not about me. It’s Hollywood’s attempt at bastardising my early years in porn.

“These filmmakers didn’t care about anyone but their take on it all (and not getting sued).”

He was previously approached to work on the film as a consultant. He was also asked to have a small role in the film as well, but he chose to decline.

“It doesn’t matter what A-list celebrity is involved. The screenplay & content didn’t jive. I passed it up,” he tweeted.

“I’ve said it many times before, I’m not about telling someone else’s idea of how events in my life unfolded.”

Brent said he plans to tell his story “beginning, middle and end with an earnest stroke” in an upcoming book, titled Incorrigible.

Incorrigible doesn’t yet appear to have a release date. Brent told his Twitter followers that the book will be “out very soon” and it’ll be “something to look forward to.”
