Although there are conflicting historical reports of James Dean being gay, bisexual, or even straight, this film takes the perspective that Dean was in fact gay, and portrays critical events in Dean’s life under the lens of a non-heterosexual orientation. The film is produced by Iconoclastic Pictures, Jay-X Entertainment, and MGDB Productions France and stars James Preston as Dean (Queer As Folk‘s Robert Gant also stars in the film as “The Famous Director”). An American release date hasn’t been announced yet. But you can watch the trailer for the film, which looks beautifully dazzling, below:
