James Franco, Zachary Quinto and Charlie Carver Set for Steamy Ménage à Trois in Gay Drama ‘Michael’

The three actors will share a love scene in the new film about a homosexual man turned Christian fundamentalist

James Franco will portray a gay magazine publisher turned Christian fundamentalist in his next film, but don’t think it’s all fire and brimstone: audiences can expect a threesome from Franco’s character’s pre-conversion days, an individual with knowledge of the production told TheWrap.

In the upcoming “Michael,” Gus Van Sant protege and director Justin Kelly shot a love scene with a party of three: Franco, Zachary Quinto and “The Leftovers” star Charlie Carver.

Franco and Quinto play Michael and Ben, a young couple fond of bedding party boys like Carver’s character Tyler. All three actors will flash some backside nudity for the film, a production insider said.

“It’s a very artistic film, though,” said the individual. Isn’t it always?

“They first meet in a club. The music is pumping. It’s the eighties!” another individual told E!, who first reported the news . “When Charlie’s character questions Franco about having a boyfriend, Franco says, ‘He’d like you, too.'”

While the film has its carnal diversions, its’ not without substance: “Michael” was adapted from a 2011 New York Times article about Michael Glatze, who identified as gay before declaring himself healed by a “spiritual awakening.”

The film also stars Carver’s “Leftovers” castmate Chris Zylka and Franco’s “Palo Alto” co-star Emma Roberts.

And in celebration of the guys’ scene, we present a definitive threesome anthem. Enjoy.
