The indie film will go into production very soon…

A biopic based on the life of adult actor Joey Stefano will be released later this year, and two of Drag Race’s biggest stars will feature in acting roles.

Michelle Visage will play a fictitious television host called Anita, who will appear throughout the entire film to help bring the events together.

Alaska, meanwhile, has been cast as Gender, who was a make-up artist that performed alongside Chi Chi LaRue and Chris Green in band called Johnny Depp Clones.

The biopic will include Joey Stefano’s discovery by drag superstar LaRue, his time as one of the world’s most famous gay porn stars, and even his cameo in Madonna’s Sex.

The star died aged 26 in 1994 from a drug overdose consisting of cocaine, morphine, heroin, and ketamine.

He appeared in a total of 58 adult films during his career, as well as being in Madonna’s Deeper and Deeper music video.

Director Chad Darnell has spent three years speaking to over 50 sources as research for the new film, which is expected to be released next year.
