Stephen Dorff ‘Born’ into porn

Adam Sandler co-wrote porn comedy

Stephen Dorff has boarded the porn industry comedy “Born to Be a Star” for Sony Pictures.

Adam Sandler co-wrote the screenplay and is producing.

Story centers on a small-town Midwestern nerd (Nick Swardson) who discovers his parents were famous porn stars. Christina Ricci has already signed on to play Swardson’s girlfriend. Dorff will play “Dick Shadow,” a legendary porn star.

Allen Covert and Swardson also penned the script.

Sony acquired the Tom Brady-helmed film as a negative pickup. Sandler’s partner Jack Giarraputo is also producing — though not through the pair’s Sony-based Happy Madison shingle — alongside Covert and Barry Bernardi.

Lensing begins next week.

Dorff is repped by ICM and Management 360.
