Sundance: MPI Pictures Acquires James Franco’s ‘Kink’

“Kink,” the James Franco-produced “behind-the-sex” documentary of the world’s largest producer of pornography with BDSM themes, has been acquired by MPI Pictures, it was announced Sunday. MPI has secured all North American rights.

The doc premiered at 2013 Sundance, and will hit theaters in late summer 2014. It follows San Francisco fetish website Kink.com and marks the feature debut of helmer Christina Voros. Along with Franco serving as exec producer, Vince Jolivette’s production company Rabbit Bandini Productions produced.

“Christina Voros’ fearless approach brings strong material to the screen in all its frankness,” said MPI Media Group executive vice president Greg Newman in a statement. “We look forward to releasing this bold work from the always-surprising James Franco.”

The deal was negotiated by MPI’s Newman and Zac Bright and Kevin Iwashina of Preferred Content.
