A porn legend like Joey Stefano never really sashays away.

After years of fundraising and false starts, it seems as though the late porn legend will finally make a return to the screen. Dazed reports the life of the famed power bottom from the early 90s will be the subject of a biopic starring “RuPaul’s Drag Race” judge Michelle Visage and former contestants Alaska Thunderfuck and Willam Belli.

IMDB has the film listed as a 2018 release.

“Joey Stefano” (formerly titled “X-Rated”) tells the story of Stefano’s rise to fame in the porn industry, his stint as a model in Madonna’s “Sex” book, and death by a drug overdose. The film is the brainchild of director Chad Darnell (“Birthday Cake”), who has long been working on the project.

Alaska is slated to play the part of Gender, a member of The Johnny Depp Clones, LaRue’s porn model and drag queen band. Visage’s role Anita is a composite of television hosts that provides the film’s through-line. Belli will play the late transgender porn model Karen Dior.

Stefano was born Nicholas Iacona. He began his porn career in 1989, and with mentoring from Chi Chi LaRue, quickly carved out a niche in the industry as an insatiable power bottom. In 1992, he won the Best Actor Trophy at the Gay Erotic Video Awards.

Casting for the titular role has yet to be revealed.

Off the porn set, Stefano appeared in Madonna’s video for “Deeper and Deeper.” He was also rumored to have had an affair with businessman David Geffen.

In 1994, Stefano died of an overdose of cocaine, morphine, heroin and ketamine at the age of 26. He left behind a legacy of over 50 films.
