Gold star gay-baiters Nick Jonas and James Franco—who, lest we forget, is almost 40—star in frat drama Goat, which promises to be the most homoerotic film Franco's made since...his last one?

Based off Brad Land's 2004 memoir of the same name, the film stars Pride's Ben Schnetzer as a 19-year-old Land "reeling from a terrifying assault." Brad enrolls into college with his brother Brett (Jonas) and pledges the same fraternity, which ends up testing Brad and his loyalty to Brett "in brutal ways."

Judging from the red band trailer, there's a lot of naked dude action, but that seems to belie a more serious story about America's toxic fraternity culture and its corresponding sexual impropriety, along with taking a glimpse at the psyche of privileged, sexually-repressed white men weary of political correctness and unsure of their place in the world—you know, what Fight Club was about only set in college.
