Bros producer didn’t trust straight director to make sex scenes ‘hot’ ThePipaNews

Co-producer of new gay rom-com BrosGuy Branum, has joked that he supervised the film’s straight director to make sure the sex scenes were “hot” enough.

Directed by Forgetting Sarah MarshallNicholas Stoller, Bros follows the love life of Bobby (Billy Eichner), a gay podcaster who meets and quickly falls for gym rat Aaron (Luke Macfarlane).

Along with Eichner, the all-LGBTQ+ cast includes Bowen Yang, Harvey Fierstein, star Miss Lawrence and RuPaul’s Drag Race winner Symone – to name a few.

In an interview with Page sixco-producer and actor Branum spilled details about Stoller, queer club scenes and the heavy use of Grindr on set.

“I was there every day for some of the sex scenes,” Branum said. “Our director is straight and I thought, ‘Someone has to tell you [if it’s] hot or not.

“I think a straight woman could do it. I think there are some straight men who could do it… but I’d have to double-check Nicholas Stoller’s work.”

Grindr on set “exploded”

Branum explained that his phone was “exploding” with Grindr notifications due to the all-queer role during filming.

“I didn’t meet anybody. It was at a workplace. I couldn’t do it. But I’m not saying I didn’t do it. And I’m not saying I did it,” he said.

“I was very professional but I opened Grindr once on my phone and my phone basically exploded… There was a lot of Grindr out there.”

He added that the actors weren’t the only thing authentically queer about the film’s production, with nightclub scenes full of “500 writhing men”.

“I love that they made a gay club act and feel like a real gay club,” Branum said.

Universal Pictures confirmed it on Monday (September 26). Bros comes not shown in the Middle East.

The first R-rated gay rom-com made by the studio has been pulled from the region “due to cultural and commercial reasons,” a source said. IndieWire.

It is not expected to be shown in Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Kuwait, where the nations previously banned several queer-themed films this year, including Doctor Strange 2.

Most countries in the Middle East prohibit same-sex relationships, with the highest penalty in Saudi Arabia being the death penalty.

However, Eichner has said that Bros was created with the LGBTQ+ community as a top priority, which provides PinkNews and other LGBTQ+ stores a first look at Bros trailer in May in an effort to increase its queer visibility.

He said, “As you know, Bros is historic in several ways.

“It’s the first gay rom ever released by a major studio, it’s the first major studio film with an all-LGBTQ+ cast in all the roles – even the hot ones – and obviously I’m the first openly gay man to ever write and starred in his own major studio film, which is bizarre and harrowing but somehow true.”

Bros will be released in US cinemas on Friday (September 30) and in the UK on October 28.
