Boy Culture: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Patrick Bauchau has signed on to star in filmmaker Q. Allan Brocka's second feature, Boy Culture, described as a contemporary gay date movie based on the book by Matthew Rettenmund.

"Culture," which starts shooting this week in Seattle, tells the story of a successful male escort's tangled romantic relationships with his two roommates and an older, enigmatic male client. The story deals with such issues as monogamy, fidelity and the nature of love between interracial and multigenerational gay couples.

Brocka adapted the book with Philip Pierce. The film also stars Derek Magyar, Darryl Stephens and Jonathon Trent. It is being produced by Victor Simpkins (Swingers), Stephen Israel (Swimming With Sharks) and Pierce.
