When it came time to shooting a gay threesome scene in “I Am Michael,” which premieres Thursday night at the Sundance Film Festival, first-time director Justin Kelly erred on the side of caution. He didn’t want to make the encounter between his three actors — James Franco, Zachary Quinto and Charlie Carver — too risqué for fear of alienating moviegoers on the story about Michael Glatze, a gay activist who renounces his homosexuality and turns to God.
“I wanted to appeal to a wider audience,” Kelly says. “All my gay filmmaker friends thought it would be awesome if this film could be something that Christians would see.”
