Better dust off those leather chaps and that harness, because Special Film Company has released a teaser clip for TOM, their upcoming biopic about Touko, the artist who became internationally known as gay erotic drawing master Tom of Finland.

The clip shows Touko's titillating run-in with two security guards before we see him emerge from a bathroom stall, racy drawing in hand, working an Eagle-ready leather look.

According to the film's new official Facebook page, the film will be shot in 2014 and released in 2015. Olli Rahkonen plays Touko and Martti Manninen plays Veli, Touko's lover. 

Somehow unfamiliar with Tom of Finland's work? Read the film's YouTube summary:

Until the year 1971, being gay in Finland could land you in jail for years. There was a boy born in 1920.


In his childhood, he drew pictures of naked men. While drawing, he wore only leather boots.


As a young man, he fought in the war and had sex with his fellow soldiers, both Finnish and German. 


During his adulthood, he lived a double life. By day, a talented advertising artist and a pianist, by night a genius creator of erotic drawings.


We remember him through leather, huge muscles, even larger cocks and humour — empowering the masculine gay man. We know who Tom of Finland is. Now meet Touko.

Check out the teaser below.
