What Is James Franco Doing Now?


Actor/writer/director/producer/artist/student/Broadway star/Oscar host/nominee James Franco just won't let up. Last we heard he was optioning rights for new films, adapting some American classics for the screen, and forcing his grandma into viral videos. Now, he's in talks to play pornographer Chuck Traynor, re-teaming with Howl directors Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman, for a Linda Lovelace biopic--that being a different film than Inferno: A Linda Lovelace Story, which is still set to feature Malin Ackerman as the porn star. This one has an offer out for Kate Hudson to play Lovelace, because Epstein and Friedman are evidently unaware of the level of film Hudson has reduced herself to.

Franco's participation will reportedl mostly depend on his schedule, which, if you haven't been paying attention, is pretty full with doing everything. This guy is making us all look so bad. Especially those of us who make sure to pridefully mention when they've recently done the laundry.
