Though he already has an arthouse film called Francophenia in the works, that is still an insufficient amount of Franco-centrism for James Franco, and the entertainment industry's renaissance man is again staring into the mirror for inspiration. And this time he's looking at Lindsay Lohan, too.
Apparently mistaking Lohan's desperation participation in a Lifetime for the kind of kitsch experiment he himself indulged in with a stint on General Hospital, Franco is reportedly working on a "video/art project" to focus on various Francos and Lohans that exist perpetually in our past, present, and future.
As noted by The Guardian (via), a casting website currently looking for "Lindsay Lohan types" and "James Franco types" to portray the "two Hollywood celebrities" at ages 13, 21, 30, 45 and 60 (or 12, 28, 55, 80, years-decayed, in Lohanyears). No further details were available, but it already sounds like a great opportunity for any baby boomers who often get, "Oh, sorry, I thought you were the guy from Pineapple Express, but 60." Also a great opportunity to make a movie with Lindsay Lohan, but without any of the liability of actually involving Lindsay Lohan.
The Holiday writer-director Nancy Meyers was so prescient...
