Variety reports the project will re-team him with Kink director Christina Voros, who he's worked with on a number of projects, including the 2010 SNL documentary Saturday Night and several other Franco-directed works. Hopefully Franco's work modeling for the brand will not affect his objectivity when it comes to reporting Giannini's invention of a $135 t-shirt to make it look like your baby is wearing suspenders.
