Dave Franco The Room

James Franco‘s upcoming film based on the book, The Disaster Artist, just got a little weirder. The book tells the behind the scenes story of the making of cult classic, The Room. One of the film’s co-stars Greg Sestero (“Oh hi, Mark”) co-wrote the book about the unfathomable production of the notoriously terrible film and Franco purchased the rights earlier this year. He’ll direct and play one of the film’s two leads, The Room director and star Tommy WiseauSeth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are producing.

One of the funniest threads in the book is the awkward bromance between Wiseau and Sestero and, in classic Franco fashion, he’s upping the awkward. It seems his younger brother Dave Franco (Neighbors) has been tapped to play Sestero, the film’s main character. Read More »

Spring Breakers: The Second Coming

Just in case you wondered: that recently-announced sequel to Spring Breakers is being made without the participation or even the consent of Harmony Korine. The director of Gummo and Trash Humpers masterminded Spring Breakers as a savage, strange fever dream of excess and influence, but this sequel will probably be… something else. Something more tame, regardless of how much flesh and blood hits the screen. Read More »

James Franco Tommy Wiseau

A couple months ago James Franco optioned rights to Greg Sestero‘s book The Disaster Artist: My Life Inside the Room, about the making of Tommy Wiseau‘s masterpiece of bad cinema, The Room. At that point Franco was set as producer and director, and roped in Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg to produce alongside him. But it always seemed like Franco had to end up playing Wiseau, too. Now Seth Rogen says that is indeed the plan.  Read More »

James Franco-Rise of the Apes Crop

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes takes place ten years after Rise of the Planet of the Apes which suggests the former’s stars won’t appear in the sequel.

It turns out, Franco does have a cameo. The twist is, Franco didn’t know about it. When asked about the cameo, the actor said he wasn’t aware he appeared in the film, and that the filmmakers didn’t ask his permission. Read his quotes, and the possible explanation, below. Read More »
