Not only is James Franco attached to seemingly every single movie that’s currently in development, not only is he attending school, not only is he hosting the Oscars and not only is he a Best Actor nominee for his work in 127 Hours, Franco has a new art exhibition opening in Los Angeles this week. And it’s a doozy.
Unfinished is an exhibition featuring work by Franco and director Gus Van Sant that will be open at the Gagosian Gallery in Beverly Hills from February 26-April 9. It features two films, Endless Idaho and My Own Private River, which Franco edited from unused footage from Van Sant’s film 1991 My Own Private Idaho. Endless Idaho is a 12 hour (yes, you read that right) look at the making of Van Sant’s film while My Own Private River is a portrait of the late, great actor River Phoenix, who starred in Van Sant’s original film.
