James Franco and His Entire Family May Make a Movie Together?
This past Christmas we highlighted a special 127 Hours themed holiday greeting from James Franco and his real-life grandmother. But now it sounds like we might get a feature film with the whole Franco family sometime in the future. Incase you didn't know, James Franco's younger brother Dave Franco (left) is also an actor who has appeared in films like Charlie St. Cloud and Greenberg along with TV series like "Greek" and "Scrubs." Well the younger Franco, while talking to MTV recently, revealed that he's working on a script for a film in which the entire Franco family would star. It will be the most genuine family comedy ever.
You may have also seen Dave starring with his future Oscar host brother in some Funny or Die videos teaching invaluable lessons about acting. Apparently they're working on some more for the online comedy behemoth, but then he also revealed this bit of news:
"There's also a feature film that I'm writing for my brother and I to star in, where we play versions of ourselves named Davie and James. Without giving away too much, it all takes place around Thanksgiving and Christmas break around our hometown of Palo Alto [California]. Our real family will be in it, my real friends from home will be in it, and the vibe of it is going to be an extended version of our Funny or Die videos. It's going to be difficult for me, because it's now a 90-minute version of him giving me shit and making fun of me."
That sounds like it could really be a great project, but is the entire Franco family as talented as the two brothers? Perhaps it will be somewhat of a mockumentary so their acting skills don't have to be honed so perfectly? All I know is James has been taking on some very interesting projects recently, and this would be yet another intriguing installment in the actor's career. As for Dave, his star is certainly rising, and as difficult as it might be to measure up to his brother's work, he seems to be doing his best. Are you interested in a Franco family film?
