New Doc to Explore a Year in the Life of the Very Busy James Franco
Have you had enough of James Franco yet? Well, no matter what your answer, you're going to get more. Franco has become a renaissance man of art in all forms from painting to filmmaking and even some poetry in between. You might be wondering how a man who has been involved and linked to nearly three dozen projects on film and television alone has time for everything. And soon we'll find out. The Wrap has learned that first-time filmmaker Lisa Vangellow is directing and producing Franco: A Documentary, which will dive into a year in the professional and personal life of the Oscar-nominated star of all sorts of films.
The documentary is already near completion, and will likely feature plenty of Franco's famous friends, collaborators and more. Friend and frequent co-star Seth Rogen has been confirmed to be in the film along with Klaus Biesenbach, curator of New York's Museum of Modern Art. There's likely plenty more who get in on the fun. We'll probably get a look at Franco behind the scenes on some of his various films as an actor, director and producer, and likely see more of his artistic side as well. We're also wondering if that Instagram scandal where he was flirting with a 17 year old girl will make the cut. It be a unique scenario and inside look at the side effects and downside to fame. Anyway, the documentary began filming in June of 2013 and is now in the earlier editing stages. Stay tuned to learn more.
