You throw into this mix the obvious resemblance between the Franco brothers, and suddenly this is DePalma-levels of creepy. The very making of The Room, a film that feels like a cry for help from a crazy person, is a Heart Of Darkness-type story of absolute power corrupting absolutely.
“There’s a joke where – I’m still not sure if I ever said it out loud or if I was just thinking it. But during the montage where we’re getting back at Seth and Rose, and we cut their bush into the shape of a guy bending over, I wanted to say the line..."
Franco went on to explain that a big portion of Now You See Me 2 will be spent exploring who this tight-knit band of illusionists really are off of the stage.

Franco plays a drug dealer who is also the most popular kid in high school, and the target of undercover NARC agents Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum.
