James Franco Is Turning Fight Club Author's Weirdest Book Into A Movie
Rant: An Oral Biography of Buster Casey, if we’re getting formal, is the story of a guy who earned the vomit-influenced nickname Rant thanks to a particularly disgusting prank he pulled as a child. Though disturbing, the story is engrossing due to Palahniuk’s use of “oral” narratives given by many of the people who knew Rant during his relatively short life.

Sony Editing Seth Rogen's The Interview To Avoid Possible Political Conflicts
One is the alteration of various buttons worn by the North Korean characters in the film, which apparently are accurate representation of what is worn by certain military officials in North Korea, a detail that seems unnecessarily blasphemous.

James Franco Sued Over His New Charles Bukowski Movie
There are a lot of actors who routinely find themselves in more trouble than James Franco, but I’m not sure there’s one who routinely finds himself in the middle of more weirdness. From obnoxious Oscar campaigns to invisible art to underage girls, he’s almost a magnet for the bizarre, which is why the following lawsuit shouldn’t surprise you in the least.

5 Crazy Things North Korea Said In Response To The Interview Trailer
Earlier this month, the first trailer for the Seth Rogen/ James Franco comedy The Interview dropped. It played pretty well here in America, but given its plot follows a group of journalists who decide to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, it didn’t exactly send pleasing ripples through the Asian Communist country.

James Franco Enlists Brother Dave For The Disaster Artist
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.

Watch Seth Rogen And James Franco Kill A World Leader In The Interview Trailer
From the “Western Capitalist Pigs” that brought you This Is the End and Neighbors. That’s funny. And so was both Neighbors and This Is The End, reminding audiences that Rogen and his crew are on a hot streak that isn’t likely to cool with The Interview.

James Franco Denounces Spring Breakers 2, Calls It A 'Poison Ship'
Never mind the fact that Franco is tossing Akerlund and Welsh under the bus, two experienced, skills artists who have proven themselves in the past. Akerlund's aesthetic hovers between challenging and challenged, but he's made a number of really unique and peculiar films. He's not exactly Shawn Levy.

James Franco And Kate Hudson Become Thieves In Good People Trailer
What would you do if you stumbled across $400,000? Would you keep it? Would you call the cops? What if you found it in your home--well, within the portion of your home rented out to a shady tenant? This is the curious conundrum that faces James Franco and Kate Hudson in the upcoming thriller Good People. In the film's first trailer, you get a sense of the temptation and danger these questions arouse.

James Franco To Play 'The Room' Writer-Director Tommy Wiseau In The Disaster Artist
To recount his shady-sounding story of how he raised the money for The Room is pointless: he is an enigma, appearing out of thin air to debut his magnum opus in Los Angeles in the early aughts, buying out entire theaters and, slowly, building a reputation for the movie (which he writes, directs and stars in) that led to midnight screenings nationwide and a bizarre counter-cultural reputation as a fool, a genius, or... well, probably a fool.

No One Bothered Telling James Franco He's In Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes
Much like how his character didn’t mean to be the bearer of the apocalypse, Mr. Franco also apparently didn’t mean to play a cameo role in upcoming sequel, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Yet according to EW, he’s doing just that… whether he knows it or not.

Watch James Franco And Emma Roberts Get Nice And Inappropriate In First 'Palo Alto' Trailer
Sex, drugs, chainsaws, and alcohol are all present and filmed with a style that looks like it runs in the more contemporary branch of the Coppola family tree. Interestingly enough, similar subject matter was covered by Sofia Coppola in her debut film The Virgin Suicides

Judd Apatow Is Still Pissed Off Freaks And Geeks Got Cancelled
Are you still pissed off about Freaks And Geeks get cancelled all the way back in 2000? I am, and let the record show Judd Apatow is too. In fact, the popular director and super producer still carries so much anger from the critically acclaimed show getting axed by NBC that it drives him to keep accomplishing more and more.

Lizzy Caplan Joins James Franco And Seth Rogen In The Interview
It looks like Lizzy Caplan will be reuniting with Freaks and Geeks stars James Franco and Seth Rogen for The Interview, a comedy to be directed, written and produced by Rogen and Evan Goldberg. We learned back in March that Rogen and Franco were re-teaming on screen for The Interview, which would star the duo as a talk show host and produce who accidentally wind up in the middle of a plot to assassinate the prime minister of North Korea.

James Franco Teases The Tragedy of Sal Mineo In Sal Trailer
It’s been a long wait since Sal, a Sal Mineo biopic directed by Renaissance Man James Franco, made its world premiere at the prestigious Venice Film Festival in 2011. But at long last we have a trailer as the film readies for its theatrical opening.

James Franco's As I Lay Dying Is Bypassing Theaters For A VOD Release
Can that even happen? I mean, they do realize that Franco is at the apex of all saturation points, and that people would throw money to see him do just about anything. And this seemed like something of a prestige project, even though it was merely one of a half-dozen or so movies he’ll have been involved in directing this year.

Albert Brooks Joins All-Star Cast For Mark Osborne's The Little Prince
Unfortunately, as with most of the other actors, there’s no real sign of who Brooks will be voicing, and it’s only mentioned that he’ll play “one of the film’s villains.” That’s a strange description, since there aren’t any real villains in The Little Prince, so to speak.

Jason Statham Kicks James Franco's Meth-Dealing Ass In Homefront Trailer
Yes, plenty of what's on display in the Homefront trailer looks ridiculous, from the little girl using MMA fighting skills on the playground to Kate Bosworth's Southern drawl seemingly leftover from the Straw Dogs remake. And watching British Jason Statham arrive in rural America only to beat up its residents reeks of all kinds of cross-country snobbery. But Jason Statham is our British thug, and we love him, and we will let him beat up our hicks if we damn well want to.

James Franco's Oscar Campaign: 'Consider This Sh*t'
If you remember March's Spring Breakers at all, you probably remember it for the performance from James Franco as Alien, a DJ and low-level crook whose catchphrase "Look at my shit!" became its own mini-phenomenon-- and distributor A24 knows it

James Franco Wants You To Help Pay For Three Movies, But It's For Charity
Beyond giving directors somewhat high-profile projects to make, Franco will be donating all proceeds from the sales of the three films to Art of Elysium, a non-profit that encourages actors, artists and musicians to spend time with children suffering from serious medical conditions.

The pilot fixes his plane and tries to get it ready for flight again while the boy tells him stories about his homeworld.
