Multiple James Francos Converge On 'General Hospital'

"Oscars" James Franco meets Art Gallery James Franco meets Evil "General Hospital" James Franco. James Franco seems to be doing so many different projects, from art gallery movie director to recently appointed Wizard of Oz, that it was only a matter of time before the Francoverse started collapsing in on itself. Evidence: In this clip from "General Hospital," which Franco has a recurring character on because he needs to fill the occasional bits of free time in his schedule, his murdering "The Franco" is going to a black tie affair. Could it be..."The Academy Awards?" That sly reference to his role in 127 Hours makes me think "perhaps." They even worked in his self-portraits and compulsive multi-tasking. Oh man, does this mean his role as a scientist in Rise of the Apes will somehow tie into Akira? I'm hoping that's a "yes" too. For now, though, it looks like "General Hospital" is the nexus point between Franco universes. (The Playlist)

James Franco Now Available In Straight To Video Form

James Franco doesn't have enough of your attention yet. It's been a while since anything's been heard from actor/writer/student/professor of Egyptology James Franco, presumably because he's been trotting the globe on his latest adventure. Or maybe he was just working on Shadows & Lies. Here's what it's all about, Francophiles: "Franco plays William Vincent, a quiet and mysterious criminal. When he falls for a New York gangster’s (Josh Lucas) favorite call girl (Julianne Nicholson), Vincent is forced to flee the city, threatened with death if he should ever return. But after four years in exile, Vincent secretly returns intent on rescuing the woman he loves from her dangerous fate." Sounds pretty cool. The movie is coming out on DVD, Blu-ray, and VOD on June 7, but you can see a clip from the movie above. Enjoy, because Franco just doesn't have enough of your attention yet. (Film School Rejects)


James Franco Picks A Fight With Jason Statham In 'Homefront' Trailer

He's going to get his ass beat spectacularly. We've already seen James Franco saw off his own arm in 127 Hours, but now it looks like we'll get the chance to see Jason Statham tear it off and beat him with it. It's a story as old as time. Little girl uses martial arts training to kick the shit out of big, fat bully. Bully's mom hires a sinister meth dealer to get revenge on the little girl. Little girl's undercover cop dad beats down every cartoon redneck in town. If only she didn't wear that hat that day. Homefront also stars Kate Bosworth, Frank Grillo, and Winona Ryder with Gary Fleder directing from a script by Sylvester Stallone, who presumably didn't feel like punching and kicking swamp people this time around.


Seth Rogen And James Franco Bring Us The Trailer For 'The Interview'

I couldn't think of worse spies if I tried. Which I haven't. Seth Rogen, having sometimes, but still not all that often decided to stray from the road-tested formula of being a giant, grown-up boy, has once again teamed with James Franco and buddy/partner Evan Goldberg to bring us The Interview. It seems pretty high concept for him, too. The Interview follows Rogen and Franco as they take a diplomatic trip to North Korea to kill Kim Jung Un. Huh. That's...that's something. Even though the project is something of a departure, somewhat in the action vein, you'll still see a lot of familiar faces, including fan fave Lizzie Caplan. Take a look.


James Franco Does K-Fed In 'Spring Breakers' Trailer

You girls wanna get weird? The first trailer for Harmony Korine's Spring Breakers is here and it looks like Alpha Dog filmed on the Girls Gone Wild set. Ashley Benson, Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez, and Rachel Korine star as four girls who fund their spring break vacation by breaking the law. Faced with the prospect of living the spring break lifestyle forever and running their fingers through James Franco's sick Kevin Federline braids, the girls get in over their head by getting into it with Gucci Mane. Not a wise move. The man has an ice cream cone carved into his face. I don't know if that makes someone tough or not but it at least warrants you keep your distance from them.


'Monte Carlo' Trailer Looks Generally Horrible

It's like a trip to the dentist, but cheaper! The Disney Channel made a "Sex and the City" film! Leighton Meester is Carrie because she's the leader, Katie Cassidy is Charlotte because she's bland, Selena Gomez is Samantha because she's slutty, Andie MacDowell is Samantha because she's insanely old, and Brett Cullen is Miranda because they both like to have sex with women. Women be travellin' in this trailer for Monte Carlo, in which a gaggle of girls go on a European vacation gone awry until one of them (Gomez, the ethnic-looking one) gets mistaken for royalty, at which point their trip becomes FAB-U-LOUS! There's also a really big lobster featured here, which was the high point of the trailer for me.
