James Franco Fever: More Directing Gigs, Three's Company

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

In addition to rescuing princesses in a "high"-concept stoner quest, participating in the prequel Ape-ocalypse, co-hosting the 2011 Oscars and possibly being nominated for 127 Days, the once geeky freak James Franco is now also in talks to direct two, big-deal literary works. This high-brow arc, however, has not compromised the man's sense of humor. He also has a Three's Company installation planned for Sundance. Expect a full LAist report from that front line.
