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.
