James Franco Writing a Vampire Romance Novel?


In Esquire's cover feature on scholarly General Hospital star James Franco, we learn that the actor recently read Twilight "for a project ... It's crazy how much sexual tension there is [in Twilight]. It just builds and builds. I mean it never stops." He continues: "You probably know I have a lot of projects. But that one is way, way off," he says. "It's just something I'm thinking about ... I want to write a children's book. Someday." And he's apparently serious about it — of the book that inspired his current project, this weekend's Eat, Pray, Love, he says only this: "My character mostly appears in the first twenty pages ... And I can definitely say I read the first twenty pages." [Esquire]
