James Franco Made a General Hospital Movie

Surely you did not think that noted performance artist James Franco would miss an opportunity to create? No, indeed: The actor has turned his appearance on the daytime soap opera General Hospital into a "humorous psycho-thriller" called Franchophrenia. The movie, which will debut at this year's Rotterdam International Film Festival, was made "by writing a new script for existing footage shot by Franco on General Hospital." Is anyone else imagining a GH supercut with extra-stoned Franco narration added in? And also, would that be the worst possible outcome of this project? Discuss.
