It wouldn't be James Franco if James Franco wasn't busy, would it? (We're getting existential on you.) So here we have two more Franco projects to tell you about. The first is Franco's filmed adaptation of William Faulkner's As I Lay Dying, to which he's recently added Danny McBride, Logan Marshall-Green, and ex-girlfriend Ahna O'Reilly. At the same time, Franco (as an actor this time) and Mila Kunis have joined Paul Haggis's Third Person. Later, we'll tell you what new projects Franco has picked up since you began reading this item.
