Remember that art project James Franco was co-directing, the one with all the gay sex? Oh, you need us to be more specific? The one with unsimulated gay sex. Well, Indiewire reports that the piece will be titled James Franco's Cruising, since the meta project has Franco (playing himself, natch) attempting to re-create lost S&M footage from William Friedkin's controversial 1980 gay thriller Cruising. Expect significantly more screen beejers than will be seen in Franco's next movie, a Jason Statham action film.
