There’s Going to Be a James Franco Documentary

There's been a whole lot of James Franco out there lately, and we're about to be treated to yet another generous helping of everyone's favorite professional dilettante. According to The Wrap, a documentary chronicling "a year in the personal and professional life of Oscar-nominated actor James Franco" is on its way, courtesy of first-time director Lisa Vangellow. Franco: A Documentary started filming last June and is in the early editing stages. Sources close to the production told The Wrap that Klaus Biesenbach, chief curator-at-large of New York's Museum of Modern Art, and Seth Rogen are both expected to appear in the film, which will follow Franco's exploits in art, academia, theater, and film. Hopefully this project will finally allow James Franco's creative endeavors to get the publicity they deserve.
