James Franco To Direct Movies Of William Faulkner, Cormac McCarthy Books

Over the years, I have been accused of being an overachiever. But if I am, then James Franco is an over-over-over-over-over-overachiever. Unfulfilled with his life as a successful actor who’s hosting the Academy Awards this year, James is also an artist (working on an exhibit inspired by “Three’s Company”), author (who published Palo Alto, a collection of short stories), and graduate student (who is enrolled in more than five programs across the country, including getting a Ph.D. in English at Yale). And now the dude has set his sights on writing screenplays and directing. And we’re not talking about stoner comedies here. Franco’s first project on the docket is William Faulkner’s stream-of-consciousness masterpiece As I Lay Dying, a book it took me multiple reads and many months discussing in an American Literature class to feel like I’d fully wrapped my head around. Franco is currently in talks to write the script and be behind the camera as the novel is brought to life onscreen.

According to the National Enquirer (I know, a dubious source), after his cancer went into remission, Hall decided he no longer wanted to have children, a dealbreaker for Carpenter. If this is true, how sad. Imagine going into a long-term relationship/marriage with someone, agreeing on such a key aspect of where you see your lives headed together, only to have your partner up and change their mind one day.
