Dave and James Franco to Star in Feature Film, About Themselves


Dave Franco tells MTV:

"There's also a feature film that I'm writing for my brother and I to star in, where we play versions of ourselves named Davie and James. Without giving away too much, it all takes place around Thanksgiving and Christmas break around our hometown of Palo Alto [California]. Our real family will be in it, my real friends from home will be in it, and the vibe of it is going to be an extended version of our Funny or Die videos. It's going to be difficult for me, because it's now a 90-minute version of him giving me sh-- and making fun of me."

And hopefully grandma's in it too.

  1. This sounds absolutely unwatchable, like I'm Still Here only or those Apatow movies featuring his dreadful wife and kids. Can't Franco focus his efforts on Blood Meridian or that Sal Mineo biopic instead of such a hideous vanity project?

  2. Anything that keeps Franco away from Faulkner.

    As I Lay Dying is a terrible, terrible novel.

  14. Sorry Joe but he is correct- "...My brother and I." Dave is hilarious in that Funny or Die stint of hot sex talk with another guy. lmao seriously.
