James Franco Will Not Do This One Film


In a rare turn of events, James Franco is not going to star in or direct a film. That film: The Garden of Last Days, the Andre Dubus III adaptation he signed on to helm and cast himself in April. Production was scheduled to begin in just a couple weeks, but Franco reportedly pulled out of the film yesterday after already spending $500,000 of his $3 million budget. Deadline says the issue had to do with Franco demanding a young crew that couldn't get the approval of Millennium and their bond stooges. Unfortunately for Franco, he can't get everything he wants. Only looks, money, fame, and a vast and always-busy career that defies easy categorization. Probably got to keep that sweet grill from Spring Breakers, too.
