James Franco needs to stop being so goddamn lazy. I mean he only has two films playing at Sundance, recently signed on to direct and star in Beautiful People and found time to write this poem. His upcoming schedule includes half-a-dozen new releases, including Oz the Great and Powerful. Franco has now decided to direct and star in an adaptation of American Tabloid, a novel from James Ellroy that follows the lives of law enforcement officers as they’re slowly drawn into the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Hit the jump to see Franco talk about American Tabloid in a recent video interview.
