James Franco Now Making Something Described as a ‘Homo-sex-art-film’

+

Your boy James Franco just can’t stop/won’t stop at this point, it seems. Last we heard, he was due to start his own column in Playboy, “Francofile” (a gig that many people who aren’t Academy Award nominated actors would be pretty dang thrilled to grab ahold of), and now it looks like he’s set to return to his 45th love, bizarre art projects. Vulture found a post from director Travis Matthews’ website where he writes about a new project he’s working on with Franco. “Last week I got an email from James Franco’s agent asking if I’d be interested in collaborating with him on a homo-sex-art-film,” Mathews wrote. He goes on to say that they’ll be shooting by the end of July, and the piece is expected to premiere at a show in New York in September, but clearly the most interesting part of that quote is when Matthews refers to his and Franco’s project with the same language that a racist southern cop would use to describe I Love You, Man. “Homo-sex-art-film” could mean a lot of things, but given James Franco’s predilection for things like performing fellatio on presumably prosthetic penises and pick-up basketball games that turn into homoerotic sexual assault, well, that narrows it down, doesn’t it.
