James Franco, Kate Hudson to make movie about porn

Pin it

After almost a full fourteen minutes of not hearing from James Franco, we were beginning to speculate. "Could this be it?" we asked ourselves. "Is our long national nightmare over?"

Then, on the fifteenth minute, a flurry of Franco news flew our way — and it was sexy news, no less! Whew. So let's start with some remarks that give us hints as to how Franco feels about sex tapes and porn:

I think if anybody who has made a home sex tape knows, what feels best doesn’t always look best [laughter]. I remember when I was nineteen doing that, and then watching it back and thinking, oh, that looks horrible. So what Nicole [Kidman] is talking about, yeah, you have a lot of respect for those actors in pornography, because they are really not just doing it, they’re really selling it. It’s the same thing with a kiss. It’s not just the kiss that feels best, it’s an image. Something different is happening if it’s a good kiss.

Luckily for him, his respect for porn won't go to waste. Word on the street has Franco and Kate Hudson starring in a new Linda Lovelace biopic, in which Hudson would play Deep Throat star Lovelace and Franco would play porn producer Chuck Traynor. Or who knows, maybe it'll be the other way around; when Franco is involved, impossible is nothing.

Well, that's all we have for now, but all this should keep you sated until our next James Franco round-up, which will probably be up by the time you close this tab.
