Unstoppable James Franco to direct William Faulkner, Cormac McCarthy

Pin it

Hey, what's James Franco up to right now, today? Why, he's simply out of control: the guy is wrapping up talks to direct movie adaptations of both William Faulkner's As I Lay Dying and Cormac McCarthy's Blood Meridian. Oh, and guess who wrote the scripts for those adaptations? Yep, James Franco wrote those scripts.

My goodness, America — we've created a monster. Will actor, writer, artist, and graduate student James Franco become actor, writer, artist, graduate student, and auteur James Franco? How long until James Franco has adapted every single Southern Gothic/Western novel ever, forcing James Franco to start writing new ones himself? What do you want from us, James Franco?!
