James Franco is a very busy guy. This year alone, he’s got more than a handful of projects being released, and many of those he directed. There’s the porn drama Lovelace, Sam Raimi’s highly-anticipated Oz the Great and Powerful, Harmony Korine’s Spring Breakers, his own art film Interior. Leather Bar (which opens at Sundance this week), an adaptation of William Faulkner’s As I Lay Dying, and so many more.
And he’s not done. Franco has just signed on to star in and direct Beautiful People, a biopic based on the life of famous hairstylist Jay Sebring, who was murdered by the Manson Family.
The film is set in 1960′s Hollywood – the action-packed setting for the love story of Jay Sebring and Sharon Tate. Steve McQueen, Bruce Lee, The Rat Pack, even Jim Morrison were friends of Jay and Sharon. Their love was legend in Hollywood. »
