A poem for James Franco, in honor of his poetry

18 September 2014 8:28 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

This morning, Time debuted two new poems from renowned poet—sorry, actor—sorry, graduate student—sorry, who knows what anymore—James Franco. The pieces come from Franco’s new book, Hollywood Dreaming: Stories, Pictures, and Poems.

The first, “Angelz,” is about Franco’s experience filming Spring Breakers. (In the second stanza, he even seems to start writing in character as gangster Alien, using “z” instead of “s.”) The second poem is an ode to Franco’s Milk co-star Sean Penn.

There’s really only one way to respond to this brave* new work—which is why EW has composed a »

8 Strange Moments from James Franco’s New Book

11 September 2014 12:16 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

What do Elizabeth Taylor, Lindsay Lohan and James Franco have in common? They’re all prominently featured in James Franco’s new book, “Hollywood Dreaming.”

His sixth book won’t hit bookshelves until Sept. 23, but Variety took an early peek to pick out some of the most notable snippets in the collection of stories, photos and poems, which is broken up into three parts, along with an introduction.

There’s a section titled “Sprang Brake,” in which Franco seems to channel his “Spring Breakers” character Alien. There are no fewer than four different poems about Sean Penn. There’s some inside information on what went down before the Oscars that he hosted with Anne Hathaway. And there’s a lot of Lindsay Lohan.

The entire volume clocks in at 174 pages, so there’s plenty more than what’s featured here, including bits about Franco’s life and childhood.

Mike Cahill Will Helm Syfy’s The Magicians Pilot

3 September 2014 7:52 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Lev Grossman’s urban fantasy novel The Magicians has been slowly making its way to the small screen since the book’s 2009 publication, and since Syfy became involved last month, work on the pilot episode of a Magicians series has accelerated. Now, we’re hearing that the network has tapped Another Earth director Mike Cahill to helm the show’s first installment.

Cahill’s past projects make him an intriguing and promising choice for The Magicians. His 2011 film Another Earth was a thought-provoking sci-fi story filled with real human emotion, and his follow-up I, Origins, which arrived earlier this year, worked to cement Cahill’s status as a talented director to watch.

Announcing the director’s involvement in The Magicians, Bill McGoldrick, executive vice president of original content at Syfy, said the following in an official statement:

“We were impressed with Mike’s feature work and his passion for this material. »

I Origins Director Mike Cahill to Helm The Magicians TV Show Pilot

2 September 2014 12:56 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The Magicians TV show is finally taking shape.  Just after the third and final book in author Lev Grossman’s phenomenal The Magicians trilogy debuted atop the New York Times Bestseller list, THR reports that Another Earth and I Origins filmmaker Mike Cahill has been tapped to helm the pilot for Syfy’s TV series adaptation.  Crudely described as “Harry Potter for adults”, the books revolve around a group of twentysomethings who, after graduating from a secret magician school hidden away in New York, discover that the magical fantasy world they read about as kids is real and poses a grave danger.  The books—The Magicians, The Magician King, and The Magician’s Land—are tremendous, and essentially tackle the premise with a realistic “what would really happen” bent, delving deep into issues of depression, loss, love, and friendship.  Seriously, I cannot recommend them highly enough.

14 August 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

The Brothers Hawkins have arrived on the scene with a loud bang that could be seen as an ode to a favourite weapon of choice in the crime genre. Now as their feature directorial debut, We Gotta Get Out of This Place, makes its way into UK cinemas, HeyUGuys had the opportunity to lightly interrogate the filmmaking duo, as they shared with us their thoughts on the creative process and the first film in their directorial canon.

Why a career in filmmaking? Was there that one inspirational moment?

Zeke Hawkins: We grew up at the movies. Whilst our parents were trying to deal with having two boys, we would go to the cinema four times a week throughout our childhood. So we have always loved movies. In terms of a seminal moment, I remember when I was eighteen and I first saw Steven Soderbegh’s Out of Sight. It »

James Franco Goes Blonde for Gus Van Sant's New Movie (Photo)

12 August 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If we can say anything about James Franco, it's that he knows how to promote his smaller projects with aplomb. He posted a few snaps of his new blonde hairdo to Instagram, and instantly the Internet is abuzz with news about his role in the new movie "Michael." The award-winning Gus Van Sant is an executive producer on the project, which is about a gay journalist named Michael Glatze who becomes an "ex-gay" pastor. In the movie, Michael quits the magazine he co-founded, "Young Gay America," breaks up with his boyfriend (played by Zachary Quinto), and marries a woman (Emma Roberts).

Although Van Sant is "only" the executive producer, having his name attached is no small deal. He's directed numerous influential movies with award-winning performances, including "My Own Private Idaho," "Good Will Hunting," and "Milk," so if even one of Franco's social media fans takes it upon themselves to investigate his work, »
