What will James Franco do next?
The actor, who seems deeply committed to off-beat projects these days, has a new one. “Three’s Company: The Drama” is billed as “a multi-media examination of the classic '70s sitcom,” which Franco will present at the New Frontier program of the next Sundance Film Festival to be held in January.
The New York Times reports that the festival description provided about the project says, “Television has undoubtedly shaped our world: our increased exposure to dramatic entertainment, the shapes of our houses, the shape of the time in our day. In this piece James Franco hopes to pull television from the box and view it from ‘a slightly oblique perspective.’”
Franco is becoming quite well known for not living the life of a conventional movie star. He went back to college, took a role on “General Hospital,” has written for the magazine Esquire, and produced a short documentary film about an episode of “Saturday Night Live.”
