James Franco is at it again. The Oscar nominee/host has taken on yet another quirky project, this one an off-Broadway play based on the '70s sitcom "Three's Company."
The idea for the play grew out of Franco's recent Sundance Film Festival art installation, "Three's Company: A Drama," in which the show's first three episodes were given a dramatic movie makeover and then screened in a re-creation of the characters' living room.
"The 'Three's Company' people contacted us like, 'What's going on?'" Franco, 32, tells MTV News. "They were like, 'Yes, we've been trying to figure out ways of bringing [the show] back in some form or another. We want to do more projects with you.' So now, we're planning — and this is serious — 'Three's Company,' the off-Broadway play."
It will be "probably a couple years" before the stage show gets off the ground, says Franco, as it will be based on a completely new storyline.
"I think it needs to be developed a little more," he says of the play's concept, "something a little different but connected to the original."
As long as I get to play the filthy Mrs. Roeper!
3sCompany is terrible. The gay stereotype is not only old, it's STILL degrading and offensive. Why not bring back the black-face minstrel show too?
I'd never heard of James Franco before he showed up on 'General Hospital' but what I saw on GH most DEFINITELY did NOT impress
me. Couldn't act his way outta a paper bag! If he doesn't act in 3s Company, it has promise
Oh great....Another FA GG OT comes out of the closet.
I thought CNN was able to block spam...

Ana Banana, stop spam-a-lama-ing!
Wouldn't the whole "pretend you're a gay guy, Jack" be just a little ridiculous in today's world? Not to mention out-dated. What's next-"Bosom Buddies: The Musical"?

I'm tired of hearing about this pompous guy...
I heard he's a Packers fan too lol
A BIG packers fan. I hear he wanted to play catcher for the packers.
Hello. I am Dave Chapelle. . . Dave C rules !
I heard James Franco is a Packers fan.
OH NO THAT JAMES FRANKO WUT A RASCALL ALWAYS UP TO SOMETHING
I'd love to see this! TV Land airs the show and I DVR it occasionally. They should make a movie- not just an off-broadway play, so everyone can see it.
I'd watch it so long as they remake the "Bake Off" episode....arguably the best pie fight to ever grace a television screen. Pure messiness and fun.
