[Movies] James Franco Looking to Direct and Star in Beautiful People Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 01.17.2013
New project for Franco which he will likely direct...
Deadline reports that James Franco is making plans to direct and star in the movie Beautiful People.
The project is based on the true story of Jay Sebring and was written by Lauren Wild. Here is the official synopsis from the movie's Facebook page:
"The 1960s in Hollywood - the action-packed setting for the love story of Jay Sebring & Sharon Tate. Steve McQueen, Bruce Lee, The Rat Pack, even Jim Morrison were friends of Jay and Sharon. Their love was legend in Hollywood. Their murders at the hands of the Manson 'family' in 1969 effectively ended the sixties' peace-love age of innocence."
Franco will also produce the movie alongside David Bortolucci, Miles Levy, Vince Jolivette and Julie Yorn.
