James Franco, Claire Danes and Alan Cummings join up for Maladies
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Word on the street is that James Franco is working with a guy named Carter (yup, that’s his full name) on a small indie project called MALADIES that will also star: Claire Danes, Catherine Keener and Alan Cummings. The story follows a young and successful actor who decides to retire at a young age because of what is believed to be a mental illness. Franco is going to squeeze this film into an already busy 2011 where he will not only be hosting the Academy Award with Anne Hathaway, but will also be shooting WHILE WE’RE YOUNG and possibly directing THE BROKEN TOWER. And oh yeah, he also has a few films that will be released that include YOUR HIGHNESS and RISE OF THE APES.
James Franco looks to finally be hitting his stride in Hollywood and with a potential Oscar nomination for this years 127 HOURS he seems to be unstoppable. He’s definitely one to keep an eye on.
