James Franco Is Working On A Whole New "Homo-Sex-Art Film"

The gayest straight man in history--or maybe the straightest gay man--James Franco has a delightful taste for the homo-sexy-arty.

There was his short film The Feast of Stephen, a controversial melange of gang banging and desire that was a far cry from the typical student project, thank you.

Let's not forget the gayest biopic ever made, Milk.

And the second gayest biopic ever made, Howl.

And of course there was The Broken Tower, in which Franco played writer Hart Crane, with his marvelous propensity for blowing sailors.

Hey, that was the gayest biopic ever made. (Drop Milk to number two, and so on.)

Jimmy is my kind of cine-ass!

Well, now word has leaked, as it were, that Franco will team with filmmaker Travis Matthews to create a whole new homo-sex-art film that's gonna ruffle feathers when it plays in a NYC space sometime soon.

I will be there, dressed like Caesar from Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

After all, Franco played Will Rodman.

Why doesn't he do a film based on Edmund White's novel The Beautiful Room Is Empty, or even better, his memoir of the 1970s, City Boy, which includes lots of sex, witty repartee, famous gays and lesbians, and yes, gritty, trashy, dangerous, fun, broke New York City? That would be fantabulous!

His performance art of messing with our gayday via his constant queer projects is his best work, and is at a high level. (I think he's str8, not even bi.) As for his huffpost writing and his movies - "Milk" is not his movie, he's only a supporting actor in it - all seems pretentious to me, but what do I know? He sure creates a lot of works.

Guess I have to (hesitatingly) agree. He's brave and good-hearted in taking on those roles, but at some point he'll have to literally "know" what it's all about (and be honest about knowing it) because the actual component in a gay role, desire, will be the spark that provides the missing flame. I realized this when I saw him in a "straight" role, 127 Hours, and he was terrific, best perf for that year and so on. That's when I knew why he wasn't able to take flight with the gay characters he was trying to pull off.

So I guess Oz will be gay. Maybe he'll be Poz.

Franco stars in the prequel to The Wizard of Oz next year.  Oz The Great and Powerful  The first trailer just came out, and the poster looks great.

My friend and I both agree he is so good looking but so boring, that we both temporarily forgot what his name was. The Hart Crane film was especially forgettable, and unforgivably boring.

just as madonna did in the 80-ties. just goes to show you gay isn´t as mainstream as you think.

he seems to go for shock value a lot, but he does shake things up and whether he's gay or not, he's definitely PRO gay, so more power to him.
