Former General Hospital star and Oscar nominee James Franco (ex-Franco) is the latest celebrity to launch a Indiegogo campaign to pay for a film, but there’s a twist. The $500,000 Franco is hitting fans up for will be used to produce not one, but three films based on his 2010 book Palo Alto, according to The Wrap.
Franco has big plans for the money: a trio of feature-length films directed by four up-and-coming talents. "Memoria" will be co-directed by Nina Ljeti and Vladimir de Fontenay; "Killing Animals" will be directed by Bruce Thierry Cheung; and "Yosemite" will be directed by Gabrielle Demestree. Franco hopes to begin shooting this August.
