Did you think it was getting too quiet on the James Franco front? Well, the Oscar nominated, Indie Spirit winning actor is busy prepping his movie, “Sal,” in Los Angeles. The story of actor Sal Mineo will commence shooting on June 10th as a low key and low budget film that will largely feature unknown actors. (Well, they’re known to someone, but not to us.) Franco will be pretty busy all through the month of June in L.A. On the 20th he debuts his film, “The Broken Tower,” which is really his directing debut, at the Los Angeles Film Festival. He stars in it, too, as writer Hart Crane. Franco’s mom, Betsy, is in the movie, too. Meanwhile, on June 7th, a film Franco acted in with Josh Lucas, formerly known as “William Vincent” (the film, not Lucas) is being released on DVD. Now called “Shadows and Lies,” the drama was directed by Franco’s former teacher, Jay Anania, whose sister was the remarkable, late Elizabeth Edwards. Got all that? And then: if Franco finishes “Sal” in time, he’ll head back to Warren Wilson College for a writing class before scooting off to Detroit to shoot “Oz, the Great and Wonderful.” And what are you doing this summer? Huh?
