James Franco is to direct 'As I Lay Dying'.
Speaking about his plans for 2011, James told MTV News: "This summer I'm going to direct a movie based on William Faulkner's novel 'As I Lay Dying'.
"I shoot a test of the whole movie before I make a movie. So we just shot a test."
While he has already shot a test, the cast that appeared in that won't necessarily make the final cut.
The 32-year-old star has been offered the role of Chuck Traynor, a pornographer who married troubled actress Linda, the star of movie 'Deep Throat', with the lead going to Kate.
