James Franco 'Psychological Thriller' Heads To Tribeca Film Festival


A film by James Franco will be among those shown at the forthcoming Tribeca Film Festival in New York, with a recent festival announcement announcing the first 46 of its planned 90 films to be screened during the event that runs from April 18th and April 19th. "The quality of American independent cinema is well represented this year, but international diversity has its share, too, with films from countries as varied as Cuba and Kenya," the gala's artistic director Freferic Boyer said, who himself has previously worked on the world famous Cannes Film Festival.
The Washington Post reports that among the films being featured at Tribeca includes one made by James Franco while he was moonlighting on the daytime soap opera 'General Hospital.' Described as an "experimental psychological thriller" about "a celebrity's escalating paranoia." It's called 'Francophrenia (or: Don't Kill Me, I Know Where the Baby Is).' Co-directed by Franco and Ian Olds, the film (which premiered at the Rotterdam International Festival) uses footage Franco shot while appearing on 'General Hospital.'
Franco of course made his name worldwide by appearing as Harry Osborn in the Sam Raimi's 'Spider-Man' trilogy, yet he has a list of impressive credits beyond that, including 'Pineapple Express,' 'Milk,' '127 Hour's and 'James Dean' which saw him win a Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Miniseries or TV Film.
