James Franco - James Franco To Direct Ex-girlfriend In Off-broadway Play

James Franco will direct his ex-girlfriend Ahna O'reilly in a new off-Broadway production of Robert Boswell's play The Long Shrift.

The Milk actor is currently wowing audiences on Broadway with his star turn in Of Mice and Men alongside Irish actor Chris O'Dowd at the Longacre Theatre, but he will head over to off-Broadway venue the Rattlestick Playwrights Theater to make his stage directorial debut.

Franco has some close ties to the cast of The Long Shrift, a play about a man who is released from prison after being convicted of rape. He dated The Help star O'Reilly for four years until they split in 2011, while Scott Haze, who was Franco's co-star in 2013 film Child of God, will also appear in the production, which runs between July (14) and August (14).
