James Franco Directing a Soap Opera Documentary

During a recent talk show appearance, James Franco revealed his plans to star in a behind-the-scenes documentary about his time on ABC soap opera General Hospital.

“It’s part of a bigger thing. I have big plans for it,” Franco told ABC late night host Jimmy Kimmel. “There’s a movie that I’ve been working on with this great editor based on behind-the-scenes material that we’re probably going to take to Sundance next year.”

Franco stars in Rise of the Planet of the Apes, which opened in theaters last Friday, and was nominated for an Academy Award for his performance in last year’s 127 Hours. He began his arc as serial killer Robert Frank on General Hospital in 2009 and will return to the daytime show in September.

“I’ve been on like three large arcs there, so I’m very friendly with them,” said Franco about the show. “It is an outlet that I love because it’s so unique. On a soap opera they have to generate a show every day, so they’re dying for new concepts. It’s a great place to go and collaborate.”
