Franco picks Garden Of Last Days?

James Franco could direct The Garden Of Last Days

James Franco is in talks to direct and star in The Garden Of Last Days.

The Oz The Great And Powerful star has apparently "committed" to the big-screen adaptation of Andre Dubus III's book, the follow-up to House Of Sand And Fog, reported Deadline.

The story, which has been adapted by Hanna Weg, follows the lives of three "deeply flawed, driven people" including a stripper, an angry lonely punter and a foreigner on the brink of carrying out a deadly act.

While the novel is originally set around 9/11, the author has given his blessing for the film to be set in present-day New York.

Filming is expected to begin in New York in July.

James - who will premiere his new film As I Lay Dying at the Cannes Film Festival in May, which he directed and starred in - has various films coming up including crime thriller The Iceman, biopic Lovelace and Paul Haggis' romantic drama Third Person.
