Earlier this month, it was revealed that James Franco would produce and star in a MULTIPLE MAN spin-off project. Speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, Franco acknowledged that he does “have a superhero” property that he’s “developing” with 20th Century Fox.
“I don’t know how much I can say. But I will say I am producing and performing in it. It’s early stages. I think probably what I can say is, like anything, there’s a need to develop more.”
“Our bottom line MO is, how can we push this into new ground? A little bit, but still make it entertaining? [But] what I love about what Simon Kinberg and Fox and the X-Men people have done with Deadpool and Logan — it took a while to get there, maybe 10 years — but they are going to go hard R. And we’re going to take this superhero thing and really just push it into a new genre. So we’re working with Simon Kinberg on an X-Men property.”
