Where does this guy find the time??

James Franco's latest project will have him writing the screenplay and directing William Faulkner's literary classic, As I Lay Dying, for the big screen.

Fox Searchlight has already committed to the film with hopes that the project will begin development by next Spring.

He's also reportedly writing and directing Cormac McCarthy's Blood Meridian with Scott Rudin for 2012.

Out of the recent films Franco has been involved with recently, he says this is the film he's the most "attached to."

AND he will be doing all of these projects while still attending classes at Yale University and the Rhode Island School of Design.

Unbelievable!

    Seems like a very cool dude.

    Judging from his appearance, it's because he never sleeps.

    Even with all he has going for him, there is no way that James Franco's life could be as interesting as Paulie D's. After all, Paulie has a reality show, so that means he has so much more going for him…

    This dude is burning the candle at both ends. Slow down James or it could be a great case of OCD. Smart and good sense of humor but smell the roses.

    LOVE and admire james Franco - an artist, an intellectual, and a risk-taker. And hot to boot. He was really good on General Hospital too. Wonder what he will do next?
