This is EXACTLY what we love about him!
You just never know what he's going to do next!
We think everyone can agree that James Franco has appeared in a pretty WIDE variety of genres, from indie films to soap operas, and now, the actor has signed up for a movie written by Sylvester Stallone that makes his Expendables flicks look like Muppet Babies!
Apparently, the project will star British badboy Jason Statham, and James will play opposite him as the villain, described as "an evil meth magnate named Gator."
That certainly sounds dark! And absolutely effing INSANE!
Well, seeing as he's done The Wizard of Oz, Spring Breakers with Selenita, and an upcoming gay sex art film this year alone, we guess the only plausible next direction is a meth'd out Rambo!
