Here's what we're learning after reading the casting call for the upcoming film The Sound and the Fury…
James Franco > money!!!
At least that's what they're hoping to convince their actors!
The new flick that Franco is both directing and starring in is trying to get actors on the cheap and they expect whomever they cast to realize that working with the Oscar-nominee will make up for the low pay!
The casting call that was sent out stated:
“For those wanting to work with James, that in itself can be considered great currency. He is a fantastic director and quite loyal to his actors!!"
Well isn't that just priceless!
The recently roasted Franco is adapting the William Faulkner novel and is specifically searching for an African-American woman to play the part of Dilsey, one of the servants of the Compson Family.
Ohhhhh the irony.
Look, there's nothing wrong with trying to make a movie on a bare bones budget. But when a millionaire movie star starts telling other actors that the gift of working with him is better than any paycheck…
Tell that to the bill collector!
We're dying to know just how low they're going to go come payday.
Maybe the check will be made out for ZERO dollars and ZERO cents.
But at least they'll have James' autograph!
