Looks like James is pulling the old McSwitcheroo!
Back in January, we heard that James Franco was writing/directing a film adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's Blood Meridian for producer Scott Rudin.
Guess he got bored or something, because he's decided to shelve the project and make a film version of McCarthy's Child Of God instead!
Here's what James had to say about his decision to switch Cormac novels:

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.
