How Nice! Franco Bros To Work Together

franco bros to work together

Too bad they couldn't have teamed up for 127 Hours. It would have DEF been easier for James to cut off his own arm with an extra pair of hands. Ha!

In all seriousness though, we think it's kind of sweet to hear that James Franco is planning on working with his younger brother Dave.

Here's what Dave Franco had to say about collaboration plans with his big bro:

"…There's also a feature film that I'm writing for my brother and I to star in, where we play versions of ourselves named Davie and James. Without giving away too much, it all takes place around Thanksgiving and Christmas break around our hometown of Palo Alto [California]. Our real family will be in it, my real friends from home will be in it, and the vibe of it is going to be an extended version of our Funny or Die videos. It's going to be difficult for me, because it's now a 90-minute version of him giving me sh– and making fun of me."

And here's Dave on the possibility of working on something with James for the Oscars:

"There's been talks of us doing a digital short for that. We'll see, though. Potentially another installment in the Acting With James Franco. We'll see."

All sounds great to us! We'll look forward to seeing what U two put together, bbs!

The Oscars Won't Move To January

Phew!

That means more time to view all the nominated films.

Despite reports that the Oscars were planning to move their telecast from February to January, it's been confirmed that the 2011 awards show will stay in late February, and will most likely keep that date for at least the next couple of years.

So what was the big deal?

According to sources, Oscar producers felt they were being upstaged by several other awards show, including the Golden Globes and the SAG awards, which air in January.

However, the show decided to keep its show in February so as to not have any conflict with the Super Bowl, which would piss off many NFL fans.

The only other options was to move the show in March or air it on a Monday, which would hurt ratings.

In a statement by the Academy, they said:

"The Academy's Board of Governors has determined that the date of the 84th Academy Awards in 2012 will not be significantly earlier than the now-traditional last Sunday in February. A different date still remains a possibility in subsequent years, and the Academy's staff and Board will continue to evaluate the advantages and challenges associated with such a change."

The Academy Awards will air on February 27. Will U be watching??
