James Franco is everywhere these days.
While currently nominated for Best Actor for 127 Hours
co-hosting the Academy Awards with Anne Hathaway, and earning a bazillion post graduate degrees (ok, maybe not a bazillion…but at least one or two) Franco has been offered a lead role
. Yes, the classic feature-length Japanese anime that's been in development forever and once had Zac Efron attached. The Hughes Brothers are already attached to direct this PG-13 live action adaption financed through Leonardo DiCaprio's production company Appian Way. The question is, will Franco accept and more importantly, what do you think? Good fit or should another actor embody the role? --Derrick Deane
