James Franco Targets Beautiful People

January 17, 2013


James Franco has made plans to direct and star in Beautiful People, Deadline reports. The project, which details the true story of Jay Sebring, was written by Lauren Wild. It is officially described as follows on the film's Facebook page:

The 1960s in Hollywood - the action-packed setting for the love story of Jay Sebring & Sharon Tate. Steve McQueen, Bruce Lee, The Rat Pack, even Jim Morrison were friends of Jay and Sharon. Their love was legend in Hollywood. Their murders at the hands of the Manson 'family' in 1969 effectively ended the sixties' peace-love age of innocence.

Franco, who next plays the title role in Sam Raimi's Oz The Great and Powerful, will also produce alongside David Bortolucci, Miles Levy, Vince Jolivette and Julie Yorn.
