Artist Marina Abramovic Is Making a Movie About James Franco's LifeFranco attending Abramovic's The Artist is Present performance at MoMA

What else can we say about this? Famed performance artist Marina Abramovic is making a movie about actor/director/poet/filmmaker/artist/photographer James Franco's life. Calling Franco "the most interesting actor of the moment," Abramovic responded to Elle's question of why she's doing the film with, "Why? Because he takes risks, and when you take risks, you can fail. But he takes failure and risk all with the same intensity. He could just be another Hollywood actor and that’s it—like everyone else. But he’s crossing all kinds of borders and not always with great success. For him, process is more important than the result."

Many know Franco as a sleepless Renaissance man, and while some of his endeavors seem over the top, we'd love to learn more about the intricate details of his life, past and present.
