Actor. Writer. Director. Teacher. Bored college student. Purveyor of classic Tori Spelling TV movies? Indeed. James Franco has just added another hyphen to his already stacked status as this generation’s most ubiquitous (seriously: dude is everywhere) multi-hyphenate.
Franco will celebrate the 20th anniversary of the classic 1996 NBC movie-of-the-week Mother, May I Sleep With Danger? by remaking it for the esteemed art factory Lifetime, Vulture reports. The original Danger starred Tori Spelling as a young college student with a potentially murderous boyfriend. The brilliant thing, of course, is the fact that the title definitely doesn’t give any of that away.
Though Spelling has already been confirmed to make some sort of appearance in the new Danger, Franco is currently slated for executive production and story credits and is not attached to star. Melanie Aitkenhead and Amber Coney, who previously worked with Franco on the forthcoming adaptation of his own Actors Anonymous, will pen the script and direct.
