Movies

also talks about PRTND

I was friendly with James because he was attached to play Larry Underwood in The Stand. He asked to read it, and said he wanted to make it.

The thing that’s funny is that when you write a movie and direct it, you see it so many times by the time the movie comes out you never want to see it again. I thought it would be nice if Franco directed the movie and I could just watch something I wrote and enjoy it! [Laughs]

He was very lucky and got a great cast, including Jane Levy, Shameik Moore, Jack Kilmer, and Juno Temple.

Funny enough, on the set of my first movie I pitched it to Logan Lehrman, who is a buddy of mine. We talked about it for a while, but I didn’t end up making it with him. But he and Imogen Poots were both instrumental during scripting in that their thoughts are in there as well from conversations that we had.

It takes place over a decade and is sort of inspired by Carnal Knowledge. Jack Nicholson is one of my favorite actors, because when I was a kid my dad had all these movies on Beta like Carnal Knowledge and One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.

I even remember watching Heartburn and thinking, “Eh, this one isn’t great.” But I loved Carnal Knowledge, and I always wanted to write something in the same vein about two guys and their relationship with a girl over the course of a long period of time.

It has to do with how the male gaze in film, art, and photography morphs women into something that they’re actually not. It’s interesting, weird, and complicated, and I think James shot the first act in black and white. It looks great, the performances are really good, and I’m looking forward to seeing how it comes together.
