And still there is more from the inventive mind of performance artist, James Franco. The movie star who ends his terrorizing run later this month on GH, as “Franco” is set for a return engagement! According to this report out today from the New York Magazine’s website, special Vulture column (Vulture had been breaking lots on the Franco/GH story throughout the last several months).
Franco says that this spring he’ll participate in a gallery show at New York’s Deitch Projects that will be shot for a subsequent “special episode” of GH. (This episode will be co-directed by Franco himself.) The Deitch exhibition will relate “to what I’ve already shot on GH,” Franco says. (A spokesperson for the gallery says plans for the exhibition and filming are not yet finalized.) Franco alluded to this addendum to his GH guest stint in a Wall Street Journal editorial published in early December. “After all of the Franco episodes are aired, my character’s storyline will be advanced in a special episode filmed in a ‘legitimate’ New York gallery. One more layer will be added to this already layer-heavy experiment. If all goes according to plan, it will definitely be weird. But is it art?” Franco says. “He wants to try to put together a feature, strangely enough, about a soap opera within a soap opera.”
