James Franco Hopes to Direct Adaptations of William Faulkner and Cormac McCarthy

james_franco_tmi_120-1.jpgLooks like James Franco is starting 2011 like he ended 2010: With a loaded schedule of unexpected projects that he's hoping to get off the ground. According to Roger Friedman, Franco is planning to direct an adaptation of William Faulkner's As I Lay Dying from his own screenplay. Additionally, he's also interested in adapting Cormac McCarthy's Blood Meridian, which you'll recall was one of the movies Ridley Scott was never going to direct. Expect Franco to squeeze these in when he isn't hosting the Oscars, starring on General Hospital, going to class and doing press for Your Highness. [Showbiz411]
