James Franco Adds 'Serial Killer' To Already Packed C.V.

james_franco_tmi_120-1.jpgJames Franco -- perhaps history's greatest multipurpose agent since baking soda -- has agreed to star and to direct in a biopic of serial killer Richard Ramirez, also known as the Night Stalker (and, no, not the one that investigated monsters). Ramirez terrorized Los Angeles in the mid-80's, before being arrested and convicted of 13 counts of murder, 5 attempted murders and 11 sexual assaults. So, Oscars, Faulker and Cormac McCarthy, his line of fictional underwear, Sal Mineo, and a novel of addiction. He either is incredibly organized and incredibly tired, or has the best cocaine.
