James Franco is set to direct and star in the film adaptation of Andrew Dubus III's "The Garden of the Last Days". This will mark Franco's second directorial effort, as his first debut "As I Lay Dying", will be showcased at Cannes.

"The Garden of the Last Days" centers around a stripper named April, her daughter, and two unusual clients. It is said to be a "painful novel about sex, parenthood, honor and masculinity. Set in the seamy underside of American life, it juxtaposes lust for domination with hunger for connection, sexual violence with family love. "

Dubus is of course known for his emotionally charged and raw books, as seen in his other book-to-film adaptation "The House of Sand and Fog", which starred Sir Ben Kingsley and Jennifer Connelly.

Are you looking forward to Franco's new project? Let us know in the comment section below!

    Incredibles was the best all rounder movie in animation history, humour for young & old, gadget & geek factor for young & old, family values, awsome backdrops of epic scale scenery.  Not to mention the... Spy factor! Secret islands! Apocalyptic doomsday robots! A freakin villain which goes by the name of "Syndrome" (totally awsome name for a villain by the way) Oh and did i mention all this in a SUPERHERO MOVIE!!!  I wish they make a sequel one day soon. Until then i guess i have marvel & DC to keep me entertained, but i suspect that any live action superhero movie may never live up to style and class of Incredibles.  PIXAR are truly genius. Thank you FROM, Nayan, U.K.
