James Franco is Now Producing Fashion Docs?

In Industry News, What's New by Lauren Parker

PHaVjyMiAXRpef_1_mNew York–Guessing what James Franco will do next could be quite a parlor game. The self-made Renaissance Man has held the titles of actor, novelist, artist, Oscar Host, model, director, college professor, Ivy League student, and surely five others we’re forgetting.

James-Franco-gucci-530x750Apparently he’s also amped up his interest in fashion by producing The Director, a documentary on Gucci, which is already generating lots of pre-release buzz.

Premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival, the doc focuses on Frida Giannini, Gucci’s creative director. The behind-the-scenes doc shows her inspirations, her process, her frustrations, and how it all comes together to create one of the most influential runway shows each season.

Franco puts himself into the film as well as a Gucci aficionado. Of course. As we know from the modeling shot at right, he looks pretty good in Gucci.
