James Franco To Publish Debut Poetry Collection

Movie star and author James Franco has inked a book deal to publish his debut poetry collection with Graywolf Press. Publication is set for April of 2014.

In an interview with MTV News, Franco said was pondering “the idea of L.A. as a place where people’s dreams can come true, but also L.A. as a place that eats its young.” He had already written poems about a famous Los Angeles hotel and Lindsay Lohan.

Here’s an excerpt: I’ve done a few projects about actors that have died young — James Dean, River Phoenix and Brad Renfro. Lindsay and I had reconnected at that time. I had been writing some poems about the Chateau Marmont and one or two of the poems involved Lindsay [Lohan].” (Link via Don Linn, Image via Twitter)
