James Franco Set To “Howl”


Current GQ cover boy James Franco appears to be in a pretty gay phase of his career. Having just played Sean Penn’s lover in the upcoming “Milk,” Franco is now set to play poet Allen Ginsberg in the about-to-film “Howl,” based on Ginsberg’s most famous work. According to the Hollywood Reporter, “documentarians Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman will make their narrative writing, producing, and directing debut with the 1950s-era tale, focusing on the obscenity trial launched to censor Ginsberg’s groundbreaking book-length poem. The pair were approached by the Allen Ginsberg Trust to make a film commemorating the 50th anniversary of ‘Howl.'”
