James Franco is no stranger to playing a comic book character. He’s well known for playing Spidey’s best friend then turned super villain Harry Osbourne on the Sam Raimi Spider-Man movies. Now, according to Deadline, Franco is attached to star as a lesser known X-Man for Fox called “Multiple Man”. Also attached to the project are Wonder Woman screenwriter Allan Heinberg and, as every other superhero film at Fox, Simon Kinberg is producing.
Multiple Man’s super powers are very self explanatory, think of Michael Keaton in Multiplicity and you’ll get the gist of it. Franco seems to be on a roll with The Disaster Artist hitting theaters next month to much anticipation and acclaim. As for Fox, they really seem to be digging deep for IPs to make into movie franchises.
No production start or release dates have been announced.
