James Franco to Join THE GAME--A Movie About Picking Up Women
Actor James Franco is in negotiations to take on the lead role in the Brian Koppelman and David Levien (Solitary Man) film adaptation of The Game. The film is based on a book by Neil Strauss which is part memoir, part how-to guide, and "details Strauss's effort to learn the tricks to becoming a successful pick-up artist, even moving into a Sunset Strip mansion filled with other competing players to find love." Yes, the movie is about picking up women. This seems like it role that Franco could have some fun with.
Franco would take on the role of Mystery, a man who serves as Strauss' teacher in the book. According to THR Mystery later starred in a VH1 reality series called The Pick-Up Artist, which is a series that I never watched because I don't watch MTV or VH1.
