Franco plays one of the performers in the playwright’s production. The film will shoot May 6 in New York. Franco is producing with his Vince Jolivette, with Kalligheri exec producing with Steven Garcia, Rich Hill and Eric Amadio. Franco previously starred in Shadows and Lies for the film’s writer/director Anania, a teacher of Franco’s who heads the directing program at the graduate film school at NYU.
