James Franco Wants Your Money Published: June 18, 2013

James Franco is trying to raise $500,000 to bankroll a trilogy of movies and needs your help.

The Associated Press reports Franco started a campaign on Indiegogo Monday night so a collection of young filmmakers can adapt his 2011 short story collection, “Palo Alto.”

“Because of who I am, people often believe that it is easy to find investors and distributors for my films,” Franco wrote. “Unfortunately, things aren’t that easy. More times than not, I have put in my own money to produce my films and my student’s films. However, this time it’s different. We need more funding, I will still fund part of it but I need your help, filming three feature films back-to-back requires more funding than I can give.”
