James Franco is teaming up with AOL for a unique web series Making a Scene with James Franco, which you can check out in the first trailer. The actor is teaming up with Scott Haze and Ahna O'Reilly for this 10-episode web series where they recreate scenes from classic movies.
Take a look at the first footage from the series, which debuts September 17 with the first three episodes, then take a look at the official press release for more details.
Making a Scene with James Franco, an innovative ten-episode comedy showcasing James Franco's recreation of cinema's most iconic moments, will launch Wednesday, September 17th on AOL Originals.
Born out of the film buff's love of movies and a childhood spent acting out scenes with his brothers, Making a Scene features James collaborating with his creative team and fellow actors - including Scott Haze (Child of God) and Ahna O'Reilly (The Help) - to produce one-of-a-kind reimaginings of classic big-screen moments. Whether it's an irreverent twist on genre or a mash-up of two entirely different scenes, the series throws convention out the window and in the end delivers a truly unique - and always hilarious - twist on cinematic history.
Iconic movies slated to be dissected by James include The Godfather, Batman, Beetlejuice, Titanic and Grease, among others, while the timeless Dirty Dancing will cross paths with the gritty Reservoir Dogs and horror classic The Shining will be transformed into a feel-good rom-com.
The first three episodes of Making a Scene will be available beginning Wednesday, September 17th via the AOL Originals homepage: On.AOL.com/MakingAScene. Following that, the series will be released in two additional batches, to be announced at a later date.
Making a Scene with James Franco is executive produced by Vince Jolivette and Jay Davis for Rabbit Bandini Productions and Eric Day, Mark Koops and Michael Mihovilovich for Trium Entertainment.
