Actor James Franco has signed on to play singer/songwriter Ani Difranco her upcoming biopic, “Just One Big Slice: The Ani Difranco Story,” which will begin shooting next week in Saigon.  Franco’s agent said the actor was ecstatic over the chance to represent the singer and feminist icon on the big screen.

When asked about the selection of James Franco, the film’s Director Brian Singer said he chose the star because “his name is close to Difranco.”  However, he wasn’t Singer’s first choice.  The director’s ideal choice was Ani Difranco but producers thought she was back into girls and they thought that represented a negative side to her ouvre.  Franco was already in character last week at the EPK shoot (see below).
