TLA Releasing Acquires James Franco’s “The Ape”

TLA Releasing Acquires James Franco's "The Ape"

On its first day at the American Film Market (AFM), TLA Releasing has acquired rights to actor James Franco‘s directorial debut, “The Ape.” Franco — perhaps best known to some as Peter Parker’s best-friend-turned-nemesis Harry Osborn in the “Spider-Man” movies — directed from a script that he co-wrote with Merriwether Williams. In “The Ape,” Franco plays a frustrated writer who leaves his family and suburban life behind for a rundown apartment in the city to concentrate on his novel. When he moves into the apartment, he discovers his roommate is a foul-mouthed ape. The movie is tentatively set to be released on DVD next March. [M.L. Liu]
