James Franco Will Record Your Voicemail Greeting for $450

Multi-tasking dreamboat James Franco is seeking $500,000 in crowd funding to make three feature films based on short stories from his book Palo Alto. Released in 2010, the book is set in his Northern Californian hometown and, inspired by his own high school experiences, is about the teenagers who grow up there. James Franco has recruited four emerging directors to work on the films — Nina Ljeti, Vladimir Bourdeau, Bruce Thierry Cheung, and Gabriel Demestree — so all he needs now is the dollar dollar bills y'all to commence filming this August. 

The crowd funding project is being hosted on Indie Gogo (Kickstarter's soft grunge sister), and the rewards for backers are pretty excellent. They range from audio recordings of three Palo Alto stories narrated by James Franco ($20), to a personalised video featuring James Franco ($350), a voicemail greeting recorded by James Franco ($450), and an original painting by James Franco ($7000). For a donation of $5,000 you can actually be in one of the films, and, for all the high rolling James Franco fans out there, for a donation of $10,000 you will receive an executive producer credit on the film of your choice, and be invited to a dinner with James Franco, which is basically the perfect opportunity to make him realise that you are soul mates.

The campaign has only been up on Indie Gogo for a few hours and has already raised over $2,000. Here's to hoping it reaches the $500,000 target! 

Too much James Franco is never enough James Franco.
