What's better than one "General Hospital" villain in an upcoming Hulu drama? How about two of them? Constance Towers (ex-Helena Cassadine) is teaming up with James Franco (ex-Franco) in JFK mini-series "11.22.63," which begins streaming on Netflix on Monday, February 15 -- Presidents Day.
It was in 1996 when Tori Spelling broke out of her shell as Donna Martin on the popular FOX hit "Beverly Hills, 90210" with the NBC original movie, "Mother, May I Sleep with Danger?" As the TV movie approaches its 20th anniversary, Lifetime announced today that it is remaking the classic with a story by "General Hospital's" James Franco (ex-Franco), who will also executive produce.
When several major theater chains stated they wouldn't be showing "The Interview" upon its Christmas Day release, following threats by hackers who claimed responsibility for the hacking of Sony Pictures Entertainment last month, after it became abundantly clear that the film was at the center of a massive cyber attack on the studio, Sony Pictures reversed its decision to pull the film altogether and instead opted last week to release the film as planned. As a result, the film has raked in roughly $15 million in online sales and rentals, with more than 2 million downloads, and an estimated $2.8 million in ticket sales from smaller theater chains.
James Franco's name was brought back into soap opera news last week when reports surfaced that "General Hospital" headwriter Ron Carlivati wished to bring Franco back to the soap. However, it looks like the A-list actor already has quite a few projects on his plate. One of those projects is the film "Maladies," featuring Franco as a former soap opera actor who has trouble dealing with his mental illness as well as the mental illnesses of his two housemates.
