James Franco to publish semi-autobiographical novel

Thursday January 5, 2012

James Franco is set to publish his first novel, it has been revealed.

The Milk actor – who was nominated for an Oscar for his performance in Danny Boyle's critically acclaimed flick 127 Hours – has sold his book to Amazon Publishing, reports the New York Observer.

The tome, titled Actors Anonymous, is said to be loosely based on the 33-year-old's Hollywood life.

While the book is the star's first novel, it won't be his first foray into the literary world – James released a collection of short stories, entitled Palo Alto, in 2010.

And last year the actor confirmed he had signed up to teach students at New York University's Tisch School Of The Arts how to transfer their own poetry to film.
