Watch the trailer for the James Franco-directed Broken Tower

James Franco can be a lot of things. A good actor. A hunk. A nice guy. An NYU student. A terrible Oscar host. An author. And now he’s going to add director to the list.

Franco wrote and directed Broken Tower, which is a biopic about famed poet Hart Crane, who committed suicide at the young age of 32. Oh yeah, spoilers.

It co-stars Michael Shannon (YAY!), but the trailer looks pretty boring. Or maybe that’s just the effect of James Franco reciting poetry monotone with a typewriter in the background. Oh, and you can also check out the movie now on Video On Demand. [Moviefone]
