All 15 of James Franco’s upcoming movies summarized in 140 characters or less

We love James Franco, but after all the hoopla around The Interview, we may be suffering a bit of Franco fatigue. The fact that he has 15 movies set to release in 2015 isn’t helping. We summarized each upcoming film, so hopefully, you can pick and choose the ones that are right for you. Some of them sound pretty gosh darn freaky.

1. Sausage Party

Cartoon sausage (Franco) wants to know how he’s made. He freaks out, so do your kids. Seriously.

2. Black Dog, Red Dog

Franco “teaches” film students, edits 10 of their short films together, we plop down $14. Woof.

3. Yosemite

Stand By Me meets mountain lion in California wilderness.

4. True Story

Jonah Hill plays down-on-his-luck journalist, befriends criminal (Franco, duh) and realizes they have a frightening connection.
