James Franco is certainly a versatile man, starring in comedies like Date Night, enrolling in a PhD program and returning to daytime sudser General Hospital for a recurring role! He is also set to star in Ricky Stanicky, where he would play the title character. The script was written by Jeff Bushell, who struck gold with Beverly Hills Chihuahua.
The film would be an ensemble comedy in the vein of The Hangover and begins when three teens pull a prank and burn down a house in their neighborhood. They create a fake person to take the blame and his name is Ricky Stanicky! Twenty years later, the accidental arsonists are still using this alibi/persona to get out of every uncomfortable situation in life. When their wives force them to set up a meeting with Stanicky, they hire an actor to portray him.
Do you think this sounds like a funny movie?
