James Franco may be joining the X-Men Universe as Multiple Man


It seems that we may be seeing a whole lot more of James Franco as he is currently in talks to play the lead in a Multiple Man movie.

Multiple Man is Jamie Madrox, who, in the comics, conveyed his cloning powers at birth, when a second, identical version of him appeared after the doctor slapped the infant to get him to breathe. His father, a worker at the Los Alamos Nuclear Research Center, moved his family to a remote farm where his son — fitted with a special suit to control his powers designed by X-Men patriarch Professor Xavier — lived quietly until the suit malfunctioned and he began to go crazy. His cloning abilities drove Madrox to have various collisions and collaborations with both the X-Men and Fantastic Four

The character was one of the X-Men and was briefly seen in X-Men: The Last Stand when he was played by Eric Dane.

Deadline is reporting that Allan Heinberg (Wonder Woman) is writing the script, with Simon Kinberg and his Genre Films producing along with Franco and Ramona Films.

The film came out of another collaboration between Franco and Kinberg, The Hardy Men. The idea is for James and Dave Franco to play the grown up versions of The Hardy Boys.
