AOL continues to beef up its original online-video programming with Making A Scene With James Franco, a 10-episode series featuring the Oscar nominee, Scott Haze and Ahna O’Reilly reimagining iconic movie scenes for their own comedic purposes. Films to get the Franco treatment include The Godfather, Batman, Beetlejuice, Titanic and Grease. He’ll also mash-up Reservoir Dogs with Dirty Dancing, and remake The Shining into a romantic comedy, which, of course, it was always meant to be.
The series debuts September 17 with three episodes on AOL Originals. It is exec produced by Vince Jolivette and Jay Davis for Rabbit Bandini Productions and Eric Day, Mark Koops and Michael Mihovilovich for Trium Entertainment.
Here’s the trailer:
