She has this idea for a film. I want to do it because it’s a little like Sunset Boulevard. A woman is alone in a big house in L.A. She doesn’t want to go out. She starts to go crazy, and becomes paranoid because she feels like people are watching her. Even in her own house. It’s like an awesome B-movie that lives in Lana’s head. It’s about her, and it’s not about her. Just like her music.
James Franco is really down for Lana Del Rey, earlier this year he wrote a short essay for V Magazine entitled “Shades Of Cool” as a tribute to her, but he’s now stepped his admiration up a gear by writing a whole book about her.
