So is this going to be Ham on Rye?
Strange that they would call it a bio-pic. But then maybe the idea of a novel that is based in parts in true events is harder to spin than "bio-pic"///
Will it follow his semi-autographical book "Ham on Rye"?
No, it focuses on his childhood.
In most circumstances I'd agree with you and while the finished product may end up off the mark. I'm hoping he pulls it off. It looks like that he's only directing, not acting. Also the kid playing 12 year old Buk is ugly enough to be believable.what the fuck would a rich hollywood pretty boy fag like james franco know about making a film on bukowski's life? blah blah blah
