James Franco rose to another level of fame in the Spider-Man movies where he played Harry Osborn. Franco may be hanging up his Green Goblin gear to take part in another Marvel movie.

According to Deadline, Franco is in contention to play the lead in a Multiple Man movie, which would be part of Marvel and Fox’s X-Men franchise. While not the most iconic mutant, Multiple Man’s ability to duplicate himself would certainly make leeway for an interesting film.

Imagine a movie with multiple Tommy Wiseaus.

Allan Heinberg of Wonder Woman is on board to write the screenplay with Jeremy Kramer overseeing the picture. A deal has yet to be made with Franco, who recently directed and starred in The Disaster Artist.
