RadarOnline is alleging that James Franco is a “cheapskate,” claiming that they obtained a casting call for his new film The Sound and the Fury which offers the potential lead female role low pay because “working with James in itself can be considered great currency.”
According to the gossip site, “The Sound and the Fury will be a feature film that will shoot for 13 days and operate on a low SAG [Screen Actors Guild] budget.”
RadarOnline claims the casting call reads, “For those wanting to work with James, that in itself can be considered great currency. He is a fantastic director and quite loyal to his actors!! This story is both deep and rich!”
For some reason, RumorFix just didn’t buy this one. We reached out to a source extremely close to Franco who tells us, “Not true. It is a low budget film but he would never say anything like that.” And although he is a confident person and great actor, the insider reveals he would never think so highly of himself to allow something like that to be written on a casting call.
