James Franco is currently considered one of the busiest men in the entertainment industry; acting, directing, and writing almost a dozen films this year alone, on top of his art projects, college teaching, poetry, music career, and much more.

Twelve years ago, in 2001, an unknown Franco impressed audiences with his impeccable portrayal of Hollywood legend, James Dean, in HBO’s feature biopic. Now, fast forward to 2013, and Franco is revisiting his roots with a biopic of ‘Rebel Without a Cause’ star, Sal Mineo.

Simply entitled ‘Sal’, Franco’s film “chronicles the final day in the life of actor Sal Mineo, 1950s teen idol and an Academy Award nominee for his roles in ‘Rebel Without a Cause’ and ‘Exodus,’ as described in the film’s one-sheet.

“Almost two decades later, Mineo is no longer the marquee sensation he had once been — but he has become open about his homosexuality and is finding his way to becoming the actor and director he has always wanted to be. Featuring a magnetic performance by Lauren, Franco's intimate portrait finds the human details in a larger-than-life Hollywood story,” the description continues.

Completed in 2011, ‘Sal’ is finally set to premiere on VOD October 22nd before debuting in select theatres on November 1st.
