James Franco’s next project is a little weird, even for James Franco. The renaissance man will hold a séance in an attempt to contact dead playwright Tennessee Williams, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Of course, the whole thing is part of a New York City performance art festival called Performa. Franco will use a Ouija board in the Nov. 13 performance, a commissioned piece called Three Artists in Search of Tennessee. (More James Franco stories.)
